Question about Canon CanoScan N650U Flatbed Scanner
I've got a new computer and it's vista windows, i am now having problem installing my scanner on this computer
Ok, I think I managed to get my Canoscan N650U working with Vista using the XP drivers from the Canon website.
Download the drivers and extract all the files to a directory on your PC.
Connect the scanner, the popup will appear saying found new hardware, normally it wants the files from the CD, but there is an option to find the drivers at a particular location, choose that and point it to where you downloaded the XP Canoscan drivers. Let it install. You should then see it in control panel and can test it OK.

You are right . The Vista drivers are not available, however the australian download for an XP driver works for some people. I would advise you to go to this site
And do a clean download of the driver for XP and follow all instructions.
How to do a clean download?
Uninstall the current software
Turn off the machine and unplug it
Turn off all your running programs including your virus control
(look in the lower right corner and click on each little icon there and turn off everything you can)
Now download the driver and SAVE it to your desktop
Click on it to install and follow the directions carefully. When it is finished, if it has not told you to reconnect your printer, do so now.
Restart your computer.
Good Luck. Please let me know if this works and rate my solution. Thank You.
