Windows 7: Canon LiDE 200 64-bit scanner driver problem

Canon LiDE 200 64-bit scanner driver problem

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I have a Canon LiDE 200 scanner with an older driver. I found a newer 64-bit driver on the Canon website, but after installing it nothing changes with the driver—it's still the same old driver I had before. I have tried uninstalling the scanner (in Safe Mode) and then restarting the computer, but it doesn't change anything. The new driver from Canon is just an executable and so it runs and installs itself somewhere, although when I check in Device Manager the old driver is still there.

I would appreciate any help someone could give me in updating my scanner to the new 64-bit driver.

Thanks.

I finally figured out how to scan my drawings/images back into PS. CS6 does not install several legacy (pre-CS4) plug-ins, extensions, and presets, including TWAIN. You can download the optional TWAIN plug-in at the Adobe website, for both Mac and Windows. For CS6, I placed the TWAIN.plugin file inside my Photoshop Plug-ins folder. Now if you have CS6 (on Windows 7) it comes with two versions of Photoshop—one is in the Program Files folder (64-bit) and the other is in the Program Files (x84) folder (32-bit). I opened Windows Explorer and navigated to the PS plug-ins folder in Program Files (x86), then I restarted Photoshop. Voila! Problem solved! I can now scan from my Canon LiDE via the PS File > Import menu.

I just discovered another option. Using either PS 64- or 32-bit you can choose File > Import > WIA Support and this will enable you to scan images and open them right in PS, too.

Try VueScan from VueScan Scanner Software for Windows 8, Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), Linux, iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android. I am using it for my LiDE 35 on Windows 7 64 bit.
