Lost my CD-ROM

I had to reboot my computer and in the process of installing the copier, I couldn`t find the disk--now what do I do--other than replacing the scanner?

Re: lost my CD-ROM

First I'll assume that by "reboot" you mean you had to "re-install" the operating system on the computer. Simply rebooting the computer doesn't mean you have to re-install the software.

I found the driver page for the Canon N656U scanner here:


You can download the equivalent software that was on the installation CD from there and re-install your software and driver that way.

How to install it in Windows Vista?

sure not hard at all. all you have to do is:

  1. Close all open programs on the computer.
  2. Locate the HP Photo & Imaging software CD-ROM that is appropriate for the language and operating system and insert the CD-ROM disk into the computer.
  3. For a Microsoft(R) Windows computer: Follow the instructions on the screen. Or, if the installation program does not start automatically:
  4. Click Start , then click Run . The Run window will open.
  5. In the Open box type: X:\SETUP.EXE (where x is the letter of the CD-ROM drive).
  6. If the instruction prompts to shut down the computer, do so.
  7. Connect the USB cable between the USB port on the scanner and the USB port on the computer.
  8. Connect the power cable between the scanner and a surge protector or a grounded wall outlet. This turns on the scanner.
  9. If necessary, turn the computer on again.
this product is no longer being supported by HP so here is a link to updated drivers if needed.

Windows goes off with the msg 'NTLDR is missing'

NTLDR errors are usually caused by defective RAM on the motherboard. Try removing one of the RAM sticks on your board and see if computer works fine. If still gets error msg, swap the RAM stick and try again to narrow down which stick is faulty. Sometimes, its simply some corrosion on the RAM contacts which in that case, you only need to re-seat the sticks.

You can find drivers here. Select your OS in the box, then download the standard driver (not the WIA driver). Also download the CanoScan Toolbox listed under Software. Install both to your computer following the instructions.

Download the driver from the Internet directly. Or make a copy of the disk on to another CD or on to a Thumbdrive and install software!
