Question about Canon CanoScan 8400F Film Scanner

1 Answer

I was using my Canon 5200F for a few years with no problem. However I deleted this hardware/software by mistake and instal it again from original CD. From that moment I am getting message "unable to select twain source." When I open Canoscan toolbox settings and click select scanner the box is blank. I also tried restor my windows XP for few days earlier however it did not work. What to do?

If the printer works ok ...go to the add new software ..and let it search to see if it finds the scanner as a separate device ...and let it install the driver from the disk ...do the same for the printer ...I suspect that you install the software for it without them drivers and the software to not find the devices..
so ...plug it ...and go to the add new software ...choose already added ..and see what are the results ...
also go to the device manager by right click on my computer ..properties ..hardware ..device manager ...if you can not locate the printer and the scanner in a normal state there are not seen ...if they are with a yellow mark ..they are seen ..but not installed proper..just update driver by right click....
there is a posibility that you upgraded teh software ..and the drivers are not compatible from the disk anymore....you should look fot the right drivers on the net or let me know if this is the case and I will try it for you ...

  1. Turn off the power to the computer.
  2. Insert a steel rod (about 1.3 mm in diameter) into the emergency eject hole and push hard. (A stiff paper clip may be used).
  3. The disc tray is ejected a short distance. Pull it all the way open by hand. roadfox_2.jpg

Why can't I download my CANO SCAN set up CD-Rom on to my new Windows 7


The CD-ROM has the installers for older versions of Windows. The installation routines for the newer versions of Windows have changed considerably from those that were in use when the CD was written. You can get the drivers and Canon Toolbox software for the scanner from Canon: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_lide25#DriversAndSoftware . Select Windows 7 in the dropdown menu. The software will work with any version of Windows 7.

The only exception is that the third-party software is not available for downloads. If you want to use the original CD software (assuming the disc is undamaged) and you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can download and install Virtual PC and XP mode for a free XP virtual computer. Then install the scanner to the "XP computer" as you normally would. However, the virtual computer and the Win7 computer cannot both have the hardware installed simultaneously. So to share files, you may need to save them to external media (optical or hard drive). If you have one of the other versions of Windows 7, you can do the same thing with any virtual PC program and a licensed older version of Windows.

I hope this helps.

5100


Hi,
The first thing you need to do is to go into your Start Menu and select Printer and Faxes and delete any printers you don't use or have and to delete any instances of the 5100 and the MX310. Now go into your Start Menu again and select all programs and uninstall any programs linked to printers you don't have or use, and also the 5100 and the MX310. Now restart your computer. Once your computer is restarted use the CD that came with your printer to re-install the drivers and software. Plug your printer into your computer and Windows should install your printer. If you don't have the original CD I have included a link to the drivers and manuals online for you to download. I hope this solves your problem. Good luck!

Carol.
