Canon 5200F won't work under vista 32 Bit

My canon scanner won't work under my vista 32 Bit edition installed on may fujitsu-siemens amilo notebook. I have downloaded and installed the vista drivers from canon support site. After install i restarted the notebook and connect the scanner per USB but the system won't recognize it. It alwas says New Hardware Found ... If i choose now "Determine Driver automatically" the system won't find anything. Also when use other usb-ports I have the same problem.

Could you help?

    Same problem. I started by downloading the Windows Vista 64bit drivers, but that wouldn't work with my new Toshiba laptop. Went back, downloaded the 32 bit version and, voila, the CanonScan softwared installs fine. But any button press soon yields a small screen that says the scanner appears turned off (check cable etc)...can't seem to find the key to the problem; a shame, since this is one fine scanner... any help appreciated.

Where can I find Driver for my Canon ( CanoScan 3000 / 3000F) for Windows 7 ??


Canon has a driver for Vista 32-bit here: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=235&modelid=8741#DownloadDetailAct . This might work in Win7 32-bit (possibly you will need the compatibility mode - right click on the driver and choose properties and the Compatibility tab.).

However, Canon has no 64-bit Vista support and no Win7 drivers and no plans to update the drivers for Win7. You can try a generic scanner driver from the OS - chose a TWAIN driver.

I wish that I could be more help.

No driver for Canoscan FB 630U Vista 64 bit


Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Canon supports this scanner under Vista. Check if the Windows generic TWAIN scanner driver will work. The Canon software won't work. If the generic driver can be installed, then you should be able to acquire scans in Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera), Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) (some versions of Vista) or Windows Photo Gallery (IIRC it works like Paint).

I hope this helps.

(Canon wants you to upgrade. I have a different scanner that isn't officially supported past XP and the generic driver works fine. Unfortunately, you can't just use the XP driver in the compatibility mode due to the lack of signed drivers that are required in the 64-bit OS)

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.

Canon Scanner - Twain Pilot


QUICK ANSWER: use the original USB cable that came with the scanner.

LONG EXPLANATION:
Using Vista (32 bit version) and a Canon N670U scanner with the new drivers installed from the CanonUSA website. This driver is works for Canon scanners: LiDE 20, LiDE 30, N670U, N676U and N1240U, found at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=235&modelid=6625

Canon says it doesn't support Vista 64 bit version. I couldn't get the scanner to work and kept getting the TWAIN error also, despite uninstalling / reinstalling the driver. Finally, decided to disconnect my 3rd party 16 foot USB cable and use the original cable. I swear, it WORKED! I can't explain why, but it did. Perhaps there is increased resistance, hence reduced power going to the scanner by using longer/different USB cable? Anyhow, it worked...go figure. If you have the 64 bit version of Vista, I guess it won't work(?).
