Question about Canon CanoScan FB630U Flatbed Scanner
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 http://www.hamrick.com/. 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?

Unfortunately Henru's fix for the FB630U is a deadend.
The US Canon site has this notice:
Products or models that are not listed in the menus below are currently not supported in Windows Vista™ or will be supported soon in Windows Vista™. Canon aspires to provide the most up-to-date information on Canon drivers and software. Please check back soon for updates.

this is a german driver, if u want your CanoScan FB630u run under VISTA try this one, it worked for me... if u can't reach this site search under http://software.canon-europe.com. u have to find the XP Scan Gear (Twain) 5.3.2, download it and install it through the system control -> device manager by clicking on your scanner device and "search for driver manually"
The XP driver is working for vista,too.
hope i could help everyone whos searching for a driver after me ;)
