MF can't find CanoScan 9000F (OS X 10.11.2)

Hi everyone,


I just got a CanoScan 9000F and I can't make it work with the MF tools.

First of all: I am using OS X 10.11.2 and I can use the scanner trough the system preferences, but that only offers me limited options and since I mainly want to scan film, it doesn't seperate the individual negatives from each other. Therefore I want to use the Canon software to do so.

However, even though the scanner appears in my printer & scanner settings in the system preferences, MF Toolbox and Canon MF Scan Utility can't find the scanner. Same for Canon IJ Scan Utility2.

I also installed the two drivers from here:

I don't know what to do anymore and would be really gratefull for any help!

The CanoScan 9000F has a horrific software interface, and Canon has indicated no interest in improving the platform. My best advice is to toss the device and buy a real scanner from Epson, HP, or Visioneer.
