I installed the new Canon LiDE 110 scanner drivers. When I click on the Scan button, it gives the error msg: Cannot Communicate with scanner. Cable may be disconnected. Scanner driver will be closed


I was getting that same error message, every second time I tried to scan something. I had the scanner connected to a USB 3.0 jack. I switched to USB 2.0 jack, and the problem was solved.

Trying to download a driver for primefilm 1800u


The drivers it needs are in Windows\system32\drivers and include usbscan.sys and 2 others. I discovered that I had to run the device troubleshooter until it came across the single image scanner, I let it install drivers and then it worked with the primefilm software. That took hours, but the solution was to let Windows 7 64 bit do a troubleshoot on the hardware.

SCSI to USB conversion for Film Scanner


SCSI to USB converters are available, but I doubt they will be of much help for you, you'd still need a special driver for your scanner.
Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate support "XP Mode", essentially a Windows XP environment running in a virtual machine. I'd try to get the SCSI interface card and scanner to run inside the VM as a workaround.
