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)

Windows Vista Drivers etc

You need to check that whether the scanner is compatiable with windows Vista or not.
If yes download the drivers for win vista for the scanner.

You have not provided the make and model number of the scanner otherwise i could have checked the same for you.

You may go to the manufacturers website of the scanner and you should get all this info there.
If you have any trouble provide me with the make and model number of the scanner.

Hope this helps
