CanoScan 5600F not showing up in Device Manager


I have a CanoScan 5600F that I haven't used in about 4 years, it's just been sitting in a box.  Never had a problem with it, I only used it to scan slides and photo negatives.  I decided to use my mother's Lenovo desktop (Windows 7 Home Premium) exclusively for this task.  But the scanner is not recognized, doesn't even show up in Device Manager.  Normally a new device would still show up there even if the driver isn't found, correct?  The problem isn't with the computer - I plugged other USBs in and they work fine.  When I plug the scanner into my laptop, I get nothing.  So the problem must be with the scanner.  Any suggestions?
