Question about Canon DR 2080C Path-Through Scanner

2 Answers

Incompatible with Vista 64-bit

This post to tell you about my mistakes. I love this scanner, used it a lot, then changed to a Vista 64-bit system and nothing works.

Canon offers three upgrade downloads. One (2080FIRMWARE.exe) is simply to check if you purchased version 3.0 of the CapturePerfect software ($100!). I actually paid for it, installed the other two driver upgrades and... still does not work. The scanner does not appear on the list. Now, it's as good as garbage and I am angry.

    same problem. i find it hard to grasp how Cannon can obsolete a relatively high end consumer scanner by just failing to provide 64bit drivers.

    Dittos on the problem!
    Canon is going cheap by not putting out drivers & software to work with new computers. 64 bit systems is only the start of the newer systems in the works to be released to the public... Perhaps if enough people complain they will get off their lazy back sides and start to work on a fix for us...

    I have Vista 64 Bit and I use the scanner from Acrobat and it appears to work ok except it seams my scanner may be a bit off. It doesn't scan multiple pages at once well,(gets jammed alot) and has black margins on each side of the scanned pages. Is there a way to adjust the scanner? or does it require cleaning, repair, etc?

The 64-bit Vista driver can be downloaded via Canon Japanese site: http://download.canon.jp/pub/driver/dr/dr2080c_drv23.exe.

But I can't find a free way to upgrade Capture Perfect 2.3 to 64 bit. I may have to use a virtual machine to scan, which is pain in the neck. If you have success with this driver and Capture Perfect 3.0 on a 64-bit OS, please report back. Thanks.

Canon Canoscan LiDE 25 shows "USB device not recognized" on Vista Home Premium 32-bit


Point # 1 : Electronic devices are not made to be used sparingly or stored for long periods of time.

Point # 2 : 5-6 years is not 'barely' in-terms of an electronic device's lifetime (Given that the warranty for your device is about 1 year !).

Point # 3 : You obviously tried almost everything on the computer site of this issue, Its time to take your device to a service center.

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)

CanoScan N1220U Scanner Windows 7 64-bit Driver


You may use Hamrick VueScan Pro, it installs a driver that makes 1220 to work. Or, if the version of Windows 7 you use support XP Mode, install it.

It's still a good scanner, and mine is working in 7 x64 using XP Mode!

Vista driver for visioneer 4400 USB scanner


Here is what worked for me. I have 32 bit Windows Vista. I do not think that this will work on a 64 bit Vista, as I don't think that a 32 bit driver will work on the 64 bit Vista.

Go to this URL:

http://support.visioneer.com/products/4400/downloads.asp

And download the 4400.303110.exe file to your computer.

Next: Click on "Start Search", and paste in
"mshta.exe res://acprgwiz.dll/compatmode.hta" without the quotes.
This will start the "Program Compatibility Wizard"

NOTE: The "Start Search" will appear when you click on the round Windows button at the lower left hand side of your Windows Vista desktop. It's right under "All Programs". Just paste that command in that box.

Then, just follow through.
When prompted for the program to run, select
"I want to locate the program manually" and point to the driver setup file you want to execute, which will be the file that you just downloaded.

Under the page that says to "Select a compatibility mode for the program"

Choose: 'Microsoft Windows XP (Service Pack 2)'

You don't have to select anything on the "Select display settings for the program" page.

On the next page, select "Run this program as an administrator".

You should be all set to go. I did see one complaint about a missing dll file, but it worked anyway.

Many thanks go the the people who really contributed to this fix:

They posted a lot of good information on this Microsoft forum:

Windows vista 64 bit driver


Hi mtrump1,

Thanks for your posting in FixYa.

The driver are available on the Canon Website, use this link to get it:

http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0000441.asp

or

For Vista 64 Bit you can try:
http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/SCANNER-Digital-CAMERA-WEBCAM/CANON/Canon-CanoScan-D1230U-611c.shtml


But i think both should be compatible to run in any 32 or 64 bit environment.

Regards
ELLIN

you might want to check on uninstalling this again
