Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 30 Flatbed Scanner
I have a CanoScan LiDe 30 attached to my intel core duo Mac using OSX 10.4.9. I downloaded and installed the latest driver, ScanGear CS 7.2.5, but I get this error message: "Cannot Communicate with scanner. Cable may be disconnected. Check status. Scanner driver will be closed. The cable is connected. I'd appreciate any suggestions.
Uninstall the software with scanner unplug from your MAC. Install the software with the scanner disconnected, then connect it b4 the first use of the software.

FIRST PART: DELETING OLD LiDE DRIVERS AND SOFTWARE
HD:/Library/Image Capture/Twain Data Sources

(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.)

SECOND PART: MAKING YOUR SCANNER WORK
CanoScan LiDE 50 and LiDE 35 work both with the 35 driver:
CanoScan LiDE 60 driver:
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.
