Yes the software should certainly work with windows vista. The same is also available on the canon support website if you wish to download it.

I have provided the link as well.

Hope this helps

Can't find a Win 7 compatible driver for my Canoscan N1220U

This is an obsolete scanner that was not supported in Vista. If it was never supported in Vista I cannot see Canon supplying a driver for this scanner in Windows 7. Sadly you are out of luck with this scanner. You may find a work around that would allow you to operate the scanner from the scanner itself, but you are more than likely never going to find a driver that will allow full function. The Windows Compatibility website lists this scanner as non-compatible. I did find this driver that say's it is Windows 7 driver but I make no guarantee as to if this will work or not. Save the file and scan with our anti-virus and anti-spyware software before installing to be sure this file is clean.

Try to run windows vista in compatibility mode. If you can't find the driver for it, even under, this is about the only other thing you can try.

There are Vista drivers for the 5000F available here. Be sure and download both the driver and the Toolbox (listed under Software).

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!
