I lost my mercury flatbed scanner 2400cu+, i need to download the installation software. thanks for the help.


go to this site
close to the bottom you'll see the download link for different operating systems. They don't have support for vista but i think you can use windows xp with compatibility or windows 7.

hope this helps.

I have many years repairing Canon Scanners so maybe I can help you.

I assume you are running Windows 7 because of how you worded your question. I went to Canon's website to see what drivers were available for you there. The closest thing they have is Vista drivers which may or may not work for you. But its worth a try to install them they are close to Window 7 drivers. Try and install them this way.

First unplug the cable from you scanner to your computer.

Second go here

(copy this whole line into your web browser or click on it to see if it will take you there) Then download the drivers from Canons website and install them. On install it will tell you that the drivers are not digitally signed for your operating system do you still want to install them just say YES and complete the install.

Third once the drivers install it may ask you to plug in your scanner (make sure your scanner is powered on and ready to use) then plug it in. If at the end of the driver install it doesn't ask you to plug in your scanner then just plug it in but make sure it is powered on and ready to use.

Fourth A window may pop up after you plug in your scanner to your computer and it should say a new device or drivers are being installed. Once this completes its install I want you to reboot (restart) your computer. Once your computer comes back up after the reboot you should be able to scan.

If this does not work as I described it to you then contact canon either by phone or email and ask for drivers for Windows 7 or even beta drivers if they even have those available yet.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please give me a YES that you were helped. Thank you.

I have just upgraded to windows 7 and cannot install my scanoscan Lide 20/30 flatbed scanner

I have repaired Canon scanners for many years so here is my suggestion for you.

Canon like all vendors was not ready for Windows 7. I would google Canon CanoScan LIDE 30 drivers. Im sure there up to speed by now and probably have new drivers avalible for your scanner. Make sure you download the drivers from Canon's official website. Once the new drivers are downloaded disconnect your scanner cable from your computer. Now install the new drivers you just downloaded. Once the new drivers are installed, with your scanner powered on reconnect the cable that comes from the scanner to your computer. A pop up window should come up saying new drivers are being installed. Once that process completes I would suggest you reboot your computer and you now should be ready to scan.

I hope this helps you out.

Microtek Scanmaker 4800 does not work on Vista no drivers all xp. How can you get scanner working?

I really you cannot use this Scanner for Vista, only before Vista came out there's no Driver Freeware available yet or the Microtek didn't not provide the driver freeware for this.
I suggest you to install it with Windows XP, it's better on Windows XP and don't need to install in Windows Vista, it's no use on it.
Or also you just buy a new one ready for Windows Vista scanner.
Provided that the Microtek didn't yet give a driver for this then install it where it is compatible with.
Good luck!

Scanner error

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the driver. If it occurs again, the the manufacturer of the scanner of yours may have some special thing (security) in the flatbed of the scanner. Like for example scanning money or so.

I have found a support site for your scanner that may be of some help... Please check your ports are compatible.. as far as speed and type. Have you installed the MOST up to date drivers etc? Check all cables etc.
