Just for information, I have a Canon LiDE 50 scanner and it seems that Canon will not be making a Vista 64bit driver for it, as I'm presuming it's too old.

Just tried to use the Vista 64bit driver for the Canon LiDE 60 scanner and that works perfectly.

I got it working. You have to force it use the LiDE 60 driver by choosing 'Have Disk' / 'Select from a list' It's been working perfectly for two weeks with no instability.

I can't understand why Canon doesn't have an official driver since it's obviously very similar to the LiDE 60.

Thanks for this!
I went to Control Panel > System > Device Manager
The scanner was with a '!' under "Other devices"

Properties and Driver update.... and as you guys said, force it to use the LiDE 60 driver.

THANKS!


As an aside... isn't anyone else amazed at the jump from the previous version?
Or was I using an out-of-date one in my wXP install?
I remember a crappy interface, that didn't remember settings, with almost no options.
Yet it worked. Have to give them that.

New one is much nicer.

Thanks for the forums!
Hi5!
