SOURCE: Downloading software (Twain??)

The download website for your scanner is here:

A TWAIN driver is simply a generic scanner software driver that your specific Canon software can hook into and use.

I recommend starting with this one and see if it installs the TWAIN driver you need:

"CanoScan Toolbox v2.2.3 for Windows 98/Me/2000/XP"

SOURCE: twain error

Try using the original USB cable that came with the scanner. I swear it worked for me, even though it doesn't make sense (although I suppose there is increased resistance, thus less power going to the scanner by using a longer and/or different USB cable than the one included). Give it a try.

SOURCE: Error message

Hi toolpusher

Try going to CanoScan Toolbox > Settings and reset the 'defaults' button at bottom... this will restore factory settings and hopefully fix your problem... The other error message you can expect to get is "unable to scan - insufficent memory, check your **** space' (or something similar)... same fix works for both! ...Have had both messages on mine, sounds like a semi-regular conflict on some sort, but seems to be easily fixed. Good luck :-)

SOURCE: TWAIN ERROR AND CANOSCAN LIDE 20 SCANNER PROBLEMS

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:

This scanner does not have a driver that is supported in windows 7. You could try to install windows XP mode in windows 7, and install it from there, drivers for windows xp is available from canons homepage.

Can not find win 7 canonscan driver


I am sorry my dear friend but there is no windows 7 driver for Canon CanoScan FB636U Flatbed Scanner. If you really wanted to use your scanner you have to downgrade your operating system. This scanner supports the following operating systems.

Windows XP Windows 2000 Windows 98 Windows ME Windows 98 SE Mac OS X Mac OS 9.x

Hi,

You will need to install the twain driver for the scanner.
Click on the link below and download the driver. Once its downloaded execute the .exe file. you will then get a small box pop up with "Unzip" on the right hand side. Look at the path of the unzipped file on the left hand side and save it to your desktop. For example C:\users\yourname\desktop instead of C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local\Temp. The file extracts quite fast so go to the desktop and run the SETUPSG.EXE file. When its installed you should be able to use the scanner.

Make sure you have downloaded both the TWAIN driver and VIA driver (two separate driver downloads) and then download the Canon Toolbox software and restart the computer with the USB cable plugged into your USB port
