Sorry, there are NO Visioneer drivers available for your scanner. Unfortunately, that model was one too soon for them to develop the drivers since it's been discontinued a while back.

However, within Vista Support, there are ways to install the scanner and while you may lose some functionality, you should be able to scan, at the very least, pictures -- IF Vista has 'generic' Visioneer-type drivers within it database. (Meaning, when you plugged it in to the computer and turned it on, did it find the scanner, but not the EXACT model? If it found A scanner, I'd let it install those drivers to see if you can get it to scan, etc. through the Photo Gallery, etc.)

IF you're successful with Vista recognizing the scanner, you would go through Vista's Window's Photo Gallery and/or Window's Fax and Scan -- as well as downloading 3rd party OCR software (like AbbyReader) and/or TWAIN drivers that are compatible (another whole level of "technical"!)

If none of the above works you may want to replace the scanner with one that's supported.

Good Luck!

Hello, I have a BenQ S2W 3000U FlatBed Scanner and want to use it with Windows Vista but do not have the driver. Please how do I get one?


Sorry, it seems no Vista / 7 drivers are available at the BenQ site.
Let Windows try to find it, otherwise use an older PC for scanning.

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)

Will not work with Vista operation system


Correct. There is no easy solution for this issue. Several of the "older" scanners are no longer supported through the Vista operating system. Why not purchase a new multi function printer, scanner, fax and copier unit.. you will not locate vista drivers either online or from the manufacturer and without them, the scanner will not function. Alternatively, you could also roll back or re-install Windows XP operating system..

Vista is ......? flatbed SZW scanner 3300U driver failure


If its not compatible with vista there is no fix for that. I have a Canoon LIDE 60 and it works great with Vista. Bought it as clearance at staples for $40. Take it back where you bought it and get a refund. If you purchse any newer scanner within the last 2-3 years it will be comptible with Vista. Be leary of any software you buy that's more then 3 years old as it may not be Vista compatible.

There are two common ways to software-connect scanners
to windows:

1) The TWAIN driver interface
2) The WIA (Windows image acquisition) driver interface

===========================================
WIA is a driver interface native to Windows:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Image_Acquisition

TWAIN is a driver interface specific to each scanner
===========================================

Most new scanners should support both driver interfaces !

TWAIN is preferable, if you can find it, because it is tightly
coupled to the scanner's hardware design, and therefore offers
more functionality, which is hardware specific.

WIA, on the other hand, is more generic.
It will work with many different scanners, but with reduced
functionality, especially in the tools and setting available within
the scanner control window that pops up every time you try to
scan a document from within an application.

If you cannot find TWAIN, you may have to settle for WIA.
(if it will run with your hardware)
=====

This biggest problem, of course, is VISTA itself, and it comes
in two flavors, depending on your computer CPU:
64-bit and 32 bit.

64-Bit Vista drivers are the hardest to find.
32-Bit Vista is a DOG, because the software is too bloated
to run on a 32 bit machine.

Fancy colors and GUI not withstanding, 100% of the added
"new functionality" within Vista is for the benefit of Microsoft
and the scumbags running Hollywood. Vista hi-jacks your
expensive hardware resources and slows down "YOUR"
machine at "YOUR" expense to promote Microsoft's
insestuous relationship with the Sony movie studios and
the RIAA.

I strongly recommend to all my clients to stick with XP for
now, and avoid Vista like the plague.

I do !

CanoScan Vs. Windows Vista


Tom, your solution is incorrect. I have just got my Canoscan working fine with Vista, simply using Canon's official XP drivers and unpacking them in XP compatibility mode. Is working fine with just a bit of experimentation. (You need the Canon toolbox software too, all of which is available from canon.com)
