It seems Canon have the same policy regarding my scanner LIDE 20. Very old but still worked under W2000. Not a hope under W7. Just a plain "no" on their website but elsewhere I found that pretending it is a LIDE60 works.
Right that is the preamble now to the problem.
Finally got the right drivers (and the right canon toolbox which is vital apparently) but somehow the scanner does not work. Here are the symptoms
- The buttons on the front of the scanner just don't work
- Using Capture within Photoshop freezes the application with "Server Busy" error message with option to switch to other program (there isn't one) which just cycles round and I need to go to Task Manager to close the application
- Right clicking the device in Device manager produces a "This device requires WIA Driver" message. WIA service is definitely working
- Finally the device is linked to TWAIN32 drivers even though I have loaded the right 64 ones
