I managed to get my N656U scanner working on Vista. Download the latest XP driver software ScanGear_65_v5.7.1bEn.exe from the Canon download site. Also download the scangear toolbox file ScanGearToolboxCSv223.exe. Execute the ScanGear_65_v5.7.1bEn.exe file and it should unpack the file in a temporary folder (C:\temp maybe) leaving a file N065U.INF which is the driver. Unplug the USB wire and plug it back in and Vista should go through the motions of recognizng new hardware. When it asks for a disk, browse for the INF file that it dumped in the C:\temp folder. After that it takes the driver and installs it (mine was successfull), and you should hear the scanner motor kick in. After that, install the ScanGear Toolbox software and reboot. I tried all sorts of things (including writing a nasty note to Canon to vent my frustrations with their obsolete hardware) that wouldn't work until I did everything in this sequence. Of course Canon won't admit this will work, but it did for me and my N656U works fine now as it always did for XP, except the button to initiate the scanner does not work. You need to kick the scanner into action using the software or some imaging software "Acquire" or twain option usually found under "File" menus.

I bought a new computer window vista and i have a flat bed scanner from canon a n650u/n656u and it worked fine with my windows xp but i need an up date driver for it to work with vista can you help me


According to Canon, the CanoScan N650u/N656U is not compatible with Windows Vista.  They have not released a compatible driver.  You could attempt to use a different driver, but that causes the system to become unstable and crash often, if it works at all.  I recommend upgrading to a Vista-compatible scanner.
