    I found that for some reason if you use the Canoscan software that came with the scanner the scan will work in Vista. However, the Microsoft products refuse to recognize the scanner though.

    I just bought a new HP desk top computer with windows vista 64 and my Canoscan Lide 30 does not work, I tried loading the systems disk and it would not work, then plugged it in and it still doesn't work.



    Contacted canon support and they say they don't have drivers that support Windows Vista 64?!!!!!! What now I have a perfectly good scannor that I like very much and I cannot use it. Why????



    Can anyone help me?

    Canon CanoScan LiDE 30 Flatbed Scanner works in Vista using the canoscan toolbox but will not accenpt event responses from the front buttons. Vista says I have the latest driver so maybe it will never work unless Canon see fit to fix the driver.

    I am never buying another Cannon Scanner> Screw them! It will never work with Vista. I am switching to a Mac

That doesn't mean it's not compatible. Forget about the buttons. Install Toolbox. Run Toolbox and try to scan from there.

I got it to work! I just bought this off craigslist and was having some troubles with vista also. I downloaded the vista and the xp drivers and it didn't work at first. I ran the drivers and still nothing. Then i decided to unplug the pucky and plug it back in. Now photoshop recognises it when i go to "FILE", "Import". How odd but it's all good now.

    Now i checked the front buttons. Vista does not recognise this action. It doesn't matter if you have photoshop though. I had also found that photoshop doesn't let you edit the pictures until you close the scanner ap. either. Flawed driver but you can still get it to work.

I'm running Windows 7. Looked all over the web for a solution. Canon does not support its older equipment. I downloaded Ubuntu Linux, installed it and all the Canon stuff works perfectly.Now, I dual boot Windows & and Linux. I'm using Linux for 90% of my work and I don't pay for software.

There is no Windows 7 driver for my lide30 scanner.


Visit http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0000466.asp to download the Windows Vista drivers for the Canon CanoScan LiDE 30.You can try installing these using compatibility mode by right clicking on the downloaded files, and selecting 'troubleshoot compatibility' - select the option for 'worked in a previous version of windows' and then select vista

If this does not work, you should extract all of the downloaded files, press start, right click on 'my computer' select 'properties' and then click device manager. Right click on your unknown device and click 'update driver software' and then choose your extracted files to scan for the driver

Wont scan with new computer , uses vista


Unfortunatly there is no driver made by cannon to make this unit work with Windows Vista and they are not going to invent one either.

However did you use Vista to id the unit as a scanner and use Vista's Windows Gallery as a scanner software?

Try this substitue and get back to me about how it's working

I have a cnoscan Lide 30 flatbed scanner and have tried to load it on my new Acer computer with Vista and cannot get it to operate when I install the original Canoscan Lide 20/30 disk driver. Can you help...


You are correct, you will need to download 2 applications from the canon website in order to use your scanner.
you will need the drivers which are here
http://www.canon.ca/english/index-customersupportdownloads.asp
You will need to navigate to the downloads then select the model you have. The two programs are the LIDE Driver for windows then you will need to install the Toolbox software. you will require to reboot your computer between the installs so it's best to download both to your computer then install the LIDE and then the Toolbox.

Canoscan toolbox has stopped working


Vista is the laughing stock of IT pros everywhere.  Vista is truly the bastard child of Bill Gates.  Go on Canon web site and look for updated drivers to run on Vista or downgrade back to XP, which is more user friendly with peripherals.
