I need help with scanning on my Epson Stylus CX4200.

Try downloading HPs PhotoSmart

If you have trouble getting PhotoSmart, you can find plenty of scanner software for free

However.... You will need to remove your Epson software from you computer before loading other software.

Check the Epson website for software updates and version capibilitys

When I open HP Scan Pro and attempt to scan a document it tells me the scanner is not found. It is plugged in by USB correctly.

The computer is looking for a "Twain" device. Although the printer is correctly installed, to scan a document or picture, you need a program to associate with the scanner and identify the "Twain" device. To do this, open up any photo software or even MS Paint. Under the File tab there should be an option to Import or Import from a device i.e. camera, scanner. This is the option you want. Select your HP Scan Pro as the Twain device and you can scan from your computer. The other way would be to open HP Imaging software package that came with the machine and configure your scanner from within the program. Either way works its just a matter of preference. Best of luck and reply back with any questions.

You need to download a "Twain Driver and Epson Scan Utility" from
the Epson Website.

But before you start downloading the Twain Driver we need to delete
the previously installed driver in your computer.

1.) Click and open the MAC or Apple Hard drive / Application and trash Epson Scan and Epson Scanner Monitor ( drag it to your trash )
2.) MAC hard drive / Library / Image Capture / Twain Data Source., we need to trash ( *.ds file )
3.) MAC hard drive / Library / Application Support., trash the Epson Scanner Module
4.) Disconnect the connection ( USB ) between the printer and your MAC.
5. ) Empty your Trash bin and restart your MAC

After the restart we can now download and install the Twain driver to your MAC.

After the installation try to launch Epson Scan under Application

1 Answer

Twain drivers

The problem was with the scanner,it was not twain compliant

So the 2 ways left with me was :

1.Download twain drivers for my scanner and install it.

2.Use wia32.dll

I chose second option as i didnt found any twain driver for my scanner.

Hope this can help any one.

The 6180 memory device refers to the removable memory devices that can be loaded into the slots on the front of the machine, not the scanner. Your devices are configured wrong.


The scanner is a TWAIN device and therefore requires a Twain driver. Accessing Twain sources requires you to SELECT SOURCE for your scanning software.


Just un-install, re-boot, then re-install the drivers for the 6180. Make sure to allow the resident software that runs on your PC to run in the background.  HP needs the "ImageMonitor" and other software to run in order to "feed" your scanning software.
