Question about Canon CanoScan N656U Flatbed Scanner

3 Answers

Downloading software (Twain??)

Have been using my N656U without problems on my Dell desktop.

Three years ago bought a Dell notebook and began using the desktop and scanner less and less.

Today decided to hook the N656U up to my notebook. No dice. When I went to load the softwarfe disk a msg indicated I needed to load Twain first in order to use the scanner.

Don't remenber any Twain, except that good ole boy, Mark

Appreciate any help in locating Twain.

The download website for your scanner is here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=8008

A TWAIN driver is simply a generic scanner software driver that your specific Canon software can hook into and use.

I recommend starting with this one and see if it installs the TWAIN driver you need:

"CanoScan Toolbox v2.2.3 for Windows 98/Me/2000/XP"

I bought this DELL D600 about 3 years ago for my fiancee, now my wife of 1 year, and have had a lot of problems with it


it is HIGHLY doubtful that your internet speed is faster than 54Mbps, and would be little difference in performance.....

Especially given that most webmasters throttle their websites to around 3Mbps. If the website your're trying to load is only sending it @ 3Mbps, then both cards should load it similarly.

Your difference is FAR more likely in the DRIVER(s) being used, (or attempted, but not properly removed.)

Trying to install d660u software wont install coz needs another program called twain


Hi Joaquin,

Have you tried downloading the drivers/software for your flatbed scanner on the canon website? If your using the disk that came with the device, there is a great chance that it's cirrupted that's why it's prompting you for the CS-U twain driver.

I dont know which driver to use for my inbuilt wireless card


Hi,
I,d suggest trying this link.
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_6000&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
and downloading the broadcom diagnostics utility, this will determine your card type. if this does,nt work for you. download them all, put them in a folder on your desktop.go to the device manager and click on the device/update driver. and search desktop folder, for the updated driver.
once this operation is completed succesfully, it would pay you to backup all of your device drivers, for future reference.
Regards Mike @ Compurepair.

Canon Scanner - Twain Pilot


QUICK ANSWER: use the original USB cable that came with the scanner.

LONG EXPLANATION:
Using Vista (32 bit version) and a Canon N670U scanner with the new drivers installed from the CanonUSA website. This driver is works for Canon scanners: LiDE 20, LiDE 30, N670U, N676U and N1240U, found at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=235&modelid=6625

Canon says it doesn't support Vista 64 bit version. I couldn't get the scanner to work and kept getting the TWAIN error also, despite uninstalling / reinstalling the driver. Finally, decided to disconnect my 3rd party 16 foot USB cable and use the original cable. I swear, it WORKED! I can't explain why, but it did. Perhaps there is increased resistance, hence reduced power going to the scanner by using longer/different USB cable? Anyhow, it worked...go figure. If you have the 64 bit version of Vista, I guess it won't work(?).

"Unable to open TWAIN server" Please assist


track down the twain driver for that scanner.. thats the box that opens when you scan... google for the company, download the driver.. re-install tadahh.
Still no luck? manually remove the old one.. use search to finfd the twain folder in your windows system (prob twain32) then re-install.
Still no luck? Scanner has died.
