Question about Canon CanoScan 9900F Flatbed Scanner

Reinstalling driver and using CanoScan

I have a new iMac with OSX.5.1 I want to use my CanoScan 9900F. I reinstalled the driver. But how do I use the scanner? Do I have to use it via the Arcsoft PhotoStudio (which will not work due to a TWAIN error message--another problem)? Can I use the scanner via Photoshop? How? I'm fairly computer savvy but can't figure out this very simple thing! HOW DO I USE THE SCANNER?

    Yup, have exactly the same problem. Photoshop CS3 won't recognise Cannon's plugin for this printer.

    I had the same problem. After upgrading to Leopard, my CanoScan 9900F would not show up in Photoshop CS. I downloaded the driver and reinstalled the plug-in, but it crashed Photoshop every time I tried to save the scanned image. I finally found a work around by purchasing VueScan <>

I am trying to connect my Canoscan 9900F to my Mac OS X 10.6.6 and the driver (is there one?) will not download although it says there is one on the website. The only thing I get is the toolbox.

You can download all the necessary software at this link. Pay close attention to the install and download instructions. These are dmg files and will self install on the Mac. Make sure to choose the right OSX version (Leopard, Snow Leopard, etc) I am a MAC user and tried the download and setup. It worked perfectly!

I have just installed Windows 7 and cannot get my Canon 9900f scanner to connect - it was previously installed with Windows XP. How can I obtain the correct Windows 7 software?

You have to go the the Canon website, follow links for support and downloads. You may have to enter details of your operating system and Scanner model as you go. You're looking for Win 7 drivers.

Canoscan 9900F isn't recognized by any of my Mac software

you could try looking in system profiler, to see if the scanner is even recognised by the system - if not it's a connection problem.

try connecting via firewire instead of USB (or vice versa)

otherwise, see if vuescan recognises the scanner.

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.
