Canoscan FB1210U Updating drivers for Vista

Canon told me that the reason they haven''t provided a new driver for the FB1210U is that Vista has an internal driver that will automatically update. However I have to turn firewall and antivirus off as Vista has issues with getting past these?

Can you please advise, I can't believe that there are older models than my scanner and Canon provided vista drivers for those and not this model.

Very frustrated and would appreciate any advice you may have. Thanks

Re: Canoscan FB1210U Updating drivers for Vista

Have you tried the latest XP drivers? If this scanner is based on an in-box driver like usbscan.sys, odds are it will work in Vista in spite of any installation warnings you might get. If the driver pack includes a setup program you may have to run it in XP SP2 compatibility mode.

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)

CanoScan N1220U Scanner Windows 7 64-bit Driver

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!

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.

This solution will cost you a bit (and given the low price of some new or reconditioned all-in-ones these days, you may not think it worth it), but the user interface is better, IMHO, than the CanoScan Toolbox and, by Jeezly, the thing just WORKS. After I installed it, I unplugged my FB630U, plugged it back in again, and BOOM!, Vista said that it had installed the driver. I was so tickled, I promptly bought the more expensive version of the software, and my good ol' CanoScan is scanning again. Check out VueScan from The unpurchased download adds watermarks, but you can at least try before you buy. Now why the hell can't Canon come up with a driver for its own scanner?

I cant find a driver for my canoscanFB630U for Vista any Ideas?

Canoscan FB630U - No need to buy 'VueScan' - that does work but $70 is a long way towards a new scanner.

I've had no problems using the XP canon driver (v. under vista (just download, decompress then 'Update driver' in the device manager and point it to the decompressed files).

This is a TWAIN driver not the newer WIA type driver which means that the scanner will not appear in Windows Fax and Scan or in the the Scanners and Cameras group of control panel. Photoshop / Paintshop pro etc are perfectly happy to use TWAIN scanners, however!

Hope that helps someone!

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!
