    I.m having the same problem with N656U, I would like to know if I should just give up and throw a perfectly good piece of hardware in the landfill? It seems a shame that we keep throwing things away that work fine.

Tom, your solution is incorrect. I have just got my Canoscan working fine with Vista, simply using Canon's official XP drivers and unpacking them in XP compatibility mode. Is working fine with just a bit of experimentation. (You need the Canon toolbox software too, all of which is available from canon.com)

Check out Vuescan. It allows you to use your scanner, but only within the program.

There are none out.
Email Canon and ask them if they are going to make VISTA drivers your scanner.

Normal 0 Download the scanner drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure you select the model of your scanner and the XP or Vista version of the drivers you that require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on your laptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

UMAX ASTRA 4100/4600 DRIVER FOR VISTA / WINDOWS 7


Hi,

I don't know about Windows 7, but I'm using my Astra 4600 on Windows Vista.

Umax said on its website that the Astra series of scanners are not supported for Windows Vista/7. I suppose this is to get us to buy new scanners...

I searched all around the internet for my driver, but couldn't get one. Finally I tried one more time using the CD that came with my scanner. Of course it doesn't work if you run Setup.exe from the CD --- it will just tell you that the OS is not supported. So I went to Device Manager and deleted the scanner under the "unknown USB device" section, and unplugged the scanner.

When I replugged the scanner, I let Vista install the driver automatically. Of course it couldn't, as Microsoft doesn't support it either. Then the install wizard asked me to put in the CD that came with the scanner. And that did the job! Vista was able to ignore the fact that the driver wasn't written specifically for Vista, and the scanner is working!

I hope you have the same luck with yours.

Happy new year.

Need software to install Canon Scanner N1220U with Windows Vista.


In the majority of cases where a Vista driver is not available on the website - the Windows XP Driver/software should work - you may need to tell it to run in compatibility mode though.

Connecting an older Minolta Dimage Elite film scanner to a newer computer running Windows Vista


Paul you might want to see if VueScan http://www.hamrick.com/ supports this particular scanner. It often allows older scanners to work on newer computers as it bypasses the Twain drivers.

I have a Memorex U48 Flat Bed Scanner and have bought a new compouter with Vista. I need a driver download to work with Windows Vista. Thanks [email protected]


get the winXP driver MEMu1.50 (still available), there are no Vista drivers. Run the installation using WinXP emulation in Vista. You must run the installation as if you are in XP, not necessary when using the scanner subsequently. Now the Memorex 48u works on a Dell Dimension, running Windows Vista Home Premium. Hope this helps. I got the scannner for $14 after rebates at Staples years ago, it won't die.
