Thanks for the quick response. Are you referring to the Vuescan software or the Canon Europe software?
As a trial I downloaded the package from Canon Europe but it wouldn't install on an XP laptop I would have been willing to use for a while, although it is very old and is getting a little sick. Several other folks say they tried this and they also had trouble with the install which asked for a CD.
I have moved cross-country since my scanner last worked and my main XP computer just got too sick to keep up so I bought a new HP at a great price and it had Win 7 on it. I have not been able to find the original CD since the move, and of course there were updates that had been released since the original install.
Can you clarify which software you used and what version of Win 7 you have?
My scanner is a Canoscan D1230U and I like it's features because in addition to flat scans I use 35mm slides and negatives, and 2 1/4" slides and negatives and have made holders for all combinations.
Sorry to be so wordy but I'm getting close to buying an Epson 600 Scanner as a last resort. Not in my budget but I have so much old stuff to scan for my family (as they grew up and became parents and grandparents themselves).
