canon carascan 5000f driver

Q: canon carascan 5000f driver

Anyone aware of a fix so that windows 7 64 bit can install and use caroscan 5000f flatbed scanner?

A: canon carascan 5000f driver

I just checked here - Film and Negative Scanners - USB Flatbed Scanner - CanoScan 5000F - Canon USA Consumer Products and see there are no Windows 7 drivers for that scanner

You could try Vuescan from Hamrick if you don't find a suitable solution. The software allows you to use your scanner on a 64-bit OS through its program by providing its own 64-bit driver. It usually offers more options and tweaks over the standard software issued with the scanner. The downfall (if you want to call it that) is it will set you back $40.00 for the Standard edition or $80.00 for the Pro edition. There is a 30-day trial version as well.

Hello! I hope this is where this goes, If not I apologize.
I just got a Canon PIXMA Mg5422 and I have already set it up with my router and iPhone and it works just fine. I put the disk in my laptop (HP G60, Windows 7) and everything is fine. I'm a little confused though, the current installation step I'm at is a "Software Installation list". The software that ARE checked is MP drivers, On screen Manual, My printer, My image Garden, Quick Menu, Adobe RGB (1999), and Easy web-print EX. The bottom software is ''XPS driver'' and it is not checked...Do I need to check this or not? I currently don't own a camera to go with the printer (such as a canon) but I do hope to be buying a camera in a few months (not sure on brand). I'm not really sure what XPS driver means. Please help! Thanks.

I uninstalled my Canon iP3000 software, and then when I tried to reinstall it, it got to a stage in the setup process where it asks you to connect the printer to the PC. But where the PC would normally detect a new hardware device, it didn't. My guess is that the driver wasn't uninstalled, although when I look under drivers, I can't see anything under Canon. (I have Windows XP pro). The installation cannot proceed without this, and the computer doesn't detect the printer.

I had originally installed the printer software with Ashampoo, so I used that uninstaller to uninstall, but it seems even that didn't detect everything.

Could anyone offer me some advice?

I notice that there are a number of posting in regards 64-bit drivers for Canon printers but no other posting for the Canon LBP 5100. I purchased this printer around 12 months ago and simply love it, mainly due to the auto duplex that make printing out PDF such an easy task.

I intend building a new computer in the coming months and have more or less decided on installing Windows 7 Home Premium or Pro (Retail) 64-bit. The only major problem I can see with the 64-bit is with the Canon Printer LBP 5100, the canon website shows a 32-bit driver for Vista but no 64-bit versions. Contacting Canon NZ I received a reply stating that as far as they can ascertain there will be no 64-bit drivers for this printer unless Canon Japan decides different.

Questions please: I have been told that Windows 7 will come with a driver for the Canon LBP 5100 but can't find any information in regards this, so my question is does Windows 7 come with a driver for this printer?
If it does will the auto duplex still work?

Anyone knows how to contact Canon Japan (in English) about a 64-bit driver for this printer?

Had anyone that uses this printer come across a work around for a 64-bit driver for this printer.

A:Canon LBP 5100 64-bit Driver

Their is a similar post above yours for the lpb 5000. And from their question I can ascertain that windows 7 doesn't come with a driver for your printer since they can't be theirs to work. Even if W& did cone with a driver it would be a printer driver (just basic ) and most likely wouldn't include the applications needed for duplex. Sorry but after 7 is released on the 22 nd maybe with enough inquiries cannon will get with the program. But from their point of view i assume they would just rather sell you a newer model printer.

Download the Vista driver from Canon. You may have to install it in Compatability Mode.
If you are using Win 7 64bit get the Vista 64bit driver. Win 7 32bit get the Vista 32bit driver.

I've searched this online, but I haven't found a solution that works.

Basically, I have a Canoscan FB 320P Scanner, and no installation disk. I've downloaded the drivers from the Canon website, and a few other places. Anytime I try to scan anything, I get a common error message, that reads, "The parallel port may be used by another application 0x00060800"

I also have an HP Deskjet 695C connected with the scanner.

Then it tells me that it can't find the Twain source, to re-check the connection, and try again, but to no avail.

