Epson S-50/XP-Pro/ twain-approved application will fire the scanner to feed the documents, scan the documents, but will not allow the application's captured-preview window to open.


try using free irfanview and acquire the scanning from there and save or edit the output, once installed just select file, then select twain source and your scanner will be there. Much easier option than scanner software

AFTER LOADING SOFTWARE I COMPLETED THE TEST, IT THAT OK BUT WHEN I TRY TO SCAN, PRINT COPY OR ANYHING IT TELLS ME UNABLE TO CONNECT TWAIN SOURCE


Hello.

Give this a try (found online):

Download Irfanview:

http://download.cnet.com/IrfanView/3000-2192_4-10021962.html

Open the main app "i_view32.exe"

With the scanner hooked up, click onto the "file" (tab)

Click "Select TWAIN Source .." and select your scanner in the source box (if it is listed, the driver is functioning)

Click file (tab) then "Acquire"


Hope this helps.

When i try to scan i get this message: unable to open TWAIN source Please check connection then re-start Toolbox the connections are tight


Driver mismatch - the driver of the scanner has forgotten the location of the TWAIN driver because another software has been using it lately. Follow this

When i am going to scan at that time in the screen select the twin source. what is the twin source of canon canoscanlide25


Hello,

The prompt is probably asking you for the TWAIN source to use. In that box, simply select the Canon TWAIN source. If one isn't present, install the TWAIN drivers for this scanner.

Hope that helps,

Hi,

You will need to install the twain driver for the scanner.
Click on the link below and download the driver. Once its downloaded execute the .exe file. you will then get a small box pop up with "Unzip" on the right hand side. Look at the path of the unzipped file on the left hand side and save it to your desktop. For example C:\users\yourname\desktop instead of C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local\Temp. The file extracts quite fast so go to the desktop and run the SETUPSG.EXE file. When its installed you should be able to use the scanner.

I have HP Officejet J3680 All in one I wanted to scan a document but it is saying there is not option..


canning functionality from the LJ3380 and CLJ2840 series All-in-One devices may not function until the correct Twain Data Source is selected by the user. This can be done by attempting to scan from the foundation scan executable "hppscan2.exe ".
  • For the LJ3380 series this is located in C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\LJ3015_LJ3020_LJ3030_LJ3380->hppscan2.exe
  • For the CLJ2840 this is found in C:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\bin->hppscan2.exe
When the "hppscan2.exe " is launched from this location where it resides, a dialog box will open with a "Select Source " box listing the installed Twain scanning devices available. If this box is not seen, then there is only one Twain device installed. In some instances user input is needed to chose the "correct" Twain data source for scanning to be successful from the LJ3380 and CLJ2840 series devices. If the incorrect Twain data source is selected- an error "Cannot initialize device " will be seen.

Error message cannot find twain source and toolbox


Have you tried deleting the scanner from add/remove hardware under control panel? If not, try disconnecting it from the computer, then try deleting it, then retry the install one more time.

I have a Canon scanner 5000f. All of a sudden the computer won't recognize it and says it is "unable to select Twain Source." What do I do?


First you need to follow the instructions for installing the scanner. It is important whether you connect the scanner before the software is installed and whether you work from the new hardware found box or just install the driver as software. It sometimes varies between operating systems as well.

Sometimes the twain files can become corrupted. Since other devices like digital cameras use the twain files they aren’t erased with a driver uninstall or overwritten with an install. If the twain files are gone the driver install will also install them.

Uninstall ScanGear (I think that is the Canon driver software) and remove the scanner if it is still showing in device manager and control panel under scanners. Unplug the USB.
Do a search for twain and delete all you find in the Windows folder. There is probably a folder and several files – delete them all. Do not remove any twain files not in the Windows folder.
Dig out the instructions and reinstall the scanner exactly according to them.
