Have you tried downloading the drivers from the Canon Website? Reason I asked, is because I was able to get them from the site, and install them on my system without the code. What I would try to do first, is remove the scanner from your PC, goto the site which I've provided a link below, just copy and paste the entire link into your browser, and select "Drivers and Downloads" and then select your Operating System, and download the ones you need. If you're still in need you can reach me at support@computech-sa.com

My Canoscan 4200F has no OCR software. How do I get it?


OCR software is usually a third-party program. Sometimes it is available on the original driver CD but it isn't included in the downloaded driver software. In the case of the CanoScan 4200F, the CD included the OmniPage SE OCR program. The SE indicates a Special Edition only bundled with the scanner and was only available for the OS versions that had been released when the scanner was first available. If you have the original CD (for Win98-XP), try to install the program using the Custom install option. (Check your current OS version. A 32-bit OS is more likely to support the OmniPage SE. With Windows Vista and 7, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System to determine the version. x64 indicates a 64-bit OS. ) If your current computer doesn't have an optical drive, use an external optical drive to install the program.

If you do not have the CD or your OS is incompatible with the Omnipage version on the CD, you will need to either purchase OmnuPage ($99 with a rebate from many vendors), AbbySoft's OCR program or one of the other OCR programs. SimpleOCR is free for personal use, http://www.simpleocr.com/Info.asp . The biggest problem with the free OCR programs is that they do not handle documents with columns properly.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I tried to use my Canon 4200f with windows vista 32bit and get the usual error.


Hello,
This scanner does work with Vista, as well as Windows 7. I have the exact same one. Goto Canon's website and download the latest driver for Vista. Here is the link: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_4200f#DriversAndSoftware
Download and install the driver and the CanoScan Toolbox software.

I cant get my Canoscan 4200 F flatbed scanner to work with Windows 7 Home version. Any solution?


You should try downloading the Windows 7 version of the software and drivers for you scanner from the Canon support web site: (click here)
From the "Select OS" drop-down, select either the standard (32bit) or 64 bit version of Windows 7 depending on what you have installed on your system.
From there, download the 4200F Scanner Driver and the CanoScan Toolbox software and select "Open" after download.
Good Luck!

Lost my CanoScan 4400F Setup utility disc CD-ROM need to install it.


If you do not have the CD, then you need to download the software from one of the following locations:

Official Canon Drivers and Software

Canon USA:DRIVER & DOWNLOADS

After downloading is complete, unplug the scanner USB from computer and run the software that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you when to connect USB.

Canoscan 4200f Problem with Vista 32 bit


I got mine working after experiencing the same problem.

I had mine hooked up to a USB hub, after I hooked it directly to the USB ports in the back of my computer, everything just worked fine.

Weird that it worked on the USB hub on XP and not vista though.
