Windows 7: Software for Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 Scanner

Software for Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 Scanner

Granted this is an old scanner, and it works great; but the software that came with it does not allow me to select any destination folder.

Can anyone recommend some freeware that should work with this scanner that allows the user to select any folder as the destination, and also include PDF and JPG save as types?

Thanks for any input.

Have you checked the Canon website to see if there are any software updates?

Yes, I have the latest (only) version of the software. I think I also called Canon and was told they couldn't provide any software.

A couple of possible solutions for you to consider-

Since it scans to Photo Studio, can't you just do a file\save as from there?

Also, there is an e-mail button on the scanner which allows one to attach the scanned image to a new e-mail. Could you do that and e-mail to yourself; open the attachment and then do a copy/paste to the folder of choice?

I realize these are round-about ways to do something that should normally be very simple. Just throwing them out there as possibilities.

lot of people use this - don't know if it works for your particular scanner, but you can try

Thanks for your replies.

To wither 2:

I have no idea what you mean by 'it scans to Photo Studio'. I don't think the CanoScan software does that, whatever Photo Studio is.

The Mail button has the same 'save scanned image to...' option as the Save of Scan buttons, with the same limitations on where the scan can be saved.

I've tested the Not Another PDF Scanner 2 software and it seems to be a good substitution.

Thanks again for your thoughts.

In the user guide here-

CANON CANOSCAN LIDE 25 QUICK START MANUAL Pdf Download.

It says you have the ArcSoft PhotoStudio.

In the Mail button, it should scan to an e-mail not your disk. That's what my HP does. As said, it's a round-about way of doing things.

Only if she/he installed Arc Studio from the disc. I have the Lide 30, and upon installation into XP, I immediately dumped Arc Studio. I always saved my scans to the desktop, then sorted them into the correct subfolder in my Graphics folder. But I couldn't get it to run on Win 7 at all, and bought a new 3-in-1.

These might help:

In trying to help, the best I can do is look at the manuals, when I don't have the device mentioned. The user guide I linked doesn't mention alternatives. In the second link you provided, I wonder what would have happened if the setup was run in XP compatibility mode.

Mine is over 15 years old, and I think I used it in Win98. Getting it to run in Win 7 might be a matter of luck. Glad you got it to work, br4. And I just D/L VueScan in case my 3-in-one dies.
