Could be a problem with the cables themselves. Try a new set or different set of cables and see if this resolves the issue. Also make sure that you installed the correct version of the driver for your OS.
Should you still have difficulties, try a clean boot as explained below:

(Just replace "camera" in the procedure for scanner.)

You can download the driver for your scanner from Canon here : http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_d646u#DriversAndSoftware Simply select windows XP from the pull down operating system menu, then click 'drivers' and download the driver.
Next, make sure the scanner is unplugged from your system, and run the driver install program, once it is finished, or when prompted by the driver install, plug in your scanner and it should be recognized by the system.

I run windows 7, but I cannot get the driver for my scanner - Canoscan D646u ex (yes, i know, its a dinosaur -- but its not broken)


Unfortunately , the production of drivers stops at W XP .
If you have the W XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of W XP on your machine from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/
If you still have the install disc , you can also partition your primary and install W XP on the new partition from http://download.cnet.com/Partition-Wizard-Home-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html. Easy and safe , no specific knowledge required .

Canoscan D646U ex not working on windows vista os


That is because their is no VISTA driver written for that model,because that model was not made for the VISTA OS. If you were told it would work,they were wrong. It is unlikely that CANON wil ever have a driver written for VISTA for an older model,but it could happen,especially if enough people wrote to ask for it?
