Dear Advisors,


My PC (Windows98) has been installed with CANON CanoScan N670U.

Complete with TWAIN Driver and SCANGEAR Scanning Toolbox.


But for unknown reason, this Scanner cannot be connected.


Message is :


Check connection and restart toolbox


I have been tried some more way to Remove, Install & Reinstall with no success.

With original CD installing driver N067U.INF but useless.

Really this makes depression. :cr@sh:


Is there anything wrong with REGISTRY or something.....


Do Mr. FZWG also give a helping hand on this forum please :blushing:



Thanks & Regards

Being it is a USB scanner, most of the time a USB device requires that the software be installed first before you connect the device. Did you install the software first? If not, try uninstalling what you have already installed and reboot the computer. Then install the software before you connect the scanner. See if that helps.

Dear Signman,


Thanks for your reply.

I think I have done this before. But I'll try this once more.


Even I download the DELDRVwin1242ejf.EXE to delete the driver first.

But it still got no efffect (on that particular PC).



Is it about Registry entries that disabling these features...



Thanks for support!

Hi Wirosari,


I had a similar problem with a CanoScan LIDE 50. It is connected to my computer through a USB PCI card plugged into my motherboard. It turned out that there was a conflict of IRQs and the scanner was not being recognised through the PCI card.


This is how I resolved it:-

1. Make sure the scanner driver is loaded & the scanner plugged in - go to Device Manager and check that the scanner is listed under "Imaging Devices".

2. In Device Manager now go to "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" and delete the USB Controller into which your scanner is plugged.

3. Unplug the scanner and reboot your computer. The deleted USB Controller will be recognised as a new device and reloaded - this time hopefully allocated an IRQ which is not conflicting with another USB device.

4. Plug in the scanner - open the Toolbox and it should now work.

I have an lide30 scanner and it seemed to me when I ran 98se on it, (old scanner) I needed to get the twain driver off the 98se disk, it was troublesome to get the twain driver working as I recall



just checked out the install guide for 98 and you do need to get the twain driver off the windows 98 disk
