Canoscan LIDE 70

Asked by Elbarbudo on 2010-06-21

There was a very old question about this scanner,
and an old topic on SaneDevel forum.
I hoped the issue has been fixed, but even in Lucid Lynx, this scanner is not recognized.

Hence my comment : "Nothing new since 2006?"

I am very frustrated and disappointed, but I know that Canon does not share information.....

I finally gave my Canoscan LIDE 70 away. I don't think Canon ever wanted to write a Linux driver for this scanner. My solution was to buy an HP Photosmart C6280 (or similar model) which has a flat-bed scanner as part of the unit. The scanner worked just fine with Applications > Graphics > Simple Scan.

Worst story for this scanner : it is not recognized by W7 nor W10 : plugin it does not even emit the "bing" of a connected USB device.

My 2 cents idea is that the USB is off (or in a sleep state) on this scanner and that the XP driver awake it.

Can you help with this problem?
