Windows 7: Canon 3200F Scanner trouble

Canon 3200F Scanner trouble

Just wondering if anybody can help. I have a Canon 3200F scanner which I can't get working on 7 RC 32-bit.
I have downloaded the driver from Canon, installed it and nothing really happened. I then discovered that I needed to install a WIA driver, which I downloaded. But when I try to install it 7 says it may not have installed properly.
The scanner now shows up on the import list under Photoshop CS4, but when I select it to import it then stalls for a short time then tells me it can't connect, and to check the leads etc.

Anyone got any ideas.

Thanks in advance for any help and sorry it's a bit of a long post.

You should be able to get it to work for now by using Canon's own Canoscan Toolbox software, and you can select it to open its scans in Photoshop afterward, for example. It's an indirect route, but it's the way to get it to work.

Otherwise last I heard/read was Canon expects to release Windows 7 drivers/software for its products once the OS is officially released in October.

My own fingers are crossed I'm not permanently doing workarounds and/or in the market for a new scanner and printer. My "old" Canon ones were still working just fine for my own purposes otherwise.
