Scanner not ready insert film

I am running windows 7 64 bit pro. And my scanner appears to have stopped working. It is recognised as being there but I am told that the scanner is not ready and to insert film. I have tried to do this but nothing happens. It will not load the film. Neither will it scan a slide. I am again told that the scanner is not ready. Everything was fine when I used the scanner the last time. I am using the latest version of vuescan to run the scanner. Any idea?

SOURCE: No option to scan Film Negatives

In order to see these options, you must have the Film Adapter Unit (FAU) attached to the scanner. The FAU is designed to scan in 35mm film, either positive or negative. The scanner has no options to scan in mounted 35mm slides.

Does the scanner work for scanning at all? If not, you may have a communication problem between the computer and the scanner, i.e., the computer doesn't know how the scanner is configured so it doesn't show the options. If it's a communication problem, check for any other USB devices that might interfere with communication. Especially, some printers seem to take over communications. Try disconnecting all other USB devices (except keyboard, mouse, etc.), reboot, and see if the situation corrects itself.

Also, try the online troubleshooting database for this model at this link.

SOURCE: Cannon 4400F Scanner

I had the same problem with about 1 out of every 16 slides when I first got the scanner. The only way I found around it was to rearrange the slides and try again. I started scanning through the ScanGear software instead of Canon Toolbox, and haven't had that problem since. I've scanned about 6,000 slides and negatives so far.

I have a Coolscan IV with the coolscan 3 Software, and i have a mac book pro. The following message appears: Error "Could not send look up tables to scanner.", Please help me


Try upgrading to v4.02 driver. You may need to download 4.0 first as 4.02 may only upgrade from 4.0. The scanner runs with v4.02 on my Mackbook pro but I can only scan using the slide adapter and the film holder at present. The film adapter will not work but i'm not sure if this is a hardware or software problem.

Computer does not recognise scanner


look on your cd (do a windows search function) for files named "...something.MSI". Right click on this file and select either the "INSTALL" or the "RUN" utility. this should force the driver install.
