Getting canon 4200f scanner to run on Windows Vista

Since purchasing a Dell PC that runs Vista, my Canon 4200F scanner no longer works. I have contacted both Dell and Canon, but their suggestions have not solved the problem

I tried to use my Canon 4200f with windows vista 32bit and get the usual error.


Hello,
This scanner does work with Vista, as well as Windows 7. I have the exact same one. Goto Canon's website and download the latest driver for Vista. Here is the link: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_4200f#DriversAndSoftware
Download and install the driver and the CanoScan Toolbox software.
Regards, Chris

I downloaded the drivers to my vista computer but keep getting an "unable to select Twain Source error".


Hi,

The drivers for your Canon CanoScan 4200F Flatbed Scanner available are for Windows 7 64bit, Windows Vista 64bit, Windows ME and Windows 98. Is your Windows Vista a 64bit version? You might want to upgrade your Windows Vista from 32bit to 64bit. Always remember, the softwares and drivers are limited to manufacturer's releases.



I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!


Thanks for using Fixya!

Are you looking for the Window XP 64bit drivers? As those are not listed on Canon's support site but the Vista and Windows 7 64 bit drivers can be downloaded from the support site link below. The ScanGear software is also available on the USA site.

Yes, you can use it without the toolbox. Both windows xp and vista have utilities for retrieving images from a scanner.

Canoscan 4200f Problem with Vista 32 bit


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.
