Software for Canon LiDE 20 scanner (Vista compatible)

I have a Canon LiDE 20 scanner (xp compatible). I recently got an hp laptop with windows vista. The software does not have the Vista's compatibility option. I downloaded the Vista compatible driver from Canon but the scanner does not get detected. Could you help ?

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!
good luck!

My Canon LiDE 50 worked perfectly on my copy of windows vista. I recently downgraded to xp (upgraded imho). Now the drivers wont install and windows still sees it as an unknown machine.


Are the drivers installed for windows xp, and what service pack do u have.First uninstall the drivers and reinstall them (make sure u select windows xp) and make sure it is xp compatable (vista drivers are not backwards compatable in most cases)
if this is a usb device (most likley usb 2.0) goto my computer right click select properties then select hardware then device magager check to make sure there are no yellow question marks, scroll down click on usb and make sure there are no problems here. then u can go to cannon's web site and download latest drivers and any fixes they may have

Canoscan driver


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?
