Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 30 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Vista and the toolbox don't seem to work together

I installed the toolbox when I upgraded to Vista, but the application just hangs. I downloaded the driver and the toolbox from the canon web site. As soon as I click on copy, the scanner makes a bit of noise (sounds like it is getting ready to go) and then the application hangs. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    I installed the Canoscan toolbox 4.1 on my new Compaq Presario Vista Home Premium machine and the vista driver from canon for my LIDE 30 scanner, but the scanner doesn't show up under settings and no scanner is found when I try to scan. If anyone knows how to fix this, please help!

    installed my old Canon LIDE30 flatbed scanner on a new Compaq Presario SR5610f desktop running Windows Vista Home Ultimate. It appears to install correctly (used the newest drivers from canon.com - lide20lide30n670un676un1240uvst7031a_xpen.exe). The problem is that no matter what application I use to access it, whether it's CanoScan Toolbox 4.1.3.6 or any other application that supports TWAIN drivers, all it ever does is make a few noises as if it's going to scan and then hang whatever application is trying to access it. It worked fine under Windows XP, and Canon says that it's supported under Windows Vista with the new drivers, but it sure won't work for me. I already uninstalled the driver, rebooted, and reinstalled the drivers many times with no improvement.

    Bought a new computer with Vista preinstalled and like the others in this section cannot get my Canoscan LiDE 30 to get beyond a couple of what I can only describe as "resetting" movements and then it hangs. . . this also applies to the scanner part of the HP Colour Laserjet CM1017 (no movement, just doesn't recognise the pc . . any help would be gratefully received . . regards Cocoscot

Lide 60 not working in mountain lion


Guide to installing Canon CanoScan LiDE 35, 50 and 60 on Mac OS X 10.8. Mountain Lion:


FIRST PART: DELETING OLD LiDE DRIVERS AND SOFTWARE


  • If this is the first attempt to install the scanner, skip this part


  • Trash the following files/folders from these folders:


HD:/Library/Image Capture/Twain Data Sources

delete the CanoScan CanoScan XXXX.ds file

(Make note of any other files that may be in this folder. If other files are present, move them to the desktop for now. Then place them back after successfully using the scanner.)


HD:/Library/Preferences

delete the 'CanoScan XXXX' folder


HD:/Users/Shared

delete the folders containing the name CanoScan, or starting with CNQL.


HD:/Applications

delete the CanoScan Toolbox Application


HD:/Users/YOUR-MAC-USERNAME/Library/Preferences

delete any items named "CanoScan Toolbox"


  • Restart your computer, then empty the trash


SECOND PART: MAKING YOUR SCANNER WORK


  • Make sure your scanner is well connected


  • Download the right driver depending on your Model. Also download the Scanner Software. Copy the filenames and search them via Google. Make sure you download the Canon files from an official Canon domain.


CanoScan LiDE 50 and LiDE 35 work both with the 35 driver:

lide35osx7721en.dmg


CanoScan LiDE 60 driver:

lide60osx11131en.dmg


VueScan Software:

http://www.hamrick.com/#download

VueScan 9.2 (or later) x32 for Mac OS X


Alternative to VueScan: CanoScan Toolbox. I prefer VueScan.

Try your luck with Version 4 or Version 5.

CanoScan Toolbox 4: cstbosx4934ej4.dmg

CanoScan Toolbox 5: cstbosx5014ej4.dmg


  • Open the downloaded driver file (lide35osx7721en.dmg or lide60osx11131en.dmg)


  • and Double-click the ScanGear file, install and restart when prompted


  • Open the downloaded VueScan file (vuex3292.dmg) and drag the VueScan application to the Mac Applications folder


  • Open the VueScan application. The scanner should be recognized automatically.


(Alternatively try and install CanoScan Toolbox 4 or 5)

How to get the aeroglass look on none WDDM supported graphics card


Many people have upgraded their computer operating systems from XP to Vista or Windows 7 but their graphics cards don't support the aeroglass effect.
This is because the graphics cards don't support the WDDM drivers so the look of the operating system just looks basic.

There are a couple of little applications which can make the operating system look like it has the aeroglass effect even though its quite basic. Even though the look is quite basic it still looks good enough to have a desirable effect.

If you have seen Windows 7 or Vista which has the aeroglass effect enabled then you will have noticed that you can see through the borders of the windows and taskbar itself.

To achive these looks there are two little applications which you have to download and install.

The first one is True Transparency. This will make the borders of windows transparent.

Download True Transparency from here and install it >>>>>>>>>





http://truetransparency.en.softonic.com/





Take a look at the screenshot below to see how it looks. I'm running this application myself on my laptop with Windows 7 installed.
cbd4da7.png

As you can see the windows borders are transparent. To use and change the look click on the notification area and right click on the True Transparency icon like in the picture below.
01766d5.png

Next we have to work on the taskbar. We are fairly limited with what we can do here but we can still have the transparent effect even though we can't change the colour.

What we need to achive this effect is an application called Tweakwindow.

Download and install Tweakwindow from the link below >>>>>>>





http://www.shareup.com/TweakWindow-download-20010.html





To configure Tweakwindow you will find the application in the nitification area just like with True Transparency.


With these little applications you can have the aeroglass effect without having the need to upgrade your graphics cards of install memory hungry applications like WindowBlinds.
WindowBlinds does work with Vista and 7 but tends to slow down the PC dramatically causing application hangs and system freezes.

Both True Transparency and Tweakwindows works on XP, Vista and Windows 7.

Until a registry hack becomes available to force aeroglass on none WDDM graphics cards we are stuck with using these little applications.

When a registry hack becomes available I will update this tip.

Happy computing.

Can't calibrate the scan before scanning


I had the same problem when upgrading to mac os x. I was trying to scan directly from Photoshop but got the calibration message. I tried the two solutions given at the Canon website but they didn't work. I ended up downloading the Toolbox application to scan directly from there but the same message appeared. After installing the Toolbox application I unistalled the driver (11250) and reinstalled it. I opened Photoshop and tried scanning and the calibration window appeared only this time it didn't stop to give me the "Flim Adapter" warning. I must point that the scanner lid was open when this happend but I'm not sure that had anything to do with it.

So apparently it works if you have the Toolbox installed prior to installing the driver. The driver, Toolbox application and unistall driver can be found at Canon's website. Hope this helps.

Ciao!
