Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 Flatbed Scanner

4 Answers

Which program do i use to transfer the scanned image too?

I have just been given a canoscan lide 20, i have downloaded the drivers and the canoscan toolbox but now im lost. When I push the SCAN button I get a message that asks me to 'specify the program where the scanned image is transferred'. When you push the OK button a 'select application box' appears with 'Look in Local Disk (C)' This where I become confused..... which program do I select?

    Hi



    Thanks for that. I found a Scansoft paperport programme already installed on my computer. This seems to be working alright, although I keep getting an error message saying 'the file cannot be opened. the file may be damaged or system resources may be low'. However when I open MY Pictures (where I save it to) the document is there and usable. I'll just keep ignoring it!



    Thanks again

    On pressing the "Auto Scan" or "PDF" button, it displays a window to select the program to launch for that action and shows 10 "Photoshop" on selecting and clicking on "OK" it doesn't scan. Is it pre-requisite to have "Photoshop" or is it issue with drivers? Kindly help. Thanks

Hi,

Sounds like the CanoScan is looking for a photo enhancing/utility program. Programs for this purpose are Adobe PhotoShop, PaintShop Pro, ACDSee, or even the simple Windows Paint.

Additionally, the CanoScan Toolbox might have a basic photo utility program. Normally basic photo utility programs like this are included in the CD installer of a scanner, a digicam or even most color printers.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

If you are using the MP Navigator EX 1.0 software to scan, just select the "Save" icon instead of the "Photo-1" or "Photo-2" icons to start the scanning process. That way you can just save the scan directly as a JPG, TIFF, BMP or PDF instead of sending it to a photo application. This trips me up sometimes as it is intuitive to think "I am scanning a photo so I should use one of the photo icons". Just remember you just want to save the file.

    I forgot to mention in my previous post, you can change the PHOTO button to just save in the Preferences menu of the MP Navigator EX 1.0 software (CanoScan 8800F). Just set it to Save instead of Photo-1. Personally I prefer to start the scan from the software though. Hope this helps someone.

I clicked OK, and then selected a JPG image in one of my folders as the selected application.  This seems to stop it from asking for program any more.   JAY.

When I try to scan with my canonscan lide 70 I get a message "specify the program where the scanned image is transferred"


You just need to point the program to where the scanning program was installed. If you just let it auto-load it should be here: (assuming you loaded the free toolbox software)
C:\Program Files\Canon\CanoScan Toolbox Ver5.0\CSTBox.exe
or just look at where the toolbox is installed by searching for the CSTBox.exe file.

Can't copy or scan on canoscan lide 25


You need to install the software drivers You need BOTH programs installed on your PC, Toolbox & Scangear. Also use the driver remover first. Then unplug scanner, reboot, install Scangear first, and toolbox second, then reboot, when at desktop next time, plug in the Scanner. Hopefully it should be all good. Read the Help file. http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010219.asp

Installing CanoScan Lide 20 / Lide 30 into Mac OS X 10.5.5


I found this scanner at a garage sale today, and had trouble finding this info myself. Finally stumbled upon this site ( http://cadwell.livejournal.com/39545.html )

I'm using it on a Powermac G5 but both the driver and toolbox app say they are univeral binary. Hopefully this gets you up and running too:

CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OS X 10.5
This technical help may seem completely out of place on this art blog but after scouring the internet for 3 hours trying to set my 6 year old scanner up on my new MacBook, I found this info half way down a lengthy comments section of a random blog. So I thought I'd post it here (slightly altered) as a message in a bottle to anyone else in need of it.

How to set up CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OSX 10.5
STEP 1:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=6623
STEP 2:
Select MAC OS X
STEP 3:
Download BOTH:
LiDE 20/LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver. 7.0.1.1aX
(Mac OS X)

lide20lide30n670un676un1240uosx7011aen.dmg
CanoScan Toolbox Ver. 4.1.3.0X
(Mac OS X)

CSTb4130MXE.dmg.gz
STEP 4:
INSTALL CanoScan Toolbox Ver. 4.1.3.0X
STEP 5:
INSTALL LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver. 7.0.1.1aX . Make sure Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins is selected as the install location.
STEP 6:
You will be asked to RESTART. You should.
STEP 7:
When you run CanoScan you can choose Photoshop as the default program to open the image in once it has scanned. You do not need Photoshop to open using Rosetta for this to work.
NOTE: If you want to scan directly from within Photoshop CS3, you need to copy the driver 'ScanGear CS 7.0X' which is found in Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins into the photoshop pluggins folder, Applications> Adobe Photoshop CS3>Plug-Ins>Import/Export. You also need to open photoshop in Rosetta mode. Apple + I on the photoshop icon and select 'Open using Rosetta'. I would not recommend using this method though.
STEP 8:
Go to System Preferences>Accounts>Login Items and remove both of the following:
N067U_ButtonManager.app
N124U_ButtonManager.app
STEP 9:
SCAN.
