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 <>

Why won't Minolta film Scanner work with iMac and OSX 10.6.2?

I bought a secondhand, nearly new Minolta Dimage Scan Elite 5400 a few years ago but never tried to use it until now when I tried to get it to work with my iMac running OSX 10.6.2. I uploaded the Dimage software but I cannot get it to recognise the scanner - any suggestions? Do I need to get updated drivers?

Canon lide35 won't work on new windows 7 computer despite downloading driver from Canon website, any ideas ?

Assuming you downloaded the driver from this page on Canon's website , try also downloading the latest CanoScan toolbox software if you haven't already done so. Also, if that doesn't work. Try going to the Device Manager (Start Menu > Control Panel > System > Device Manger (on left side of screen)), right click on the scanner driver and then left click on uninstall. Try reinstalling the driver to see if it takes the second time around. Use the latest driver available (most likely from the above page if that's not what you downloaded before). Let me know how you make out.

Won't scan document to my mac os x

Try a program for scanning into Mac OSX called VueScan, not the best but the only one I got working. But it does have some bugs. HP says they do not support this printer anymore for OSX, so that means no new drivers. Probably going to have to buy a new one that works flawlessly with OSX though.
Good luck...
