Your problem is they don't have a 64bit driver. You need to contact Canon Technical support on their website and ask if they have a 64bit driver available yet or even a beta driver you can use. There drivers are 32bit. You can contact them here under support. Either click the link below or copy and paste it into your web browser.

I hope this helps you out if it does please give me a YES on the web page you have received my response on. Thank you

CanoScan 8000F Installation for Windows 8.1

Unfortunately, the Canon 8000F is not compatible with Windows 8.1. You can find this at Canon choose not to write a Windows 8 or 8.1 driver for this scanner. The changes between Windows 7 and 8 mean that the old driver won't work. The compatibility mode doesn't help in this case.

You have two choices: The cheapest option (if you buy a used machine): You can get a second computer with Windows 7 or an older version of Windows installed that does support the Canon 8000F. Alternatively, with a computer with more than 4GB of memory and a CPU that supports can support a virtual OS to buy 1) an upgrade to Windows 8.1 Pro and 2) a Windows 7 license and DVD. (This will cost at around $200 for Windows 7 Home Premium and the upgrade.) Then you can add the Hyper V feature and install Windows 7 as a virtual OS with at least 2 GB of your memory assigned to virtual OS. Install the scanner in that virtual computer.

I hope this helps.

My Canoscan 8000f now only produces a light green image in preview and scan mode. Have installed/uninstalled many times and this has not solved the problem. Wondering if it could be the lamp (broken?)....

I solved this problem twice with deep cleaning all the glasses and mirrors inside the machine, but not with first try.
Now, I have again the same probleme (after 1 year good working).
i'll try again ....

Canoscan Lide 30 compatibility with Windows 7.

There are no official drivers for CanoScan Lide 30 for Windows XP, so your problem is obvious. I suggest you sending an e-mail at Canon including details about your scanner (date purchased, serial number in text form or scanned) asking them to develop driver set as this model is very trade and at shops since 2006 or 2007.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

Is my canoscan 8000f vista compatable On the site of canon they state that the same driver can be used as for Windows XP. This is not true. Untill now, I found no way to get it working again.

You may have to install or update drivers Most of the drivers/software I get are from a web site you need to fill out a free registration then search for the driver you need download it in a format you can use install it and then most times reboot the computer
