Dear Sami Kotaich,
unfortunately your Cannon has not released drivers for vista for this product.
I can give you one suggestion; connect your scanner with vista PC and atleast let it try to install necessary USB drivers. once it has been done you will see message your hardware installed or there was a problem installing drivers for your hardware and it may not work properly.
now leave scanner connected and go in start menu- programs- accessories- paint
once you are in paint click on File Menu then From Scanners or Cameras. if it does recognize and you get scan wizard then you will be able to use your scanner on vista. but if it doesn't recognize then I am sorry you might need to get more authentic recommendation from Cannon support.
let me know does it work or not? or if any more questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I got mine working after experiencing the same problem.
I had mine hooked up to a USB hub, after I hooked it directly to the USB ports in the back of my computer, everything just worked fine.
Weird that it worked on the USB hub on XP and not vista though.

There are no available drivers for windows 7 operating system for your scanner. You can download the official windows xp drivers from this link and before run the downloaded file right click on the file and at the compatibility section check the windows xp sp3 compatibility option and hit apply - ok. After this run the file as usual. This procedure will install the drivers is windows xp sp3 compatibility mode.
In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.
Thanks and regards

Unfortunately, Canon is not supporting Win7 for your scanner. There is a Vista driver (and one for XP). If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can run your scanner in the XP mode (that creates virtual PC). To access the scanned documents, you may need to transfer them to an external medium to share between the "two" computers.
I hope this helps.
