Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 500F Flatbed Scanner

Open Question

Can't get this scanner to work. Keep getting this message. Release the lock switch, detatch the I/F cable and reconnect. Scanner driver will be closed. I have no idea what ANY of these mean. I have downloaded the driver for Windows XP, but it still won't work. I keep getting this message. Any bright ideas what I should do? Thanks!