I want to get it so that at least the scanner shows up in the control panel under installed imaging devices. I tried going into the control panel, and adding a new imaging device. It always searches for an .inf file -- is that what I'm missing? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I bought this printer for a buck at a garage sale. They claimed it worked, but had no ink. I paid around twelve dollars for the ink cartridges on ebay, but forgot to check first to see if Canon had a driver for xp. They don't. However, when I go to microsoft's printer support page, I find that printer listed as one that there are drivers for in xp.

The question is--should I assume Microsoft is correct, or assume that my printer won't work and just get rid of it?

The issue IS that although the Canon supplied driver for the 64 bit Windows 7 OS loads the WIA driver is required for the scanner to operate.  The WIA driver that came with the 4200F is 32 bit and will not load.Contacted Canon support and finally got them to understand the situation.The outcome is that they are sorry for the inconvience - BUT there is no 64 bit WIA available.Looks like the only solution is to purchase a new, compatable, scanner.Canon won't get the business.Thanks to all.

Hi folks,

Her indoors is not happy!!

I have converted her Lenovo laptop into a dual boot (XP/7 32-bit) - the intention being to get everything she uses onto 7 and "convert her" to 7 too

In XP she has been happily using her wireless connected Canon MG6150 and was comfortable with its scanner driver (Scangear).

In 7 I located the printer on the network and Win 7 got the driver for it. The "printer side" of the driver is fine but the "scanner side" is very minimal (it's a WIA rather than TWAIN) and she's not a happy bunny.

Should I remove this printer and start over, using Canon's own software? Bearing in mind that this printer is already wirelessly connected, what's the best procedure - install the software first from Canon's site and then connect the printer? If so, how do I stop it from searching Windows Update for a driver?

Just after some help with the MP780 on 7 x64.

The printer is plugged in via USB to another machine on the network. On the 7 machine I am running through the add printer wizard, which finds the printer and looks for drivers.

The first problem is that it can't find the MP780 drivers on Windows Update, which I think it should.

After it fails there, it asks to find the inf manually. I have downloaded the drivers from the Canon Australia website but that's just an installer. I have also downloaded drivers from other random driver sites but it just gives me fax and scan infs, nothing else.

Any ideas for me?


A:Canon MP780 Driver Issue

OK if you can install this it might work - make sure the driver package is unzippped to a folder - or just select the setup.exe file and do the following if it wont unzip - this resolves an OS mismatch when the driver wont install on w7

To install a driver OR program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista/xp etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.

Driver page v6.20 - to download firstly click on the file, go to nxt page then - under disclaimer is download - select "i have read the instructions etc" then select download -in "red" and then click save

If that doesnt work try installing it thru device manager and pointing to the folder the driver is unzipped to.

It almost sounds like there's a permission problem with using the printer with the laptop. Try going to the printer properties on the machine that the printer's connected to. Go to the Security tab and make sure that your laptop login computer name is there and all of the permissions in the ACL list are checked. You could also try going to Network Neighborhood, go to the computer that has the printer connected and try to connect to the printer through there.

For my printer (Canon MG6150) I can only find a multilanguage driver, and allthough Canon support danish languane, I can only get it to show printer properties and maintenance in English. Anybody knowing a trick to make the driver install the driver so it will be in danish?

Hello, need help!

I have a Windows 7 64-bit PC. I have downloaded the S820 driver from Canon's site, but it keeps failing on me. The PC recognizes the printer, but as an USB device. It won't let me print to it. It only gives me 3 options when I right-click on the printer - Create Shortcut, Troubleshoot, Properties.

I was told the INFCache.1 file was causing issues with USB devices. I went and deleted that file, unplugged the USB plug, reinstalled the driver, plugged it back in. It recreated the INFCache.1 file and it tried to install the printer, but it failed.

I thought it was a compatibility issue, so I tried the XP driver, Vista driver, etc. and none of those worked.

I haven't worked with Windows 7 much, so Windows 7 gurus, please help out a n00b.

Gracias in advance.

After six working days of jumping through hoops, I have finally managed to install a brand new Canon LBP6650dn.

