The thing that you need to do is go to the company site. Go to the company site that made the scanner to download the drivers. If they do not have a driver for XP then you are out of luck.

    Did you solve your problem? Let me know if you are still having problems so I can help you more. If you can't find the driver let me know.
    Give me the make and model of the scanner and I will try to find it for you. I will also need to know the O.S. that you are using.
    You can try the driversguide site if the company no longer has it.

    Look on
    the Company site under drivers and downloads. You will have to put in
    your model first and then the serial number sometimes. After you find your
    product you will find the drivers and more programs if they have any.

    After you download the driver you might have to put it in a folder for
    it to be stored in. After you put it in a folder, unzip it in that folder
    and it should have an .exe file. Click on this and it should do the
    install. If it does not do your install you can go to the Device manager
    and click on the device and tell it to install or upgrade the driver.
    Then you will need to direct it to the folder where you have the unzipped
    file. This should correct your problem.

    You can click on my name from now on and I will do my best to answer your
    question within a day.

    can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a
    fixya. I did more than try; I sent you exactly to where you could get the
    driver and explained how to install it.

    If you print out these directions you should never have any problem with a
    driver again.

Why can't I download my CANO SCAN set up CD-Rom on to my new Windows 7

The CD-ROM has the installers for older versions of Windows. The installation routines for the newer versions of Windows have changed considerably from those that were in use when the CD was written. You can get the drivers and Canon Toolbox software for the scanner from Canon: . Select Windows 7 in the dropdown menu. The software will work with any version of Windows 7.

The only exception is that the third-party software is not available for downloads. If you want to use the original CD software (assuming the disc is undamaged) and you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can download and install Virtual PC and XP mode for a free XP virtual computer. Then install the scanner to the "XP computer" as you normally would. However, the virtual computer and the Win7 computer cannot both have the hardware installed simultaneously. So to share files, you may need to save them to external media (optical or hard drive). If you have one of the other versions of Windows 7, you can do the same thing with any virtual PC program and a licensed older version of Windows.

I hope this helps.
