Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 60
I have been using this canoscan Lide 60 for 2 years, everything was fine. but suddenly didn't work recently and told me "cannot communicate with scanner. Cable may be disconnected or scanner maybe turned off..."
I checked the cable, it was fine. And I didn't turn it off, because I even couldn't find the switch to turn the scanner on.
Anyone knows where the swtich button is? or what happened to my scanner? Thank you in advance.
"Unable to open TWAIN source
Please check connection
Then re-start Toolbox."

Hi um i don't know if this will actually work but it did for me, I had 2 problems with the lide 60 scanner-one was a connection/cable thing and another was this "TWAIN source thing" and after installing this:
i seem to only have one....i think the connection/cable got fixed.
oh well, give it a try anyway :) cant hurt

Tips for a great answer:
Guide to installing Canon CanoScan LiDE 35, 50 and 60 on Mac OS X 10.8. Mountain Lion:
FIRST PART: DELETING OLD LiDE DRIVERS AND SOFTWARE
HD:/Library/Image Capture/Twain Data Sources
delete the CanoScan CanoScan XXXX.ds file
(Make note of any other files that may be in this folder. If other files are present, move them to the desktop for now. Then place them back after successfully using the scanner.)
delete the 'CanoScan XXXX' folder
delete the folders containing the name CanoScan, or starting with CNQL.
delete the CanoScan Toolbox Application
delete any items named "CanoScan Toolbox"
SECOND PART: MAKING YOUR SCANNER WORK
CanoScan LiDE 50 and LiDE 35 work both with the 35 driver:
CanoScan LiDE 60 driver:
VueScan 9.2 (or later) x32 for Mac OS X
Alternative to VueScan: CanoScan Toolbox. I prefer VueScan.
Try your luck with Version 4 or Version 5.
CanoScan Toolbox 4: cstbosx4934ej4.dmg
CanoScan Toolbox 5: cstbosx5014ej4.dmg
(Alternatively try and install CanoScan Toolbox 4 or 5)