If anyone else is thinking of buying one in the UK, note that

(a) the supplied software disc is only compatible with Win 7 32bit

(b) Canon UK online and telephone support were basically no help and the drivers on the UK site do not work

(c) via a contact in Canon UK, I finally figured out the answer.

What you do is go to Canon U.S.A. : Consumer & Home Office : imageCLASS LBP6650dn
and follow the instructions.

This will install the printer as an "unspecified USB device".

Right click on that, run Windows troubleshooter, and when it tells you that the driver is missing, click on "Fix this problem".

Everything will then be sweetness and light - at least until you try to override the printer defaulting to single-sheet feed. But that's another story (which as yet has no end) ...

Which driver do/did you use? There are 3 there and they all have this note...

Before starting the driver installation, connect only the LAN cable first, do not connect the USB cable at this time.
This is necessary for your printer to acquire IP address automatically before you start the driver installation and enable driver installer function.

I have recently bought a new base unit with Vista Home Premium 64bit installed. I have loaded all the software that came with my Canon 350D camera but Vista says it need to install new divers for a Canon Digital camera when I connect it via USB. It can not find any drivers on the install disc and recommends I install drivers for a "EOS KISS_N REBEL_XT 350D". I have checked the Canon website for the drivers and found no reference to the recommended drivers? I have found update for the software that came with the camera which I have applied but it still says it's found new hardware when I connect the camera.

The current versions of software installed are:

I have been searching several websites, downloaded a lot of junk and tested a great many so called solutions. In spite of all efforts I could not find a working solution for the LBP-1120 on W7 x64.
Although I guess most LBP-1120 users got tired of searching and simlpy threw away their printer, I refuse to do that. So I'm running it on Virtual PC under W7 x64, a complicated afair if one has to print just a few copies. The latest thread on this (and most other forums) is of 2009, so did anything happen after that date?
Does any one know of a working (tested!)driver solution for this printer? It's a shame that Cannon did not provide a decent driver. The vista / W7 x64 does not run on x64 platforms in any mode! Even for old Epsons I was able to find W7 x64 drivers.

First, make sure you uninstall any previously installed printer drivers in add/ remove programs which may conflict with the installation.

Check Device Manager for driver issues.

Select the newest version from the list. Then click download.

Do not turn on the printer until the software is installed.

Have a new Vista 64 Home Premium machine. Have a Canon i950 printer on my XP machine. Canon does not have a Vista driver for the printer. In these forums, found a post explaining there is a "driver add-on" that makes the i950 driver work in Vista.

Obtained the add-on. It requires that the "base driver" be installed (B3319MUX.EXE). When I run the driver's setup program, get "The Printer Driver Has Not Been Installed" message at the 60% completion point. Have tried the install in compatability mode and "run as administator" (Both XP and 2000), but get the same message. I am also logged in to an Administrator account.

It's on the list of supported scanners for VueScan, which works without
requiring there be good Windows drivers installed.

It worked for me on Vista 64. You can try it free before paying for it. If you like it you can decide whether to buy the program or use the money for a new scanner. You don't need a driver for the Lide 30--this program does it all.

I recently bought the supposedly excellent Canon MP530 multi-function printer,etc. and went to install it on my WinXP pro machine and . . . nothing. I've spent some time with Canon tech support (some helpful, some not so helpful) but I still can't get the freakin' things to communicate with each other. The consistent result of my installations is "no driver is installed" or "cannot find driver" - even though the driver itself seems to install. Also, when I turn the printer on, I get the New Hardware Wizard, which, I think, means my computer is detecting the printer. It's as if the driver is just not recognized by my computer.
I've installed (and uninstalled) the drivers from both the disc that came with the printer and from the Canon website. I've used two different USB cables. I've tried many combinations of plugging/unplugging, starting/restarting, turning on/off - all to no avail.

Hello All,
I think I saw a partial solution to my problem with the Cannon BJC 85 scanner feature on the Vista forums.
For some reason the scanner cartridge is not compatible with Vista o/s.
I was able to download the IS 12 scanner program partially onto my computer
using the Windows 98 mode as mentioned by the guest hgdffkhdf .
I also saw a posting by [EMAIL REMOVED] about ISScan_v350.exe
as being a solution.

