Re: I have a CanoScan 5200F

Because the slides are see through which means you will need a special add on for the scanner for it to support slides. If you have this already then make sure that it is fitted on properly so no light can get in the compartment where the slides are held during the scan

Can I scan slides with Canoscan LiDE600F

Yep, The Canoscan LiDE600F is capable of scanning slides, however it is not possible to scan them in their mounts. If you dismount the slide, you can scan them using the film strip holder. This is not an elegant solution and you would have to remount your slides to use them as originally intended.

I cannot use my canoscan 5200F with my ny PC running Windows7. Where can I get a new driver?

Try the following URL: Use the drop down menu to select your language and OS or scroll down to the appropriate version.

That gives the drivers only if I read it correctly. You should be able to use either Windows Fax and Scan or Paint to actually acquire the scans. If you want the Toolbox, you can try to see if the Vista version will load.

I hope this helps.

Will not scan photos, only slides

Where are you scanning from? Do you get an error? If scanning from Toolbox, check the box that says to use ScanGear or use the Scanner driver. Then make sure it is not set for Film as the select source.

Scanning Film

Have you used this scanner on Leopard already? I didn't think this scanner was supported.

Do a search on "Leopard". The CanoScan 5000F is not supported in this OS.
