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?

Go to the power settings and set it to never turn off hard drive...the tick tick noise are the read and write heads working (that's what writes information on the hard drive) which is perfectly normal with an older hard drive....the hang is probably a virus or needs a good cleaning...I recommend advanced system care as a program to clean your hard drive and fix the errors....uninstall any and all programs not needed or unused

Windows Cannot Find "Copy.exe"

When i installed AVG Free last time it removed few virus including "copy.exe". so whenever i go to "My Computer" (win key + E) and double click on any hard drive then i find an error stating that (Windows cannot find "Copy.exe").
Well the solution for this "copy.exe" conundrum is to get rid of a file called autorun.inf in each of the infected hard drives. here's the solution for the problem......

Make sure you or the virus scanner is run through the infected hard drives/flash drives. to make sure the virus files is gone.
Now, some forums said you could just select "Show Hidden Files" from the option and this would enable you to see "autorun.inf" file.
Also, some entries in the "autorun.inf"may be legitimate. so to check the file (even when you can't see the file) do this: Type in the infected hard drive label followed by autorun.inf for example f:\autorun.inf
This will load autorun.inf file in notepad.if the only entry is that incriminating copy.exe then this is what i did. i tried to overwrite the file with the same name autorun.inf. that din't work because autorun file was readonly. so i saved that blank file on the desktop and simply cut it and pasted it into the drive, then selecting the overwrite option. that should stop that annoying windows cannot find "copy.exe" message every time you double click into a drive. this will solve the problem!

Microsoft Knowledge Base
Article 971029
describes an update to Autorun that restricts AutoPlay
functionality to CD and DVD media. This update is intended to stop AutoPlay
functionality from working on USB drives, external hard drives, or network
shares. This update is available for supported editions of Windows XP, Windows
Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008.

Removable USB/thumb drives use the Autorun feature to load files when the drives are plugged into the USB port. Malware exploits the Autorun feature to spread from thumb drive to PC. Disable the autorun feature to prevent malware from spreading.

The preceding describes what has likely happened to your USB ports due to Windows update disabling the autorun feature for USB thumbdrives. The thumbdrive may no longer present its data properly unless you manually invoke the autorun in its root.

How to disable Autorun function for specific devices (in my case Western Digital My Book Essential 1.5Tb External hard drive) since Autorun launches itself everytime Windows starts.

Have you tried renaming autorun.inf or the autorun folder to something else? This file or folder would be in the root directory of the drive.

That would be my guess.

Please be kind when you rate -- I admit this is a guess.

Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year

I use a cruzer 4GB to go between my Mac & my work PC. Now, on windows, it says I have a possible worm virus. When connected to my Mac - there is no virus. Something to do with something called...

I believe that Windows is having an issue with the information in the autorun.inf file.

The entire sequence is initiated when the "disk change notifcation" polling discovers a new disk in the CD or DVD ROM drive. Then, if the "Auto insert notification" feature is enabled (it is by default), Windows checks in the new disk's root directory for the existence of an "autorun.inf" file. If found, Windows then reads and follows the specific instructions this file defines. If no autorun.inf file is found, then Windows refers to the new disk by its serial number and executes the default actions associated with the (data or audio) content on the disk.

My suggestion would be to delete the autorun.inf file as it is not needed.

CD html presentation-hyperlinks don't work with other pc's

To create an Autorun-enabled CD-ROM, proceed as follows:
  • Create an Autorun.inf File
    Autorun.inf is a text file that is located in the root folder of your application CD-ROM. It provides to the computer the name and the location of the startup program for your application that is installed when the CD-ROM is inserted. The Autorun.inf file can also contain optional information including the following:
  • The name of a file that contains an icon that represents your application's CD-ROM drive. This icon appears in Windows Explorer instead of the standard drive icon.
  • Additional commands for the shortcut menu that appears when the user right-clicks the CD-ROM icon. You can also specify the default command that runs when the user double-clicks the icon. Autorun.inf files are similar to .ini files.
  • The [autorun] section contains the default Autorun commands. All Autorun.inf files must have an [autorun] section.
  • icon: Specifies the path and the file name of an application-specific icon for the CD-ROM drive.
  • open: Specifies the path and the file name of the startup application.

Autorun.infThe following is an example of a simple Autorun.inf file. It specifies Filename.exe as the startup application. The second icon represents the CD-ROM drive instead of the standard drive icon.

My Book (G:) icon is different

no you there iss no big problem.
The icon of your hdd iss created from the autorun.inf

Change hard drive icons Change hard drive icons:

To change the icon for your hard drive, create the
following file in notepad:


Notice it's two lines.
If your hard drive is C:
click Save As... and navigate to C:
and save it as autorun.inf
enclose it in quotes so Notepad won't put a .txt
on the end of it
The path specified is the typical Windows path
yours may vary, but you'll have that dll file.
The 36 at the end is the number of the icon I chose.
(Icons in a file are numbered, starting at 0.)
To see the change, open Windows Explorer; click
F5 if needed to refresh.
To preview your icon options, select an icon on
your desktop, right-click and select
Properties, then Change Icon. You can also select
any other .dll file in your computer, although most
won't have icons.
The common Windows icons are in
(xp = C:\Windows\System32\shell32.dll)
You can also point to a single icon.
Using the example above:


I have three hard drives and nine partitions; under
WinMe, I had to move the icon/dll to each
partition and edit the autorun.ini, i.e.
C:\Windows\System\Pifmgr.dll,32 became Pifmgr.dll,32.
WinMe also wouldn't let me change the icons
for the primary partitions of the first two
drives, but did let me change the
primary partition icon of the third drive.
