Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 Flatbed Scanner
I have a Windows XP computer, and I'm trying to install a CanoScan Lide 20 Flatbed scanner on it, but it keeps saying there's a Twain error and it can't recognize the scanner. What should I do?
Well I had a code 15 error with mine LIDE 20. Apparently the scanner needs a certain amount of power to run off the USB port. So I changed the USB port and problem fixed

I had the same problem more than 1 year ago and then found the solution (at least in my case that is) somewhere on the internet. Since I have the same problem with a new computer I searched the internet once more, but did not find the solution. However, last time I was so clever to write down the solution on the disk of my old laptop. The laptop is gone, but not the disk, so I could access it by putting it in an USB enclosure and was able to find the solution once again. Here it is:
c:WINDOWS wain_32CNQLxx (xx is the number of your scanner) should be included in the PATH environmental variable.
Now I know where to look for I found the link where I found it first:

I have installed the software for canoscan lide20 but i am unable to scan. firstly, when i start scanning from the computer it shows "WIA DRIVERS IS REQUIRED" . Secondly, when i scan directly from the scanner than it shows registration required

I'm sorry to say that it seems that there is no easy solution to your canner's problem. After searching for a viable solution I came up with:
This is a registry fixer (RegCure) that fixes many problems with the Windows Registry including Twain Scanner Driver errors (see Learn how RegCure fixes your PC section at the link)
I hope this information helps you to solve the problem
Kind regards and thanks for using the FixYa service

I found what worked for me:
1. Open Windows folder
2. Open System32 folder
3. Try to find a file named twain_32.dll and rename it to twain_32old.dll.
Restart computer. BINGO!

Select your operating system and download the driver "TWAIN Driver - LiDE 20 Scanner Driver Ver. 188.8.131.52a_xp" and then download the software "Canoscan toolbox" ...here is the link:
