Question about Nikon COOLSCAN 5000 ED Film Scanner

1 Answer

Launching my scanning software launches my browser, then crash

Ok, so I am trying to install my Canon N656U scanner on my laptop. I have installed the drivers, and the Canon ScanGear Toolbox from the Canon site (several times actually), I have installed them, the computer sees them, I can run the 'test' function from within the properties, but when I launch software (either manually, or by pushing the button on the scanner) My browser tries to launch, then, the software crashes.  Now, I have tried the Canon ScanGear software, as well as the built in Scanner and Camera Wizard, as well as a couple of others that I downloaded...it does not matter, it all does the same thing, launches, Browser launches, then the scan software (whatever one it is) crashes.
I have deleted everything (hardware, drivers...anything I can find) and reinstalled several times (in the neighborhood of 20 times) in all different orders.
HELP...please...I have a TON of scanning to do, and I do not want to sit out at the desk....

The setup may be accessing your browser for registration of the product. This could be causing your firewall to stop it as it doesn't recognise the request. You need to allow the programme associated with the product to access the internet.

I have a canon n122ou n65ou n656u flatbed scanner and i have a new laptop gateway windows 7 and it said could not detect device, it did not download what is wrong?


Looks as if that scanner is not compatible with windows 7. Best thing to do to verify it, go to this site:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=6858

Even though your running windows 7, choose vista as your OS.

Then download the software and see if it will install. If it installs then your good to go. I've had other hardware that wouldn't work with windows 7 but yet i go to install the vista drivers and i've gotten stuff to work. Give it a try so you know for sure.

EPSON Scanner 4490 Problem


Hi,
So you've completely ininstalled. Now you should download and install nCleaner, and do a Clean System, and then a Clean Registry. Now:
Download and install the latest 4490 driver software from here:
http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=+ab4PwTTw7cRmkks+y0Lel8FKCE2A3PV7yPoa5gsU002FboU003D

The Epson Copy Factory Update may be of some use to you also.

Hope this helps

Lost my CD-ROM


First I'll assume that by "reboot" you mean you had to "re-install" the operating system on the computer. Simply rebooting the computer doesn't mean you have to re-install the software.

I found the driver page for the Canon N656U scanner here:

<http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=8008>

You can download the equivalent software that was on the installation CD from there and re-install your software and driver that way.

Downloading software (Twain??)


The download website for your scanner is here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=8008

A TWAIN driver is simply a generic scanner software driver that your specific Canon software can hook into and use.

I recommend starting with this one and see if it installs the TWAIN driver you need:

"CanoScan Toolbox v2.2.3 for Windows 98/Me/2000/XP"
