Question about Canon CanoScan FB630U Flatbed Scanner
Need driver for Canoscan FB 630U running on 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)

Ooh i really feel bad for you! vista 64 bit operating system fails at almost everything. the only way you are going to fix this is if you reload your laptop with windows xp professional or ultimate 32 bit, or windows 7 pro or ultimate 64 or 32 bit. never use vista as an operating system. its the reason people switch to macs. its exactly the same as windows CE or windows ME. please dont waste your time looking for drivers for vista 64 bit. you wont find any that function correctly. reload you OS
