Answer was simple- - -went to Canon Europe website, clicked downloads where there was one to facilitate running the scanner software on Visa. Should have thought of that in first place- - sorry to have troubled you.

Hi. I am looking for Vista drivers for the Canon DR-7080C. I see some on the Canon Europe website but it says I need to upgrade the firmware and I am not sure which version the scanner has already. Any...


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.

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 D646U ex for vista not compatible...how do I make it comatible?


If Canon does not provide a drive for Vista, then you cannot use the scanner with your Vista system.

I had the same problem with certain hardware when I upgraded from Win98SE to XP Pro 64 bit. I set up my computer for dual booting so that I can run both Win98SE and XP Pro.

Eventually I purchased compatible hardware however.

Twain error on cannon scan D646U on VISTA


The D646U is not compatible with Windows Vista. Call Canon and inquire about their Customer Loyalty Program. They let you upgrade to a more current scanner at a reduced price.

Vista 64 bit


The D660U is not supported in a 64 bit OS. Only the 32 bit version of Windows Vista is supported. You can get that driver here:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=6629

Let's face it, the D660U was released in September of 2000. That's nearly 7 years ago. You can say "Shame on all vendors" all you want. However, I'll bet that the computer you have Windows Vista64 running on is not the same computer you had when you bought the D660U. It's time to upgrade. The CanoScan 8800F is a great scanner. Amazingly fast too! Zero warm-up time.

Good luck.
