1. ScanGear CS 7.0 Features

ScanGear CS 7.0 for Windows (hereafter referred to as "ScanGear CS") is 
a 32-bit TWAIN-compliant scanner driver for Canon CanoScan LiDE 20/N670U/
N676U and CanoScan LiDE 30/N1240U scanners. 
When this driver is selected from within a TWAIN-compliant application 
program, one of these scanners can be used to scan image data.

2. A General Tip on Usage

o Only run one application at a time that is actively linked to 
  ScanGear CS. Do not open more than one application that is actively 
  linked to ScanGear CS.
  Also, do not open ScanGear CS more than once to acquire an image in 
  the same application.

o If you scan a very large image at high resolution, some applications 
  may determine that there is not enough disk space to scan and save the 
  image, and will return an error. 

o If the image size is large, such as when you scan a large image at a 
  high resolution, for using some applications, the progress bar may 
  freeze at 0% due to limitations of the application.
  In this case, click the Cancel button on the progress bar, and then 
  select a smaller area or lower resolution and try scanning again.

o With Windows 2000 or XP, the TWAIN data source may not open correctly 
  from time to time when the system file is in the NTFS format. 
  For security reasons, the TWAIN module cannot be written to the 
  "winnt" directory. For details, contact your system administrator.

o Always close the ScanGear CS main window before you exit the parent 
  application program.
o With Windows 2000 or XP, the system administrator is required to 
  install or uninstall ScanGear CS.
o Certain personal computers (including laptops) may not restart 
  correctly from standby mode when the scanner is attached. If this 
  occurs, please reboot the computer.

o The scanner button may not operate after you install the driver. In 
  this case, restart the system.

o When you preview or scan an image with a relatively uniform 
  background, the Auto Tone function may change its coloring. 
  If this occurs, reset the Auto Tone. 

o With Windows Me, the scanner may not be detected after the USB cable 
  has been disconnected and reconnected. If this occurs, please reboot 
  the computer. 

3. Running ScanGear CS with Specific Applications

o Images after the first image can not be passed on to the linked 
  application when the Multi Photo Scan function is used with 
  Microsoft Word 2000, Excel 2000 or PowerPoint 2000.

o Some applications may close ScanGear CS automatically after scanning.

o Some application programs may hide the TWAIN user interface.
  In this case, refer to the application programer's manual to find out 
  the required setting changes to show the TWAIN user interface.

4. Notes when using the scanner after switching users in Windows XP

o The scanner may be unable to operate if a large portion of the system 
  resources, such as the memory, is being used by another user. In this 
  case, close any programs that are open in the other user environment 
  before scanning.
