If this scanner was previously used on a Win95/8/ME system the likely hood of it working with and NTFS[3000/XP] system is slim. This is because the two system work in different ways and the scanner design for 95/8 does not recognise commands from a NTFS computer. Two thing to try Go to Mt computer/Help/Compatibility and read it up. then right click on the scanner software and click on properties/compatibility and set it to Win98- see what happens You could checkout ACER for driver updates also. But don't hold your breath

Looking for driver MF5630 canon Win_64


I have spent hours to find a solution... there is no driver. But there are definitely 2 solutions:
1. MF5630 - using ONLY printer in Win 7 x64:
You have to use the drivers for MF5700 Series - http://driverscollection.com/?file_cid=4213082682609f383f81540957d

- http://www.techulator.com/resources/4156-How-add-Printer-manually-your-Windows.aspx
1. First, Click on the Start button in your screen, further click on Control Panel button and then double click on Devices and Printers button.
2. Then click on Add a Printer button in the menu.
3. Further select the Add a local printer button from the available menu.
4. Then choose an existing LPT port and click Next button .
5. Further select the correct driver from the driver list menu for your printer. Suppose if the requisite driver is not available then click on the Windows Update button. After the Windows 7 Update installation finishes in your computer, once again search for the appropriate driver for your printer.

2. FINAL SOLUTION - for printer and scanner - if you have proper PC configuration:)

Win7 has a possibility: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/install-and-use-windows-xp-mode-in-windows-7

you can install the WIN XP environment where you can easily install driver for Canon MF 5630 (or any other by Win7 x64 not supported printer/scanner) and additional software.

BUT YOU NEED to run: Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions. Windows XP Mode is not supported on Windows 8.
Your BIOS must support Virtual Machine.

Scanner doesnt have a driver for windows 7


This may help. Depending on your version of windows 7 you may be able to run Windows XP as a virtual machine and still user your scanner under XP Mode. You will have to install the XP driver for your scanner on the XP virtual machine running on your Windows 7 computer.

Windows 7 has several built-in tools to help with program compatibility and Windows XP programs should be installed directly on Windows 7. Windows XP Mode runs many older Windows XP productivity programs and that are not natively compatible with Windows 7, thus helping realize cost savings and reduce possible operational downtime by extending the life of existing software.

HERE is the direct link to instructions on downloading and using XP Mode on Windows 7

We have a TEAC FD-05PUB external floppy drive that we are unable to run - system is Windows xp - we can connect to other PCs and it works fine. Thought perhaps it was the drivers but unable to located any...


The USB Floppy Drive shouldn't require drivers under Windows XP (according to TEAC, here: http://goo.gl/BvTcV).
Make sure your Windows XP installation is completely up to date, as Windows Updates often contain driver updates as well as system updates. If this still doesn't work (or your system is already completely updated), there are some additional troubleshooting options here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283658.

My XP PC crashed, and I am now using a Windows 7 64-bit laptop. I tried to install the set up CD, but it said it is compatible up to XP, 32-bit. Is there an updated driver so I could use it with this...


hello


the flat bed scanner will not work properly because the driver you have is for windows xp, you have to download the driver for that scanner which support windows 7, got to the website of cannon and find your device and driver supported with windows 7, plug in you scanner and make full update your system and windows will update the driver of your scanner.


thank you

Scanner not working


There is not a driver available for Windows 7. One thing you can try is to run the software in windows XP compatibility mode if your version of Windows has it. When you go to run the software disc for the scanner goto my computer and right-click on the icon then click properties. You can then set the compatibility mode to run on XP. Then run the software by double left click on the icon after you have set the compatibilty mode for XP. I cannot guarantee this will work but it is worth a try. If you download the software to the desktop the process is the same.

Where can I download a driver that will work in Vista for my Minolta Dimage Scan Elite 5400?


Unfortunately support for your model has been discontinued. The most recent driver is here

http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/americas/scanners/dimage-scanners/dimage-scanelite_5400/software_drivers/drivers/ver115_win.html

but only supports officially up to Windows XP.

If the driver does not work in XP SP3 and Vista, this may be due to full system access being required by the driver and/or its ancillary userspace software.

You can either try running it as Administrator, configure for XP or 2000 compatibility, or if nothing else works, you may be forced to install VMware or Microsoft VirtualPC and virtualize an ad hoc installation of Windows XP SP2 with updates inhibited, in order to be able to run the scanner. In enterprise environments whole PCs are often set aside to run outdated operative systems in a controlled environment; you may do the same thing with only one PC and VMware.

Win XP PC does not recognise my SJ 5300C USB scanner


first thing i would do is go to the control panel and see if theres any thing in the camera and scanner profile. Then go to the manufactures site and see if theres an updated driver for the printer. if so download the new driver then see if it recconizes the scanner. if that still does not work then you may have to run it in a different compatability mode. good luck

If upgrading an existing PC to Windows XP from an earlier versionof Windows, Canon recommends a "clean install" to ensure reliableoperation of drivers. If a clean install is not possible, it isessential that drivers for your existing Canon Hardware are UNINSTALLEDprior to upgrading to Windows XP. After the installation of Windows XP,the drivers for your Canon Hardware can then be re-installed. Canon has released a software utility to uninstall USB and SCSI Scanner drivers for this purpose. Click here to download this utility.It is recommended to consult our Driver Downloads page and use the latest driver for your product. Canon supports several scanner models with Windows XP. Windows XPsupport is offered for Windows XP Home Edition, and Windows XPProfessional.The following older models are not compatible with Windows XPdue to hardware design: IX-3010, IX-4015, IX-4025, CS 300S, FB310,FB61

Software upgrade?


It works fine on XP, I am using it with XP SP3 currently. You should download the current driver from Minolta. Install the software before hooking up the scanner. I prefer to remove any existing drivers and re-boot before installing new drivers.
