Twain driver for CanoScan D660U

I can not get this D660U scanner to scan 35mm film. When it comes to 'preview' it just shuts off, telling me that it can't scan for several reasons...
I have downloaded that last software, but it won't function. Perhaps the twain driver doesn't work properly?
Where can I find a new updated twain-driver?

    The protective cover in the lid is not the problem, - it is removed.

    But scanning 35mm film is impossible. It just stops! I have tried new drivers, downloads etc. - the scanner works great in any other way.

    No, - I am not using the Vista. (XP Home Edition).

    I have the same problems with scanning 35mm film, but I am on a Mac OS X-platform. I have tried downloading the uninstaller i order to get a fresh start with the software, but this one flatly refuses to run at all due to some "library problem".

    I have exactly the same problem. I think it might be XP incompatible with the Filmscan unit. Canon Australia was of no help, they recommend taking it to a service centre

You need to remove the protective cover in the lid to allow the illiminator to shine through the slide

Previews but does not scan

This appears to be a software problem. Run Scandisk/chkdsk on your Computer. Uninstall the driver software, switch off the computer & Reinstall the driver software and try.

Canon scanner

TWAIN is the type of scanner driver that is used for this scanner. It is probably the most common type of scanning driver.

Did you install Toolbox? Not sure? Assuming this is Windows, click Start, All Programs, Canon. Look for open CanoScan Toolbox (4.9 I think). Once this is open, click the 'Settings' button. There should be a drop-down menu for 'Select Scanner'. Make sure this shows the CanoScan LiDE 25. If that scanner is not listed, then the scanner driver is not being seen or may not be installed.

Once it has been verified that the LiDE 25 is selected, click OK. Next, click the 'Save' button. Check the box for 'Display the Scanner Driver'. Now click the 'Scan' button at the bottom.
The next window that pops up should be ScanGear. If this happens, then everything is installed and the scanner is being detected properly. Attempt to scan or preview.

If there was a particular application you were trying to use and you are still having issues with it, please give those details.
