Question about Canon CanoScan N650U Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Canon N650U and Mac OSX

Is it possible for my old scanner to work with my newer OSX PowerBook G4? It used to work when I had OS 9.

I've installed the driver from the Canon website, I installed the CanonScan Toolbox software v.5.0 When I push button scanner, nothing happens. If I open Toolbox first and choose 'Scan', says it can't find the driver.

Maybe I don't have the driver in the right folder?

I'm running OS X 10.4.11

    I was able to install the Canoscan Toolbox 4.1 for OS 9, that program opens, but it still won't scan because it wants me to designate a program where the scanner photo will go. Nothing I have in OS 9 works, it says my Adobe Photoshop needs a plug-in, and it won't accept OS X programs like iPhoto.

    Maybe I should buy a new scanner, although it seems like a waste because I don't really use it that often anymore (as you can see) and I don't need it for anything really important!

    Any other ideas??

Canon only has this scanner driver in OS9 and it will run in classic mode if you are using OSX. This $40 software will work with your scanner in OSX, but for $40 you can purchase an OSX native scanner too.

Konica Minolta DiMAGE Scan Dual IV Film Scanner driver in an IMac


DS Dual 4 even works with SnowLeopard on a CoreDuo MBP. But it doesn not support Autofocus when used under USB2. You have to use a USB1.1 Port, if you want to use autofocus function. Every time the software crashes, because you tried e.g. to use autofocus with USB2, you will have to close the application, go to the folder User/Library/Preferences/DS Dual4/... and look whether there is a file name something like "MFSlib...." and pull it to the trash bin. You can start the application again. PS.: Your keyboard USB port is a USB 1.1 port!

Can't get drivers for CanoScan N650U scanner for Vista 64 bit. Anyone have a work-around?


This works for 32-bit, maybe try the same for 64 and see if it works?
1) Download the drivers for XP from Canon's website
2) Install the drivers.
3) They will install to C:/Temp/CanoScanCSUv571a, go there
4) There is a compressed file called: CanoScanCSUv571a.exe in the foler
5) Use 7-zip to uncompress the folder
6) Plug in your scanner
7) Go to your device manager under the Control Panel
8) Go to Imaging Devices and select your scanner
9) Right click to update driver information
10) Select browse my computer for driver software
11) Type in: C:\Temp\CanoScanCSUv571a
12) Click next and your scanner will work.

Installing CanoScan Lide 20 / Lide 30 into Mac OS X 10.5.5


I found this scanner at a garage sale today, and had trouble finding this info myself. Finally stumbled upon this site ( http://cadwell.livejournal.com/39545.html )

I'm using it on a Powermac G5 but both the driver and toolbox app say they are univeral binary. Hopefully this gets you up and running too:

CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OS X 10.5
This technical help may seem completely out of place on this art blog but after scouring the internet for 3 hours trying to set my 6 year old scanner up on my new MacBook, I found this info half way down a lengthy comments section of a random blog. So I thought I'd post it here (slightly altered) as a message in a bottle to anyone else in need of it.

How to set up CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OSX 10.5
STEP 1:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=6623
STEP 2:
Select MAC OS X
STEP 3:
Download BOTH:
LiDE 20/LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver. 7.0.1.1aX
(Mac OS X)

lide20lide30n670un676un1240uosx7011aen.dmg
CanoScan Toolbox Ver. 4.1.3.0X
(Mac OS X)

CSTb4130MXE.dmg.gz
STEP 4:
INSTALL CanoScan Toolbox Ver. 4.1.3.0X
STEP 5:
INSTALL LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver. 7.0.1.1aX . Make sure Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins is selected as the install location.
STEP 6:
You will be asked to RESTART. You should.
STEP 7:
When you run CanoScan you can choose Photoshop as the default program to open the image in once it has scanned. You do not need Photoshop to open using Rosetta for this to work.
NOTE: If you want to scan directly from within Photoshop CS3, you need to copy the driver 'ScanGear CS 7.0X' which is found in Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins into the photoshop pluggins folder, Applications> Adobe Photoshop CS3>Plug-Ins>Import/Export. You also need to open photoshop in Rosetta mode. Apple + I on the photoshop icon and select 'Open using Rosetta'. I would not recommend using this method though.
STEP 8:
Go to System Preferences>Accounts>Login Items and remove both of the following:
N067U_ButtonManager.app
N124U_ButtonManager.app
STEP 9:
SCAN.

Upgraded to MAC OS X; is there a compatible driver?


This scanner was released back in the late 90's, before Os X was released. Heidelberg discontinued support of all but their high end Nexscan scanners. So unfortunately, newer drivers were never made for this product.
