I have many years of repairing Canon scanners and here is my suggestion to you.

You can also get them on the US site also, I will include the link for the drivers in this response. The problem your going to have is that to upgrade your firmware you need a piece of software to upgrade the firmware on your scanner. That piece of software is only released to canon dealers and its also used for diagnostic's of your scanner and to make adjustments to your scanner. I would contact your local Canon dealer, and ask what they would charge you if they came out to do this service for you, or what would they charge you if you brought the scanner to them to cut down on the cost of this very simple update. It only takes a couple of minutes to upgrade your firmware on your scanner. Below is the link to Canon's website for the files you need. I hope this helps you out.

DR-6080 not recognised after reloading Windows 7 (32-bit) on laptop. Re-installed latest driver (says Win7 supported) successfully but still won't work, Anything?

Disconnect the scanner from the computer. Uninstall driver software, shut down and restart the Comp. Reinstall the driver. ( ). connect the scanner and the system will report USB device plugged in. This should work.

If the 'noise' is in the same place with varying intensity it is definitely dirt on the glass. Clean with Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing Alcohol). Dont use any solvent.

Win 7 cannot create problems like freezing. It is lot more stable than XP. (I havent tried CapturePerfect with Win 7, but I feel it should work).

Vista & Canon DR-3020

As per CAnon Europe site, it looks only version 3 of CapturePerfect works in Vist environment. What version do you use?
There is no mention about ISIS/TWAIN Drivers. In case you can load the drivers, you can try Microsoft Imaging to scan instead of CapturePerfect.
