Canon Scanner FB630U

I recently got a second hand scanner but unfortunatley dont have the software to get it started. It doesnt show any signs of power being connected, although it is connected via the usb cable to my pc.
i did down load a driver from the canon webiste, but no luck so far. where have i gone wrong?

I have the 660u

You need the Canon Scangear Toolbox software for your model. Unplug the usb cable, install the software (get it from their site), plug in the usb cable and it should detect the scanner then.

BTW, there are no signs of power until you start an actual scan.

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?