Could anyone give me more detailed instructions on how to make the scanner work on Vista o/s?
Surely there must be a driver that will allow me to detect the scanner with Vista.

A:Where can I find a driver to detect a Canon scanner?

According to the Canon website you do not need any drivers for this model with Vista as they are already built into the operating system.

You may need software however to enable various features of the machine in which case you should be looking at that website.

Please, never publish email addresses in public forums, I suggest you edit your post and remove it for safety and privacy reasons.

I'll steer you to the software if you tell me which country you are in.

A:Canon S900 printer driver installation on Win 7

You should read this other thread I posted last week.

That other thread described my issues trying to get the x86 drivers for a Canon S800 installed as the second driver on an x64 Win7 machine. The S800 was USB-connected to the Win7 machine and was supported out-of-the-box by Win7. However the required x86 drivers were seemingly unavailable from Canon.

I was trying to add the x86 drivers as a second driver for the printer on x64 Win7 so that the x86 WinXP machine (which was also on the home LAN) could print on the S800 hosted by the x64 Win7 machine.

After quite a struggle, I solved the problem. It actually involved THREE separate driver(INF) files and folders. Two of them were on the Win7 installation DVDs, but the third one (which was the primary starting point) apparently didn't make it to Microsoft in time for the Win7 installation DVD production. so this crucial first of three drivers was only available from the Microsoft Updates Catalog site.

So the three needed x86 versions of the three x64 drivers that had been automatically installed in x64 Win7 were my target. Again, two of them were on the 32-bit x86 Win7 installation DVD (just as they were on the 64-bit x64 Win7 installation DVD). But again, the primary first driver was not. And that's what I got from the Microsoft Updates Catalog site.

I then used a program named WinMount to extract the two other x86 drivers from the 32-bit Win7 installation DVD which I had a copy of.

while l have found a 32bit driver l cannot find a 64bit one and the installation program keeps on telling me when l try the 32bit driver lve found that its not for 64bit OSs, and all the compatable software l have located seems to be just that.. addon software for those who actually have the printer driver.. which isnt exactly helping wouldnt be an issue if l was running a 32bit system.

anyone know where l could pick up an actual driver for the canon IP1900 printer that works on a 64bit version of Win7, any help would be greatly appreciated as lve been looking to no avail for the last 3 hours.

A:Issue finding driver for Canon IP1900

Don't think you're going to find one. According to Canon,

FAQ: To use the product you are using in the Windows 7 environment

Answer :

< Applicable models>

iP Series

iP1900, iP2600, iP3600, iP4600
The software supporting Windows 7 for the above models and how to install them are shown below.

Printer Driver

To be included in the OS.
Connect the printer with the computer, and power ON; the driver will be installed.
To use some unavailable functions, download Add-On Module to install it.

My Printer
Solution Menu
Adobe RGB
Easy-PhotoPrint EX

Only thing is they doesn't specify if that applies to both 32 bit and 64 bit, or just 32 bit.

I have installed what canon says is a 64 bit driver suitable for win 7 but when I try to use the msoft built in scan and fax facility, I get an error message telling me I need a wia driver, whatever that is.

I have not been able to source one, so has anyone any ideas.

By the way, the canoscan program works perfectly with win 7 64 bit.

Problem with Canon i865 printer driver, New PC with XP Home & SP2, 1024Mb memory, Intel 805 dual core 64 bit cpu 2.66Ghz printer connected via USB printer will print any colour but black! tested using word & notepad, paper motion and printhead motion normal but no ink applied to paper! have tried original i865 install disk, v1.73 driver d/l from web, and i865 drivers in xp home only thing of note is that at end of installation driver setup has great difficulty locating USB port that printer is connected to. Canon's first response... - it must be the USB port setting, delete them all and allow widows to reinstall them I have a cordless mouse and keyboard connected via USB, and guess which port I deleted first!!??... so I packed that idea in! retested, same problem whether using USB parallel cable or networked printer (through my old PC!)Canons latest response...The problem does not appear to be a software problem, but a problem with the printer itself. You report that it has worked OK on another PC, but we think that if you tested it again on another PC, using the same program, you would now see no black printed.Please note that different programs will print black differently. When printing from the web, black will be created from the coloured inks, while word processors will use the black ink.Perform 4 head cleanings, then 1 deep cleaning. These are accessible from the maintenance page of the printer driver.If after multiple print head clea... Read more

