Question about Canon CanoScan 9900F Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

TWAIN message Using the Arcsoft Photostudio software that came with the Canoscan setup CD originally (I think), I keep getting a message when I try to acquire that says "No TWAIN library in your system!" So I can't use the scanner. To fill out this picture: I had the scanner set up on a Mac G-5 and it was working fine with the Arcsoft Photostudio. Then I got a new iMac and reinstalled the Canon software from the CD. But then I tried the Photostudio application and it gave me this stupid TWAIN message. Is a plug-in missing somewhere? Should I just get different software to use with the scanner? I've reinstalled the scanner software from the disk AND from the downloaded version, and it still doesn't help me at all with actually USING the scanner.

Re: TWAIN message


The Twain error message sounds like a Windows error... I wonder if the software you are trying to use is for Windows, and not MAC.

Distorted photos with Canon Scanner & ArcSoft Photo Studio

I'm assuming that this is only occurring in ArcSoft PhotoStudio? You may need to install an application that is more up today and compatible with Vista. I don't know if that version of PhotoStudio is compatible. You should check with ArcSoft. There is a patch for the 2000 version of PhotoStudio...but again, I don't know if PhotoStudio 2000 is Vista Compatible.
