Have you tried deleting the scanner from add/remove hardware under control panel? If not, try disconnecting it from the computer, then try deleting it, then retry the install one more time.

I have a Canon scanner 5000f. All of a sudden the computer won't recognize it and says it is "unable to select Twain Source." What do I do?

First you need to follow the instructions for installing the scanner. It is important whether you connect the scanner before the software is installed and whether you work from the new hardware found box or just install the driver as software. It sometimes varies between operating systems as well.

Sometimes the twain files can become corrupted. Since other devices like digital cameras use the twain files they aren’t erased with a driver uninstall or overwritten with an install. If the twain files are gone the driver install will also install them.

Uninstall ScanGear (I think that is the Canon driver software) and remove the scanner if it is still showing in device manager and control panel under scanners. Unplug the USB.
Do a search for twain and delete all you find in the Windows folder. There is probably a folder and several files – delete them all. Do not remove any twain files not in the Windows folder.
Dig out the instructions and reinstall the scanner exactly according to them.

Canon 8400F Scanner keeps returning ERROR: release lock switch, detach I/F cable and reconnect. The lock switch IS in the unlocked position, but scanner will not scan.

Have exact same problem on a Canon scanner (N1220U) which is several years old. Suggest you uninstall the driver software and reinstall it. I did and my scanner is scanning fine again.

Canon Scanner - Twain Pilot

QUICK ANSWER: use the original USB cable that came with the scanner.

LONG EXPLANATION:
Using Vista (32 bit version) and a Canon N670U scanner with the new drivers installed from the CanonUSA website. This driver is works for Canon scanners: LiDE 20, LiDE 30, N670U, N676U and N1240U, found at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=235&modelid=6625

Canon says it doesn't support Vista 64 bit version. I couldn't get the scanner to work and kept getting the TWAIN error also, despite uninstalling / reinstalling the driver. Finally, decided to disconnect my 3rd party 16 foot USB cable and use the original cable. I swear, it WORKED! I can't explain why, but it did. Perhaps there is increased resistance, hence reduced power going to the scanner by using longer/different USB cable? Anyhow, it worked...go figure. If you have the 64 bit version of Vista, I guess it won't work(?).

TWAIN message

Hello,

The Twain error message sounds like a Windows error... I wonder if the software you are trying to use is for Windows, and not MAC.
