SOURCE: Installation problems

Did you plug the scanner in before installing the software? Common mistake... Disconnect the scanner, uninstall the software completely, re-boot, open up the Device Manager, Click View-->Show Hidden devices--> Look for any scanner related drivers that are still installed for the scanner (they will moste likely be grayed out since it is unplugged) and uninstall them (Right click-->Uninstall). Re-boot again, install the software, wait for the software install to prompt you to plug in the device. Follow the quick start guide if it came with one. Check the manufacturers web site for updated drivers, software for you model.

SOURCE: How to instal Mustek cu 600 scanner with win xp

there is not drivers or software made for Windows XP.
however, you can use the win98 or WinME software. as long as the Windows Xp is running at 32 bits. I have done that with HP flat bed scaner.
don't worry about the non-certified software with MS.

My pc doesnt recognise the scanner

The first thing I would try a different cable between the PC and scanner just in case it's faulty. Use a 6-foot USB) cable.
If this doesn't fix the problem:
Disconnect the scanner.
Remove the scanner driver so that we can start from scratch.
Go to and select your scanner model.
Download the twain driver and panel zip file.
Extract the file and install the driver
After installation, restart your system.
Once the system has restarted, reconnect the scanner.
Check the scanner icon on the control panel to make sure that it has installed successfully and that the red X is not shown.
If this does not work let me know.

Smartbase MP360 Scanner Not Identified by MS Vista

One thing to check and be sure of is that your printer cable (USB) is definately a USB 2.0 cable. Canon have an issue with their printers with scanners in that the data flow sometimes isn't sufficient when an older USB cable is used. The slightest drop of data on startup or during scanning will cause a stop.

Worth trying and has sometimes solved the problem for my customers.

No install disk

Install disks for hardware get stale really fast.  You download a current driver for WinXP from
  If you want to install on Linux, I think there might be a couple of compatible drivers for that too.  Otherwise it's not too bizarre, things all riff off the same TWAIN-II spec so you don't have a lot of rewrite to do.

  If you work in a Mac environment, there might be some SilverFast drivers for that family of scanner.  They cost money and are worth it (if you use the scanner.)

Go to and search for the TWAIN drivers by model number.

If that doesn't work, you might be able to salvage the CD by getting a resurfacing machine.
