Hi There,
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_fb_630u#DriversAndSoftware

At the above site you will see that your scanner is only supported with Drivers up to XP, unfortunately.

Sorry about the bad news.

Regards,

Marcus

My cannon canoscan lide 20 lide 30 driver,dose not install with windows 7


Do you have the 32-bit OS or the 64-bit OS? The Canon drivers will work in 32-bit Win7. However, Canon doesn't support these scanners in the 64-bit OS. The only way to make the scanner work in the 64-bit OS is to run either a dual boot system or a virtual computer with a supported OS. The Vista x64 bit driver doesn't work even if you use the compatibility mode.

If you have Win7 Ultimate, you can download Microsoft's Virtual PC and the XP mode for free. All other virtualization software options (Virtual PC, Parallels, VMWare) require a paid (licensed) version of the OS. Then install the scanner in the virtual computer and transfer files to external media to share it with the main computer. Dual boot systems have the same restriction of needing a valid OS.

I'm not aware of any Canon drivers for this scanner under UNIX.

I wish that I could be of more help.

I cant install canoscan fb630u to my computer.(windows vista)


http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0000461.asp
as of the above site NO, No you cannot.

The best you MAY be able to do is to install in compatibility mode, for XP SP2, Run as and install as Administrator.
XP driver below.

Where can I find Driver for my Canon ( CanoScan 3000 / 3000F) for Windows 7 ??


Canon has a driver for Vista 32-bit here: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=235&modelid=8741#DownloadDetailAct . This might work in Win7 32-bit (possibly you will need the compatibility mode - right click on the driver and choose properties and the Compatibility tab.).

However, Canon has no 64-bit Vista support and no Win7 drivers and no plans to update the drivers for Win7. You can try a generic scanner driver from the OS - chose a TWAIN driver.

I wish that I could be more help.

No driver for Canoscan FB 630U 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)

This solution will cost you a bit (and given the low price of some new or reconditioned all-in-ones these days, you may not think it worth it), but the user interface is better, IMHO, than the CanoScan Toolbox and, by Jeezly, the thing just WORKS. After I installed it, I unplugged my FB630U, plugged it back in again, and BOOM!, Vista said that it had installed the driver. I was so tickled, I promptly bought the more expensive version of the software, and my good ol' CanoScan is scanning again. Check out VueScan from http://www.hamrick.com/. The unpurchased download adds watermarks, but you can at least try before you buy. Now why the hell can't Canon come up with a driver for its own scanner?

CanoScan Vs. Windows Vista


Tom, your solution is incorrect. I have just got my Canoscan working fine with Vista, simply using Canon's official XP drivers and unpacking them in XP compatibility mode. Is working fine with just a bit of experimentation. (You need the Canon toolbox software too, all of which is available from canon.com)
