Is there any twain driver for this camera? Something that i can use to interact with the camera as a webcam for taking pictures with another software called ID Flow.

I tried it using irfanView but it says "Video dataSource is offline or is not responding"

My bad, I think I read your question too fast.  This will probably not work...

Does your camera have the Live View feature?  There seems to be some firmware hacks floating around to make this work though...

YEs it has the live view features.. When used by the EOS utility from canon it works but i want to use another software(ID Flow) some ID card software to take the picture and store it into a database. I am avoiding taking the picture with another software (EOS utililty) then use the ID flow to browse the picture. All that we want is to use the ID flow and take picture from it because it will store it to the database automatically.
