    I tried Ekse's solution No 1 My printer has reinstalled satisfactorily, but I can not get my scanner to work at all now.
    It comes up with the note, "unable to open Twain source" when copying to computer and it still wont copy and print.

    Yes, the printer does print from the computer - I have tested it.

If Twain drivers could be the problem:
One easy way to test your software installation's twain drivers are working,
is to use a graphics editor named IrfanView.
http://www.irfanview.com/

If you download, install and run this software,
located in the menu bar is an option named 'File'.
On selecting the 'File' option you should find an
option (near the bottom of the list) to named:
'Select TWAIN Source', click on this option
and a popup should then display valid Twain sources
for you scanner. If you see your scanner listed,
select it, and then try to scan an object (Photo).

By selecting Twain Source from the file menu IrfanView should load
your scanner's software and then scan.

If you choose the 'Copy Shop' option also in the file menu you have the
ability to bypass your scanner's software and directly scan a photo into
IrfanView.

There is a Twain driver, that is fouling up it is normally the sourse of problems with scanning devices. See if you can find the "twain driver" for your scanner,it may very well be that your old scanner is not compatable with vista, as many devices are not as of this time, and MSFT has had nothing but problems with Vist since they released it

I suggest a full reinstall of the printer and the scanner software, remove both first and install them again, see if you can print directly from scan now, if not what is the error you receive?

I have windows 7 and the cannon scanner canoscan n124ou is there a driver for windows 7?


Canon has no driver for CanoScan N1240U on its website for Windows 7. But, if you want to try with the one for Windows Vista, you can find it here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_n1240u#DriversAndSoftware

I bought the Canon Canoscan N1240u flatbed scanner. I downloaded the drivers and plugged in the cord that came with it but it doesn't do anything.


Just to be sure, did you install the driver in addition to downloading it? Full software or basic driver. The software must be installed before connecting the data cable. What OS are you using? (if you have Vista 64-bit, it is not compatible) If you didn't install the software, uninstall the OS driver and disconnect the data cable before attempting to install the Canon software. Otherwise see the notes for scanning with other software.

First are you trying to use the scanner buttons? These will only work if the full software is installed. For the buttons to work, you have to set up the scanner button destinations in the Canon software first. Also a monitoring program must be running for the button presses to work.

So try scanning from the computer first. If you still get an error, try a new data cable. If you are using a USB hub, try a direct connection. Make sure your USB ports work with a known working device. You can also check if the ports are disabled for security (in the Device Manager for Windows) or power savings (an advanced setting from the Screen Saver).

Once you have scanned successfully from the computer, go to the Settings section of the Toolbox to set the default destinations for the scan buttons.

If you only installed the basic driver, you can scan with Paint (XP or Vista), File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan. Vista also has Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) and Photo Gallery to acquire scans. I don't know the Mac software. Third-party software will also work if installed.

I hope this helps.
