    You can try a software called "vuescan". It supports lots of scanner. It
    might work for yours. It comes with a driver for vista as well.

    My Canon FB630U scanner works just fine using the XP drivers (on x86
    anyway). When I get round to upgrading to 64bit I fully expect to have to
    buy a new scanner.

    Thank You -

    I had emailed Canon and was advised that they were not going to produce new
    drivers. And that the scanner would not work in Vista. I was then offered
    a discount on a new scanner direct from Canon. Kind of a shabby way to go
    about securing the sale of my next $ 50 scanner.

    I have my very very odl HP SJ5P scanner scsi connected working fine
    under VISTA -- VISTA found it and the Apaptec 19160 scsi controller it
    is attached to. Both appear in Device Manager with no flags but I could
    not scan.

    I then did what I did in W2K and XP and installed the old HP Deskscan
    2.9 software and bingo it is up and running.

    I suggest you try this and don't always believe the manufacturers when
    they tell you their product does not work!

    My FB620U works in Vista 32-bit as well; I scanned in some pictures this
    weekend, in fact.. I believe I had to run through the XP drivers as well.

    Installed a Canon FB620U in Vista Ultimate and it scnas into Office scan
    just fine. Vista Fax & Scan does not see the scanner. Any ideas
    appreciated.

    Just be grateful it works at all?

    Keep an eye open for driver updates from Canaon?

    Yes I'm grateful but I really expected more for my $29 seven years ago.

    Re: Canon FB620U Scanner


    I know the feeling but sometimes one is getting a message that there is
    something out there we want and now we have an excuse to get it <g>

    Sounds like you are using TWAIN like I am and I don't know how to have
    the scanner start from that Fax & Scan area. It's not something I've
    needed since I have a free-standing fax machine and can scan from
    Deskscan.
