Well basically, if the machine is WinXP or newer you can plug the unit in the computer while its running (most likely it is connected via USB), when the install wizard pops up on the screen cancel it out and run the installation cd that came with the scanner

i am surprised that it is not a stand alone scanner. for almost the same price i have a wolverine which basically works on mains power, or powered from laptop. it scans and stores the images in the unit. those can be later transferred to the laptop while connected via usb. one question, does the scanner lcd show the scanned image? if not may be something is wrong with the unit itself.

Scans but wont show up in preview

your program may be corrupted. uninstall the device in control panel, remove the usb cable from the back of the scanner, uninstall the software, restart your computer.
without attaching the cable to the unit, install the software:
after you begin installation it will ask you to plug in the unit. Do this so the install can finish. after the software is installed, restart the computer and run the program. when you first run the program it should ask you to run a test. make sure the selection for aligning the scanner is selected and RUN THE TEST! a lot of people just skip this but it is very important to do this as the system doesn't know where the initializing point of the scanner is. your computer is like a child. it has to learn too!!!
If you have any problems let me know and please leave positive feedback for me. Jethro

Scanner doesn't work

You most probably need to install/re-install the printer/scanner software and scanner manager.
Above please find your canon drivers, download these and install as Administrator...also make sure you install the scanner driver as well as the printer driver...also you need a Scan manager too..
If you have installed the scanner before you need to remove it from device manager, by removing the drivers. Once that's done, unplug the printer. Then reboot,.(If you have a CD/DVD that came with the unit, you can and should use this, else download the files from the link given) Then install the new software now do NOT connect the device, only connect when/if asked, or at the end of the install and after a reboot, then, plug in the printer/scanner.
It should be detected and install itself, it may ask for drivers if so, show it where they are, and it should proceed and you should now be able to scan and print, now you must use a scanning program, and or the interface that came with the unit, Canon Scanmanager, however, if installed correctly you can also scan into Mspaint, Word, Publisher etc. but there are many free scan manager programs on the 'net. a good one is Vuescan, now the beauty of this program is that is doesn't require any "Drivers" as it has it's own, so as long as the scanner physically works, then this program will scan with it.
Another is Freekapture ,
This uses TWAIN drivers, that should install at the same time.
Above are a couple of DIY sites to help also.

Dell laptop wont recognize ls2000 scanner

The LS-2000 is a "legacy" device to XP and the Nikon software. It needs to be connected to a true SCSI bus adapter, and it's actually pretty finicky about which ones will work in XP. Sorry, you won't be able to use this with your laptop.
