Here is the link to download the drivers you need for the OpticPro u12 Scanner. Just donload the right drivers for your computer operating system( Window 98, 2000, or Xp) then install. There is also a patch that you will need to download and install after you install the driver. This will fix your problem

I need to buy a cd to install

Go to Canon's website. They should have a site for Software downloads. Trusting they do, when you go to download it and it asks you if you want to Run it or Save it, you'll want to save it. Then burn the software onto a CD.

    Unpack your new scanner and set it up. Follow package directions and setup instructions to assemble any parts that need assembly.

  • 2

    Plug in your scanner and power it up.

  • 3

    Insert the setup CD in your CD-ROM or DVD drive. It should autotomatically run. If it doesn't, click on "My Computer" and then on the CD or DVD drive to open the CD. Look for a Setup.exe file. Double-click on it to launch the setup disk.

  • 4

    Follow the onscreen prompts to complete the end-user agreement and install the necessary drivers and software to run your new scanner.

  • 5

    When prompted, connect the USB cable to the scanner, then plug the other end into the USB port on your desktop PC.

  • 6

    Windows will recognize that a new device is available on your computer, and find the necessary software and drivers to install it.

  • 7

    Restart your PC if prompted to do so.

  • 1

    Check all cable connections to be sure that they are secure.

  • 2

    Disconnect the USB cable from the desktop and the scanner.

  • 3

    Turn off your computer and let it cool down for 10 minutes.

  • 4

    Turn the computer on, then turn the scanner on. Reconnect the USB cable to the scanner. Try connecting the other end of the USB cable to a different port on your computer.

    If none of these suggestions solve your problem, uninstall the scanner and start over.

    Unable to install scanner

    Cant find such a scanner, are you sure of the model "performance", If it is not Vista compatable, ie if Epson have not released a Vista driver, then it is not going to work with Vista.

    See Epson web and download driver if available, if not change scanner or operating system or purchase software

    Check your Epson product CD to see if it already contains Windows Vista drivers. If the CD indicates support for Windows Vista, follow the instructions that came with your Epson product to install your driver and other software.

    If your Epson CD does not indicate support for Windows Vista, DO NOT INSERT YOUR EPSON PRODUCT SOFTWARE CD IN YOUR WINDOWS VISTA COMPUTER because the setup program is not compatible with Windows Vista. Instructions for installing additional software from your CD may be available with your driver download.

    Note: If you already have ArcSoft PhotoImpression™ 5 installed on your Windows Vista computer, you may need to install a "patch" program. Go to the ArcSoft website to download and install the patch.

    Products that are not Vista compatable are not capatable with Vista, who would figure hey!!
