Can't connect scanner

  heavymetalkid 19:07 22 Feb 2006

My computer has just recovered from a crash and I have had to re-install everything. Most of it has gone back on, however my scanner won't re-install. I'm running XP, the scanner is an Artec and despite the screen saying installation complete, when I attempt to turn it on the screen shows"failed to open the Twain driver" Can anyone help?

Are you installing it as per manufactures instructions?

Hi ICF, yes following the on screen instructions,it worked perfectly before my machine crashed.

Have you uninstalled the scanner and rebooted then tried the installation procedure?

Have you restarted the computer as Twain will not work until you do

Yes thanks all done now, however can I pick your brains one more time? I've just opened my e-mail inbox and,I had a few opened and read messages there that have vanished. They are completely gone,not in the deleted box or anywhere. I didn't delete anything. Any idea how they could have vanished?
