Scanner not showing up in Control Panel/Scanners and Cameras

-- Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may
be corrupted or missing. (Code 39).... is the message I receive while in
Device Manager checking to see if my scanner or webcam is being loaded
properly. When I plug either into a USB port either front or back 2.0 ports,
it recognizes the device by name but then a second window appears stating
that I may have problems using this device (this is shown in the task bar by
the clock). I have ran both the scanner and the webcam on another computer
and there were no issues. Neither device shows up in the Control Panel thus
leaving me to beleive a thread or registry entry may be wrong or corrupted.
The scanner and webcam do come up under Imaging Devices and not Other Devices
while in Device Manager. I have spoken with Canon, the scanner manufacturer
and they advised that it may be a windows issue. Any ideas are most welcomed
here as this is driving me nuts.

Code 39
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be
corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

Recommended resolution
Reasons for this error include a driver that is not present; a binary file
that is corrupted; a file I/O problem, or a driver that references an entry
point in another binary file that could not be loaded.

Uninstall the driver, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall
or upgrade the driver.

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the
Troubleshooting Wizard.
from...
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310123

Try this. Make sure that the device is not plugged in.

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories and then click
Command Prompt.
2. At a command prompt, type the following command , and then press ENTER:

set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1

3. Type the following command a command prompt, and then press ENTER:

start devmgmt.msc

4. In Device Manager, click View and click Show hidden devices.

5. Locate the device that you want to uninstall, right click and select
Uninstall

6. When you finish, close Device Manager.
7. Type exit at the command prompt.

Reboot.

Then reinstall your device.

Very similar problem. same error msg. during my installtion of Canon 4400f
scanner. I read and followed the instructions given by Wesley Vogel and think
I may be on top of my problem however must resolve another problem to maybe
fix this one. When following Wes' instructioons in the hidden files I find
"Microtek" (scanner) and a seperate "Usb" in the same file. When I attempted
to delete I got the message: "Failed to uninstall the device. The device may
be required toboot up the computer." I did s search in the registry file and
found trace of microtek in a number of places. I have installed an
uninstalled the microtek scanner software. Any suggestions?

Hello Wes,

K..this is what I found. It may sound really simple when you read it, and it
was, it was just hard to figure out why??? After running devmgr and following
your instruction I decided to try and install the camera first. AHA...the
camera loaded fine along with its' own software. After seeing this I decided
to try and load the scanner and software again and voila, everything is back
to normal again.

Is it possible that some of the files that the webcam was using were being
shared with the scanner files. My guess would be a positive yes. I have not
bothered to reverse the install just incase I did not get lucky a second
time...which would make no sense at all unless we really wanted to nail this
problem down.

I hope this helps some others out there and all your help was great. Please,
keep up all the great technical support in the fashion you do!

Regards,
RDRR

Folowed your instructions however on viewing the devices (hidden) after
selecting the command prompt I found a device microtek (my old scanner) which
refused to uninstall. When I tried I got the message: "Failed to uninstall
the device. The device may be required to boot up the computer" I still can
not install my Canon 4400F scanner. I believe if I can remove all reference
to "Microtek" i would be home free. Any suggestions?

Failed to uninstall the device The device may be required to boot up the
computer

Ask for help here..
http://www.microtek.com/

Here are a few ideas.

Is the old scanner unplugged? Shut down and physically remove it.

Uninstall whatever software may be associated with your device microtek
(your old scanner) in Add or Remove Programs.

There may be a related SERVICE to do with your old scanner, that may be
what's causing the "The device may be required to boot up the computer"
message. The service MAY be listed in Non-Plug and Play Drivers in Device
manager.* Open services.msc and look around.

Disable and Stop the Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service.

Boot into Safe Mode and try to uninstall your device microtek.

* For example, I have two services listed in the registry related to a cable
modem...
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Services\brgwnd5
DCM-201 DOCSIS Cable Modem (NDIS)
System32\DRIVERS\brgwnd5.sys

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Services\brgwunic
DCM-201 DOCSIS Cable Modem (WDM)
System32\DRIVERS\brgwunic.sys

Those used to show up here...
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services
and in Non-Plug and Play Drivers in Device manager.

They do not show up any more because I uninstalled every thing related to
that modem.

I just used ControlSet002 as an example. Do NOT mess with ControlSet001 or
ControlSet002.

ControlSet001 may be the last control set you booted with, while
ControlSet002 could be what is known as the last known good control set, or
the control set that last successfully booted Windows NT. The
CurrentControlSet subkey is really a pointer to one of the ControlSetXXX
keys.

Very interesting sight - thank you for help. I have experienced exactly the same problem as here but with a Plustek film scanner. Despite strenuous efforts couldn't solve problem so Datamind agreed a refund. Bought Canon 4400F only to read here has same problem. But followed advice to remove all traces of previous scanners and found Canon loaded as sweetly and easily as anything ever has. Incidentally, if you think USB might be the problem (VIA chipsets not flavour of the month apparently) then USA sight 'USBman' exceedingly good on sorting BIOS and general advice on USB matters.
Many thanks again to all for super info.
Frank
