What operating system and is it 32 bit or 64 bit??
Have you checked the canon website, They have drivers?
If For Windows 7, Canon Does Not have one - they Want you to buy a new scanner. I had the lide 35, which cannon would NOT provide a windows 7 64 bit driver (Would have been simple - shame on them.

sadly there is no drivers past win XP, i got few canoscan as well.

I end up using VirtualBox (or vmware) with windows XP installed. Works good just set destination to shared folder and pictures end up on real PC folder.

the lide20 is a great old scanner, but no, there are no drivers beyond XP, they simply do not exist. You can try the WinXP drivers, but there is no guarantee it will work properly

^ I think that is for Win 7 32 bit (reason I asked op if 32bit, or 64 bit).
Only saw xp 64 bit and vista 64 bit.
