    Works fine for me... have you downloaded the Win 7 64-bit drivers from
    the Canon site?

    Thank you I have loaded drivers ok, the scanner is seen in devices,
    but in the canoscan toolbox my scanner is not seen any ideas ?

    Is it attached to a USB port on the PC itself? ISTR they're not very
    happy on USB hubs (not even powered ones).

    Does it appear under Imaging devices in Device Manager (Control Panel
    -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Device Manager)? Try
    'scan for hardware changes'.

    Appears under imaging devices in device manager and reports all
    working. connected directly to the PC.

    When I turn the pc on, the Scanner clicks and the bar moves a little.
    its seen by the PC OK , not by the canoscan toolbox or by the scan
    program that is part of windows 7.

    Hmm - not sure what else to suggest. The clicking and moving on
    boot-up is hopeful, as mine does that, too. Oddly, Windows Fax & Scan
    doesn't find my scanner, but CanoScan Toolbox certainly does.

    The only other thing I can think of is to download the trial version
    of Vuescan ( - and see if that recognises your
    scanner. Again, like CanoScan, it works fine with my scanner.

    The shortcut to mine says it's 4.9 - but whatever, it's what I
    downloaded from the Canon when I installed Win 7 64 bit. (And that
    was only a couple of months ago.)
