Question about Nikon COOLSCAN 5000 ED Film Scanner
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....
