SOURCE: CanoScan N1220U - Vista Driver
You are right . The Vista drivers are not available, however the australian download for an XP driver works for some people. I would advise you to go to this site
And do a clean download of the driver for XP and follow all instructions.
How to do a clean download?
Uninstall the current software
Turn off the machine and unplug it
Turn off all your running programs including your virus control
(look in the lower right corner and click on each little icon there and turn off everything you can)
Now download the driver and SAVE it to your desktop
Click on it to install and follow the directions carefully. When it is finished, if it has not told you to reconnect your printer, do so now.
Restart your computer.
Good Luck. Please let me know if this works and rate my solution. Thank You.

In the majority of cases where a Vista driver is not available on the website - the Windows XP Driver/software should work - you may need to tell it to run in compatibility mode though.

You may use Hamrick VueScan Pro, it installs a driver that makes 1220 to work. Or, if the version of Windows 7 you use support XP Mode, install it.
It's still a good scanner, and mine is working in 7 x64 using XP Mode!

the only successful method I found for using CanoScan D1250U2F in 64 bit Windows 7 (I guess the same would be for 64 bit Vista) is to use Windows XP Mode in Virtual PC (attach the scanner as USB device and that's it - works perfectly)
I had a problem with Windows 7 detecting the device as CanoScan (needed for Windows XP Mode to detect is as USB device and allow attach) - the solution was to unplug the scanner, plug it in and CANCEL Windows 7 hardware detection process before it finishes - this leaves it as "CanoScan" device (auto-detect will leave it as "Unrecognized device" and with that unusable/un-attachable in Windows XP Mode)
latest versions of Windows XP Mode will make your hard drives accessible as network locations (no need for external media)
