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.

You should be able to find the drivers you need on the canon web site.

4. Make sure classic view if checked
5. Double click Device Manager
6. Under imaging devices right click CanoScan N650U/N656U and select update driver software...

This will only work with Windows 7 - 32bit OS. I personally reinstalled windows 7 - 32 bit. Had too many problems with the 64bit OS and all by Older software. Could not afford to buy all new hardware and software for use on a 64bit system.

I have a canon n122ou n65ou n656u flatbed scanner and i have a new laptop gateway windows 7 and it said could not detect device, it did not download what is wrong?


Looks as if that scanner is not compatible with windows 7. Best thing to do to verify it, go to this site:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=6858

Even though your running windows 7, choose vista as your OS.

Then download the software and see if it will install. If it installs then your good to go. I've had other hardware that wouldn't work with windows 7 but yet i go to install the vista drivers and i've gotten stuff to work. Give it a try so you know for sure.

Can't get drivers for CanoScan N650U scanner for Vista 64 bit. Anyone have a work-around?


This works for 32-bit, maybe try the same for 64 and see if it works?
1) Download the drivers for XP from Canon's website
2) Install the drivers.
3) They will install to C:/Temp/CanoScanCSUv571a, go there
4) There is a compressed file called: CanoScanCSUv571a.exe in the foler
5) Use 7-zip to uncompress the folder
6) Plug in your scanner
7) Go to your device manager under the Control Panel
8) Go to Imaging Devices and select your scanner
9) Right click to update driver information
10) Select browse my computer for driver software
11) Type in: C:\Temp\CanoScanCSUv571a
12) Click next and your scanner will work.

How do i install my N1220U on vista windows?


Ok, I think I managed to get my Canoscan N650U working with Vista using the XP drivers from the Canon website.

Download the drivers and extract all the files to a directory on your PC.

Connect the scanner, the popup will appear saying found new hardware, normally it wants the files from the CD, but there is an option to find the drivers at a particular location, choose that and point it to where you downloaded the XP Canoscan drivers. Let it install. You should then see it in control panel and can test it OK.
