Hi ymonique,
Can you tell us whether this worked? I have the same problem but the system still cannot find the scanner when I use a USB to parallel cable.

Hi, Since as you posted, your ACER Aspire 5552NWXCi notebook has no 25 pin Parallel/LPT1 port, what you need is an adapter that will convert your scanner's 25 pin parallel (DB25)to USB. Shown below is such an adapter made by Targus Model# PA096U and commonly called a USB to Parallel Adapter. Do a google for USB to Parallel adapter or cable. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. good luck and kind regards.

I hab Bought one USB-to-Parallel connector to connect my Canon Scanner .But I cannot able to scan .It displays Error Code 0*00070800. No scanners detected My Scanner mobel No :Canon N640P ex


I have many years of experince repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion.

First off I would go back to USB its faster then a parallel cable for scanning purposes. Second if your computer is a very old one then just get a usb card and install it in to your computer. Also make sure you have the latest drivers for the operating system your running. The drivers are free on Canons website. Just google Canon Canoscan N640P drivers it should take you directly to Canon's website also I would download capture perfect its free also an will function perfectly with your scanner.

When you install the newest drivers make sure your scanner is disconnected from your computer. Once the drivers are installed then attach the USB cable to your computer. You should get a message saying new drivers are being installed then reboot your computer and you should be good to go with whatever you want to scan.

I hope this helps you out.

No parallel port on my computer. USB -parallel


This scanner is an old one so it has only parallel port. You can connect it to any USB with the converter you mentioned and should be working. Did you connect the power supply at the scanner too? It is nesessary for the scanner in order to take power.

Dear Hiraimport,

I have looked for the driver. I found one on the Australian website from Canon. On the USA site there are only drivers for the N650U or higher models.

Here's a link to the N640P Driver and software:

Let me know if this helped you.

Greetings,
