In simple terms, Twain is a language (or software protocol application programming) between programs and image devices, such as scanner. When you access an image using a program, it will communicate first with twain, like an interpreter, if twain isnot properly installed or damage, then you need to reinstall the latest HP twain driver.

Have seen the same problem quite frequently with a customers HP Scanner.
Just download the newest drivers, COMPLETELY uninstall the scanner. Reinstall software then reconnect scanner. (USB of course)

yes, i have seen this also. look on hp for a fix. if your scanner has a button on it to scan manually, that is probably going to need to be disabled...see hp website for more info
