    scan button cannot open twain driver

  • Warp333 Dec 17, 2008

    Same problem. Tried various applications and they all tell me something like " Unable to open TWAIN source" and other TWAIN problems. I've remeoved and reloaded drivers, ScanGear, CSU stuff etc...
    I also tried to go to XP Conrtol Panel>Scanners and Cameras>. My scanner shows up and when I run the diagnostic from there the scanner does a short sweep and XP reports that it's working fine. Then I go to Start>Programs>Accessories>Scanner and Camera Wizard and it says it can't find any scanners and to add it in the Conrol Panel>Scanners and cameras. Worthlessly circular troubleshooting info. ANybody get this one figured out???

I have downloaded and installed all 3 available Canon downloads for VISTA, but nothing seems to be working! I really don't want to buy a NEW scanner ..... I haven't used this one all that much! Can ANYBODY help?

For any device to work you need 'drivers'. It is difficult to find a driver for an old product with a new OS like vista. You can try to get drivers for XP or Win2000 and use them.

Hi,

>If You Want to Edit or Print the Scanned images MP Navigator EX enables you to edit the scanned images, such as optimizing or trimming. You can also start application software from MP Navigator EX to edit or print the scanned images. For detailed operations of MP Navigator EX, refer to the Scanning Guide on-screen manual.

I found these directions from your Canon PIXMA MX310 User's Manual online (page 24). Other functions are available for reading.

To make sure you have got the correct program that you are using, uninstall all associated programs from your computer thru "Programs and Features" that can be found in Control Panel. Then, you may download your printer's drivers and softwares thru this LINK. Make sure to download the appropriate version for your Windows.

HOW TO SCAN THE DOCUMENTS IR4570 TO P.C ????


On the device you want to chose the SCAN option and set it to ONLINE.
You then need an application that does TWAIN scanning and aquire image data. Set your scanner device yo "Canon Color Network Scangear".
A freeware product you can use to test is irfanview
You would otherwise need to do an aquire / TWAIN scan from MS Word or Adobe Acrobat (full/pro) or another software that does TWAIN scanning.

I have a Canon scanner 5000f. All of a sudden the computer won't recognize it and says it is "unable to select Twain Source." What do I do?


First you need to follow the instructions for installing the scanner. It is important whether you connect the scanner before the software is installed and whether you work from the new hardware found box or just install the driver as software. It sometimes varies between operating systems as well.

Sometimes the twain files can become corrupted. Since other devices like digital cameras use the twain files they aren’t erased with a driver uninstall or overwritten with an install. If the twain files are gone the driver install will also install them.

Uninstall ScanGear (I think that is the Canon driver software) and remove the scanner if it is still showing in device manager and control panel under scanners. Unplug the USB.
Do a search for twain and delete all you find in the Windows folder. There is probably a folder and several files – delete them all. Do not remove any twain files not in the Windows folder.
Dig out the instructions and reinstall the scanner exactly according to them.

joslloyd universal send is not available on the 3300 but it is on the 3300i.
You link to an old version of scangear software. Use http://downloads.canon.com/cpr/software/devicemanagement/NWSG_v2.21.exe
On the 3300 press System/Options button, One of four buttons far right, next to copy, fax, mailbox.
Press Online.
Read the manual included with ScanGear for how to set it up. Or ask if you are having difficulties.

Canon scanner


TWAIN is the type of scanner driver that is used for this scanner. It is probably the most common type of scanning driver.

Did you install Toolbox? Not sure? Assuming this is Windows, click Start, All Programs, Canon. Look for open CanoScan Toolbox (4.9 I think). Once this is open, click the 'Settings' button. There should be a drop-down menu for 'Select Scanner'. Make sure this shows the CanoScan LiDE 25. If that scanner is not listed, then the scanner driver is not being seen or may not be installed.

Once it has been verified that the LiDE 25 is selected, click OK. Next, click the 'Save' button. Check the box for 'Display the Scanner Driver'. Now click the 'Scan' button at the bottom.
The next window that pops up should be ScanGear. If this happens, then everything is installed and the scanner is being detected properly. Attempt to scan or preview.

If there was a particular application you were trying to use and you are still having issues with it, please give those details.

Canon ScanGear Ir - how to set defaults?


ScanGear won't run under Vista. The scanner works with other programs. (Twain works) ScanGear fails and Vista closes it.