A:Print Driver Problem - Canon & Xp Home Sp2

Hi RWA, retested, same problem whether using USB parallel cable or networked printer (through my old PC!)Does this mean that you connected the printer to your new PC via its parallel port and had the same problem? If so that certainly ends any question that USB is involved.I would try a complete reinstall of the printer, with the first step including a manual search for /deletion of all Canon files and folders and the same of Canon keys/subkeys in the registry. What a hassle, but I can't think of any other way to be sure that some leftover/corrupt file or setting will not compromise the new installation. You are right, many if not most uninstall programs leave scraps behind.If that doesn't work then Canon has some explaining to do. Have you checked on Canon support forums to see whether anybody else has encountered this problem?

I purchased a Canon L170 FaxPhone laser printer only to find out that Canon does not make (nor plan to make) a Vista 64 driver.​
​ They claim "The current available driver download is for Vista x32. Regrettably​
there is not a workaround for compatibility between the L170 and Vista​ x64. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this causes​."​
​ Surely there must be somewhere I can get a printer driver so that I can install this L170 printer even if the driver is not full featured.​
​ Any help would be appreciated.​

A:Canon L170 FaxPhone Driver Issue

If the company that makes the hardware elected not to make a driver, some enterprising developer would have to try to write one independently. That's highly unlikely. I suggest returning it while you can and looking for a device that supports 64-bit Vista.

I just purchased a new Vista Home version computer. I started downloading old software/updates/etc. I have a Canon imageClass D680 multifunction printer/copier [Canon PC1200 /iC d600/iR1200G] with the original CD but it is not compatible with Vista.

I went to CanonUSA website and downloaded their Vista version of the driver. NOTE: I have done this numerous times and saved it to several different locations [Program file folder in both Vista and one I created in my user "Program" folder] because Vista notified me that I did not have Administrator authorization - I got on line and learned how to disable the user limitation so I could have Administrator rights.

I have restarted my computer in both my personal user account and Administrator account over a dozen time in order to bring up the new hardware notification window and driver wizard. Since the cd version did not work, it prompts me to browse, I click on the corresponding folder, and then I get the same message EVERY time . . .

[paraphrased] "windows cannot locate the driver for the hardware, contact the manufacturer to get the driver."

You guys out there are more tech savvy then me - please help. I do not want to trash this printer/copier - it works great (it worked fine with my old XP machine just a week or two ago).

Is Vista that bad? (All my Canon printers and cameras have been great).

I was working on getting the Canon ImageClass 4150 machine to work on a machine with Vista installed. I downloaded the new driver and upon trying to install the installer informed me that I needed to uninstall the previous instances of "MF Drivers" in order to reinstall.

I ran a utility included in the setup zip file that is supposed to remove previous Canon drivers in the 4100 series. I removed it from Add/Remove programs and also in the Device Manager. I've searched the computer (including hidden files, etc) and can't find any previous instances of the driver. Can't figure out what else I need to install.. Any help please?

I'm looking for a windows 7 driver fro a cannon D660U scanner, but alas, canon does not have one. The computer is running win7 home so XP mode is not an option. Is there another work-around?

It would be worth trying the Vista 32bit version driver for it. Worse case scenario is it won't work.

Preciously I had my Canon i9100 installed on a windows XP machine and working well.
I have since updated to a windows 7 (64bit) machine and can't install the old driver from the CD. "The CD Rom cannot be used with the current operating system."
I am aware there is a patch which I have downloaded but it can't patch what is not there.
Please advise me of how to proceed.
note - Internet explorer only comes up with blank screen when a search is performed.
