Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I'm not great with technnology but I have looked at downloads on line but am not sure what is appropriate. I found a Tevion Driver downloads ad but don't know if it is specific to the filmstrip scanner.
Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems.
So if you manage to get any driver, just test it. The software that came with your scanner should work. (At least in the XP compatible mode)
The next thing you can try is to download any free ware scanner software. Perhaps you can get a trail version of SilverFast, for your scanner. As soon as you have to pay for the software, think of buying a new scanner, because sometimes a Windows 7 or 8 compatible film scanner is cheaper than the software.
The SilverFast software starts at 59 dollar, (not even sure they have a compatible package for your scanner) My pro version costs already 300. But perhaps you can download a trail version there to see if it works for you. (Perhaps if you remove the software or stop using when you have to pay for it, the driver keeps working??)

did you install the drivers? they were probably downloaded compressed- you need to look at your download list and install from there. don't know if vista refers to it as install wizard, as xp does, but check that the download was actually opened and installed. otherwise, it's sitting on your hdd doing nothing useful. i'm not familiar with vista, know a lot of people who tried it and switched back to xp. still waiting for the user reports for w7. supposed to be a great improvement on vista! so we wait and watch!
anyway, check out whether your patch for your scanner actually was installed!

Testimonial: "Thanks a lot.Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.connected the scanner to my PC- Windows XP.Canon replied that it does not support Vista 64bit."
You may use Hamrick VueScan Pro, it installs a driver that makes 1220 to work. Or, if the version of Windows 7 you use support XP Mode, install it.
It's still a good scanner, and mine is working in 7 x64 using XP Mode!
