I'm trying to install a Canon Scanner it's an CanoScan N124OU

I don't have a driver - help??

try going onto Canons website and downloading the driver software

you MAY be able to download something from here

KatyMac Thu 24-Jul-08 20:59:26

I feel so daft

morningpaper Thu 24-Jul-08 21:00:34

what operating system?

get a screwdriver, put it in your mouth while you look at the back of the scanner.

Say "umm" and "ahhh"

Say "aaaah HA!"

Pop up from behind the scanner and say "you need a flangelating sprocket. I'll get one tomorrow while I'm out and pop back later to fix it"

Then run.

Kevlarhead - Do I have to pay for that?

morningpaper Thu 24-Jul-08 21:06:54

try this

here

You will need to view a load of ads first but it's a reliable site

<<or I am I stingy>>

Driverguide standard free username and password...

username: drivers password: all

See if that's enough to get you what you want.

morningpaper Thu 24-Jul-08 21:58:19

I don't think that works anymore

But KatyMac you can click the option that says JUST SHOW ME THE ADS and then you click through 20 ads and get the driver for free

PortAndLemon Thu 24-Jul-08 22:00:03

Darn, I've had that saved for years.

KatyMac Thu 24-Jul-08 22:02:54

OK - I think I'm getting somewhere....maybe
