Not a solution, but a confirmation. My Canoscan Lide 60 is no longer recognized by the system. It seems as though it does not power up. It gets its power from the USB interface. There is no "on" switch. Are there diagnostic tools available?
I'm not sure if this will work on the lide 20. I have an lide 35, and there are no 64 bit drivers for it. I downloaded and installed the drivers for the lide 60, told the computer to manually find the lide 60 drivers for my scanner, and installed the canoscan toolbox for vista 64 bit. Works like a champ.
Drive cable is attached in two places. One at the hinge end of the scanner. The other at the control panel end. The hinge end connection is a simple ball-end that slips into the slot. The control end fixing is more complicated. The wire cable at this end has a spring attached. This is fixed to a plastic fitting which clips into place. Look carefully the plastic fitting. Fit the spring over the small peg and take the cable round the radiused part of the plastic fitting. And refit the plastic clip to the scanner body.
Fiddlly but doable.
The cable often comes loose when someone investigates how to take the scanner to pieces. Underneath they see a round pin with a small rectangle on each side. They press the round pin in slide the piece of plastic in the rectangle and hey presto they'll undone the cable. Oooops!!!!!!!!
