    Hello jRock73

    You can find driver downloads for it HERE. The Vista drivers for this device support both 32 and 64 bit.

    However, the XP drivers don't mention either. You can find the manual for it HERE. However, I looked through it and saw no mention of what platforms it supported there either.

    Have you tried it on and XP 64-bit machine yet or are you considering purchasing one?

    You can go HERE and submit a technical inquiry if you like.

    HERE is a post on a forum re: someone having tried the original XP drivers unsuccessfully on a 64-bit machine. Some other things he tried (and found did not work) are listed there, too.

    If his analysis is accurate, it would appear that there are no 64-bit XP drivers for this device.

    * If the information I provided you w/
    * resolved your problem or lead you
    * to a resolution for your problem or
    * an answer to your question, then, a
    * "FixYa" rating would be most
    * appreciated. @:)
    * (You can assign the same rating to
    * more than one expert who participated
    * in solving your problem.)
    * It is best to wait until the problem
    * has been resolved b4 rating the experts'
    * solution(s). Once you enter a rating,
    * the problem will be closed and we will
    * not be able to continue to assist you.
    * Very often it will take more than one
    * exchange of information between you
    * and an expert in order to resolve your
    * problem. If a proposed solution doesn't
    * work for you, don't rate it yet. Instead,
    * post back here letting us know and we'll
    * continue to work w/ you until we find a
    * solution that does work for you.
    * Thank you

You might want to check out the post by ARIES HERE. He has some links there that might be helpful. They didn't work for TNYSTRAND but s/he may have had other issues.

The link to Ralink is broken on ARIES' post but you can find what s/he was referring to HERE.

    Hello jRock73

    How did it go? Did the information and links I provided you w/ enable you to determine your wireless adapter's compatibility on a 64-bit XP system?

    I DO hope that is the case. :) If it isn't, please, post back here and we'll continue to work w/ you.

    If it is the case, would you kindly take just a moment to assign a FIXYA rating for my "solution"? I would be very grateful for your generosity and show of appreciation.

    Thank you once again for using FixYa! Have a beautiful day.
    BJ @:)

Looking for driver MF5630 canon Win_64

I have spent hours to find a solution... there is no driver. But there are definitely 2 solutions:
1. MF5630 - using ONLY printer in Win 7 x64:
You have to use the drivers for MF5700 Series -

1. First, Click on the Start button in your screen, further click on Control Panel button and then double click on Devices and Printers button.
2. Then click on Add a Printer button in the menu.
3. Further select the Add a local printer button from the available menu.
4. Then choose an existing LPT port and click Next button .
5. Further select the correct driver from the driver list menu for your printer. Suppose if the requisite driver is not available then click on the Windows Update button. After the Windows 7 Update installation finishes in your computer, once again search for the appropriate driver for your printer.

2. FINAL SOLUTION - for printer and scanner - if you have proper PC configuration:)

Win7 has a possibility:

you can install the WIN XP environment where you can easily install driver for Canon MF 5630 (or any other by Win7 x64 not supported printer/scanner) and additional software.

BUT YOU NEED to run: Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions. Windows XP Mode is not supported on Windows 8.
Your BIOS must support Virtual Machine.
