No drivers for Canon Lide 500F RRS feed


All replies

  • Hello,
    i find no drivers for my Canon Lide 500F.


    If you cannot find Windows 7 drivers for that device, download the Vista drivers and install them using the Compatibility Mode option.

    Right click the driver installation file and select Properties/Compatibility Tab. Select the options shown in the following image.

    Click Apply/OK.

    Right click the file and select the Run As Administrator option to install.

    I also recommend that you contact the maker of that device and inquire about future support for Windows 7.

    Thank You for testing Windows 7

  • As of now, latest driver available from Canon ( built on 05.07.2005) works only half-way. It's a classic TWAIN-driver, and I believe Win7 uses another driver model for that.
    You can use it in any TWIAN-based app (like GIMP or Photoshop) but not the new bundled tools.
    It's showing in "Scanners and Cameras", but "Windows Fax and Scan" is showing error "No scanners were detected". I couldn't find a way to attach files here, so no proof screenshots for now :(

  • If there is a full featured version of the driver for Windows XP, you can follow these steps to install it and should get full functionality.
