TWAIN ERROR AND CANOSCAN LIDE 20 SCANNER PROBLEMS

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? Windows XP doesn't recognize the scanner and doesn't find a driver over the web.

Select your operating system and download the driver "TWAIN Driver - LiDE 20 Scanner Driver Ver. 7.0.3.1a_xp" and then download the software "Canoscan toolbox" ...here is the link:

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:

Canoscan Lide 30 - want to use on laptop running XP Pro


Did you restart your computer after you downloaded your drivers and software? Did you select the correct operating system? Make sure the USB cable is plugged into the computer and the scanner...Open the toolbox and click scan or save and check to see if the scanner makes any noise or lights up...If you are using Windows XP then make sure you have downloaded the "TWAIN" driver and the "WIA" driver (two seperate downloads)

Canoscan does not work on vista 64-bit


I'm not sure if this will work on the lide 20. I have an lide 35, and there are no 64 bit drivers for it. I downloaded and installed the drivers for the lide 60, told the computer to manually find the lide 60 drivers for my scanner, and installed the canoscan toolbox for vista 64 bit. Works like a champ.

Canon scanner


TWAIN is the type of scanner driver that is used for this scanner. It is probably the most common type of scanning driver.

Did you install Toolbox? Not sure? Assuming this is Windows, click Start, All Programs, Canon. Look for open CanoScan Toolbox (4.9 I think). Once this is open, click the 'Settings' button. There should be a drop-down menu for 'Select Scanner'. Make sure this shows the CanoScan LiDE 25. If that scanner is not listed, then the scanner driver is not being seen or may not be installed.

Once it has been verified that the LiDE 25 is selected, click OK. Next, click the 'Save' button. Check the box for 'Display the Scanner Driver'. Now click the 'Scan' button at the bottom.
The next window that pops up should be ScanGear. If this happens, then everything is installed and the scanner is being detected properly. Attempt to scan or preview.

If there was a particular application you were trying to use and you are still having issues with it, please give those details.

Twain error


Buy a new scanner that doesn't say 'Canon' on it anywhere. Mine's useless too, for the same reason. Canon don't want to know about it. Berty

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
