Check Canon. But don't hold your breath- the peripherals industry are up in arms about have to provide drivers because of Vista. If the Scanner worked on XP/2000 it should have carried on. But no chance if it is one from the 95/98 era. I am not familiar with yet with Vista[perhaps never will be] but in XP under Start/Programs/accessories/ you would find a compatibility tab. here you can reset the system to run as 95/8- does such a thing exist with Vista?

    have you checked the the Canon website for a driver update?
    Failing that check with their Tech support about Canon Scanners and Vista.

Canoscan does not work on vista 64-bit

I'm not sure if this will work on the lide 20. I have an lide 35, and there are no 64 bit drivers for it. I downloaded and installed the drivers for the lide 60, told the computer to manually find the lide 60 drivers for my scanner, and installed the canoscan toolbox for vista 64 bit. Works like a champ.

Canon Canoscan LIDE 50

Hi am gonna provide you with the link from where you can download it, keep it mind that if you have changed operating systems, then the scanner might not be compatible with you current operating system. For instance if you had Windows ME or Windows XP but currently have Windows Vista there might be some compatibility issues. Good Luck!
