Why can I not run my Lide 500F scanner with a Windows 7 PC?

I have a cannon flat scanner 2000 & I came across this once before, I uninstalled all the cannon drivers then re-started the PC & next instead of using the Cannon drivers, I used Microsoft's Drivers & it's worked fine ever since.
I hope this works for yourself as well. Best Wishes. Malcolm.

The driver is trying to open your chosen 'image edit' (application) software (MS Paint, PhotoShop, Panintshop Pro or whatever), BUT you have uninstalled it, moved it or not chosen one ....

Go into the Control Panel, Scanners & Cameras, choose the LIDE scan driver right click for 'properties', Events tab, Select an Event pull down = 'scan start button' (or whatever) and select (browse to) your image edit package ..

My Cannon Lide 90 only scans one document. try to do another it says ''the scanner is not available when in use by another application or user'' I close it all out, try again & same thing. I removed...

Check your hard drive space and system RAM requirements. Often this happens because there is not enough "Scratch Pad" space..OR RAM these days 4GB is too small sometimes.

Installing CanoScan Lide 20 / Lide 30 into Mac OS X 10.5.5

I found this scanner at a garage sale today, and had trouble finding this info myself. Finally stumbled upon this site ( )

I'm using it on a Powermac G5 but both the driver and toolbox app say they are univeral binary. Hopefully this gets you up and running too:

CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OS X 10.5
This technical help may seem completely out of place on this art blog but after scouring the internet for 3 hours trying to set my 6 year old scanner up on my new MacBook, I found this info half way down a lengthy comments section of a random blog. So I thought I'd post it here (slightly altered) as a message in a bottle to anyone else in need of it.

How to set up CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OSX 10.5
Select MAC OS X
Download BOTH:
LiDE 20/LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver.
(Mac OS X)

CanoScan Toolbox Ver.
(Mac OS X)

INSTALL CanoScan Toolbox Ver.
INSTALL LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver. . Make sure Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins is selected as the install location.
You will be asked to RESTART. You should.
When you run CanoScan you can choose Photoshop as the default program to open the image in once it has scanned. You do not need Photoshop to open using Rosetta for this to work.
NOTE: If you want to scan directly from within Photoshop CS3, you need to copy the driver 'ScanGear CS 7.0X' which is found in Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins into the photoshop pluggins folder, Applications> Adobe Photoshop CS3>Plug-Ins>Import/Export. You also need to open photoshop in Rosetta mode. Apple + I on the photoshop icon and select 'Open using Rosetta'. I would not recommend using this method though.
Go to System Preferences>Accounts>Login Items and remove both of the following:

Problems in using it

I ran into a similar problem with my LiDE 20 right after I upgraded my Adobe Reader from version 8.0 to version 9.0. Under the "Link scanned images to" section, the path was still pointing to the old version of Adobe Reader. To fix it, I clicked the "Set..." button and selected the appropriate path to the new version of Adobe Reader. You can also try clicking the "Link Deletion" button if you just want the file to be saved without displaying the image after scanning.
