I have CanoScan FS4000US....
I have CanoScan FS4000US. I have been copying slides for a friend on my wife's computer(an older model...about 5 or 6 years old.) The program was inadvertantly de-installed and I cannot reinstall it. I've tried to install it on my computer and it won't install there either. I have the original software disk but it just won't install. Any ideas?
