Canoscan LIDE scanner & XP

    I have recently upgraded from W98 to XP & now I'm finding it impossible
    to re install the above scanner as XP refuses to read the driver CD.

    The scanner is fairly new and works perfectly- the instructions to
    install cover both W98 & XP.

    To start from scratch, I have removed all previous Canon files on C
    drive-when I put the CD Rom into the CD drive, the Canoscan Setup
    facility appears, requests a language,which when I press English, I get
    a DemoShield player. This lists some of the files on the CD but when I
    press the Setup file, the window simply closes.

    The CD loads perfectly on a laptop with XP - there is nothing wrong
    with the CD Drive as this reads music and other CDRoms without problem.

    When I go into Device Manager & right click on the yellow qustion mark
    for 'other devises', the install Wizard comes up but eventually refuses
    to recognise the driver software on the CD rom.

    Can anyone suggest what I need to do to get this scanner working again

    Many thanks
