Thanks for your help. I have looked at the site you suggested, but can't see a driver that refers to paperlite or Esselte who marketed it. Is it that Xerox made this scanner - if so how do I work out which is the one I need. thanks, Mike

I have many years experience repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion for you.
When was the last time you went to Canon's official website? Just google Canon CanoScanLide 30 drivers when the page pops up go to Canons official site Im sure since Windows 7 has been out for a while now they should have a driver available. If not my next suggestion is to contact them directly via email and ask for the latest driver or even a beta driver if they are still working on getting a driver out for your scanner.
I do not see this scanner on the Epson support site. They may not have a Win7 driver. You could try an XP driver in the compatability mode (right click on the driver and select Properties and the Compatability tab. Check the box next to Run in compatability mode) You can download a driver from a site like this one, http://download.cnet.com/EPSON-GT-7000/3000-2118_4-73143.html .
Another possibility is available in Win7 Pro and Ultimate. Download and install the XP mode from Microsoft. Install the scanner in the virtual XP computer. You may need to save files to external media to transfer them between the two computers.
Try the scanner on another USB port first. IE8 should have nothing to do with your scanner. It is possible that your drivers got corrupted. Right click MY COMPUTER, go to PROPERTIES, then click on DEVICE MANAGER. look for any yellow exclamation or question marks. If there click on it and look at the drivers. There are options to ROLL BACK, UPDATE, UNINSTALL. If drivers are needed use your install disk or go to the Canon site and download the drivers and re-install them. Worst case scenario, connect the scanner to another computer to see if there is still a problem. If so, it is the scanner not IE8 or the computer. Good luck and I hope this helps. Please remember to vote if this was helpful in any way. Thanks.

I understand that you are unable to connect the scanner to Windows 7 computer.
I can imagine the inconvenience you have experienced. I will definitely help you with this.
id suggest look up in your scanner devices, which came with vista or windows and there are certain drivers built in, because i know i used to be able to use my scanner with either the miroscan scanner or the twain driver just see if your system needs the drivers updated by going my computer, properties and then hardware software i hink, look up in there if you have the proper drivers in your system if not go to download drivers and dowload the driver you want you may have to sign up thats all
