CanoScan D646U driver for Windows Vista

My CanoScan D646U failed to work following my recent installation of Windows Vista as the current driver supports up to XP only. Is there a solution to this?

CANOSCAN D646U NOT HAVE DRIVER FOR WIDNOWS VISTA


Try to run windows vista in compatibility mode. If you can't find the driver for it, even under driverguide.com, this is about the only other thing you can try.

Canoscan D646U ex not working on windows vista os


That is because their is no VISTA driver written for that model,because that model was not made for the VISTA OS. If you were told it would work,they were wrong. It is unlikely that CANON wil ever have a driver written for VISTA for an older model,but it could happen,especially if enough people wrote to ask for it?

Driver download


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.

Many Thanks.

AJoshi

Twain error on cannon scan D646U on VISTA


The D646U is not compatible with Windows Vista. Call Canon and inquire about their Customer Loyalty Program. They let you upgrade to a more current scanner at a reduced price.
