Since ControlCenter3 uses the TWAIN driver when scanning, this error occurs. Please go to Step 1 to check if the TWAIN driver is installed correctly.
 

  • The built-in driver is included with Windows 7 and installed automatically by connecting your machine to the Windows 7 computer via the USB interface. The built-in driver is also called "Inbox driver".
     
  • TWAIN driver makes the scanner compatible with any TWAIN-supporting software.
