Question about Canon CanoScan D660U Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Setup I have had this scanner for a number of years and it was working perfectly until I had to clean my hard drive. The CD autorun informs me that the Twain driver is not installed and I don't know why. I did have earlier version of Windows when I first installed the scanner. I now have XP professional and it won't load the program correctly for it to run. Can you help?

    Not sure if you are using the Add printer in Windows to install printer software or letting the CD autorun and self-install.

    Best thing might be to start clean. That is, delete the printer icon from the printer list (Printers and Faxes screen). Then go to Control panel Add/ Remove programs and remove all applications relating the HP all-in-one. Disconnect the Printer cable (USB or LAN) and then re-intall CD setup.

    Follow the prompts and connect the printer back when asked. Wait until the full install is complete.

    Canoscan 9950F scanner will not scan with Win XP

    Since you have had the scanner a while, you may not have a recent enough driver to work well with XP: until I smashed my 9950F, I was scanning under XP with the ScanGear CS 10.324a driver with no problems (the driver is dated 22 June 2007). You can download it from several sources on the web, I used


    Other than that, they report some issues if the system drive is NTFS, but I was using NTFS for my system (and only) drive, so I don't see any reason for this to be your problem.

    Good luck,

    LIDE-70 installation

    What OS are you using? Why don't you just download the drivers from the website?

    Sounds like you're using a Mac and they sent you a Windows only CD.

    I had a similar problem when I upgraded to Vista. Try running setup.exe from within the software CD ( in the english folder I think) rather than using the autorun.
