I would first check to make sure that the 5080 was installed properly. Some
techs make assumptions about knowing how to do something, rather than
reading instructions. If someone installs the 5080 the way it "should" be
done, they will get it wrong. If you have the necessary permissions, I would
suggest redoing the install yourself.

Canon 5080C Scanner Device Setup

1. Make sure computer and the scanner is off before connecting the

2. Connect your computer to the scanner using the cable.

3. On the back of the scanner, set the SCSI ID and terminator by setting
the switches. On the back of the scanner there are four DIP switches. The
first switch is for termination, so move it to the "up" position to
terminate it. The last three switches are for SCSI ID. We can leave it at
the default (SCSI ID 2).

4. Connect the power cord.

5. Turn on the scanner first then turn on the computer.

6. After turning on the computer, the "Found New Hardware" wizard will
come up. Click next.

7. Select the second option - "Display a list of the known drivers ..."

8. Under hardware type, select "Other Devices."

9. Under Manufacturer, select "Unknown." Under models, select "Unsupported

11. When you get the warning about the driver may not be compatible, select
"yes" to continue.

12. Click "yes" again to install the driver.

13. Click "finish" to close the wizard.

14. To verify installation, go to Device Manager and it should be listed as
"Unsupported Device" under "Other Devices."

I'm having a compatibility issue with a machine we just loaded Vista on. It
is (or was) running our Canon 5080 scanner, and now does not like the SCSI
card, according to our tech. I'm getting ready to dismantle the machine and
get the brand of the SCSI card to look for the right driver, because I don't
trust this particular tech. Anyone run into this and how did you resolve
it, or am I stuck having to buy a new SCSI card?
