How can i down load the driver free

Here's the link to the Benq website where you can download the drivers (click here) [note that this model doesn't support windows vista and windows 7]. Once you open the link, you'll see all the available drivers, click the "Winzip" icon below the respective driver's name to download.

If you need further help, let me know with the name of the operating system installed on your computer where you are gonna install this scanner.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Wont scan with new computer , uses vista

Unfortunatly there is no driver made by cannon to make this unit work with Windows Vista and they are not going to invent one either.

However did you use Vista to id the unit as a scanner and use Vista's Windows Gallery as a scanner software?

Try this substitue and get back to me about how it's working

Can CanoScan be installed on two computers?

Most scanners including all-in-one printers can be shared acrossed a network. Hook up the scanner to one computer. At that computer, go into the control panel and to scanners (XP that would be printers and other hardware and then scanners). Right click on the CanoScan and click sharing. You can assign a name to the device. Go to other networked computer and add the device. You should be given an option to locate device on a network. Install the same driver and software you want to use with scanner.

Note: I'm not a Mac user, I've given instructions based on Windows XP/Vista. But, process should be similar.

Unable to install scanner

Cant find such a scanner, are you sure of the model "performance", If it is not Vista compatable, ie if Epson have not released a Vista driver, then it is not going to work with Vista.

See Epson web and download driver if available, if not change scanner or operating system or purchase software

Check your Epson product CD to see if it already contains Windows Vista drivers. If the CD indicates support for Windows Vista, follow the instructions that came with your Epson product to install your driver and other software.

If your Epson CD does not indicate support for Windows Vista, DO NOT INSERT YOUR EPSON PRODUCT SOFTWARE CD IN YOUR WINDOWS VISTA COMPUTER because the setup program is not compatible with Windows Vista. Instructions for installing additional software from your CD may be available with your driver download.

Note: If you already have ArcSoft PhotoImpression™ 5 installed on your Windows Vista computer, you may need to install a "patch" program. Go to the ArcSoft website to download and install the patch.

Products that are not Vista compatable are not capatable with Vista, who would figure hey!!

Drivers for Vista

With the Computer.
Go to Start/programs/accessories/system Tools/Compatibility and attempt to reset the computer to the Windows mode the Scanner was made for.

Be aware however that Scanners made for use with Win 95/98/ME operate under DOS commands and 2000/XP/Vista work on the NTFS system so there is a hardware not software problem.
You will I feel wind up buying a Vista Compatible Scanner
