Canon LBP 3000 64bit driver? Help please

Can't get my Canon mono Lasershot lbp3000 to install, as Windows 7 says driver(vista) not correct version of OS. Any ideas or workarounds that others have used to install Vista drivers on 7, until Canon get to writing 64bit drivers for 7? I have searched for the drivers on MS site but cannot find any.
Printer is usb and shows up in control panel as "UNSPECIFIED(1)- Canon CAPT USB Device".
My setup is Intel Core2quad Q8200@2.33GHz, Asus p5q-em mobo, 4Gb 800MHz ram, 300Gb SATa Samsung HDD, onboard graphics.
My XP driver for my Canon MP520 printer works fine.

I'm much in the same boat as I own the same printer... Such a shame to actually have to throw it out and upgrade to something that's running compatible drivers as it's a great little printer.

Anyhow I don't like your chances of waiting for Canon to release 64bit drivers for the LBP3000. - Windows 7 support most likely won't exist either.

I too have angered the printer gods. Lexmark 4800 all in one series.
Software installs but doesn't function. I've done multiple installs by various methods. It worked for a while. Now the bios nor windows can find the card readers. Causes and extremely long boot. Unplug the USB cable and my computer boots just fine. Scanner works with Win 7 and I can print. I don't think I can depend on Lexmark to make drivers available any time soon if ever. Their install software doesn't have any driver files that are available to manually install. There all wrapped up in the execution of their software interface. Couldn't find any at MS or any where else. Looks like I'm in the market for a new printer. What all in ones out there are working with Win 7? May be I should hold off untill Nov or Dec. Any suggestions? Suicide is not an option.

I'm sadly having to upgrade to a Colour laser to get around my issues... Most of the HP's are compatible without any grief. (both 32bit & 64)... I haven't checked for Windows 7 compatibility yet though

Thanks mickymac and HammerHead for taking the time to comment. We may have to wait for the retail version of 7, as MS may port the Vista drivers to the OS. My multi-function Canon 520 works well as a printer, but the beaut photo set-up software does the "not compatible" sulk and goes on holiday, so it is back to the so slow XP on dual boot for that work, and for multiple copies of mono printing on the 3000. I considered upgrading 7 over Vista on our little used laptop and using it in the lounge room as a networked Media Centre to access my media on our HDDs, but now it will go onto the spare desk in the study and connect to the Canon laser, and the to the router via cable, rather than via wireless.

Canon LBP Driver 64 Bit

I likewise decided that I was so happy with Windows 7 32 bit that I would move to the 64 bit version as it should be faster.

Unfortunately there was only one piece of hardware that would not work and that was my great little laser canon LBP 3000 printer. This is not that old so I am most disappointed that there isn't a 64 bit driver for it.

If Microsoft or Canon read this forum then please do something to resolve this issue. I won't move to 64 bit now until I can get this problem resolved.

I received the following from Canon:

Thank you for contacting Canon.

I am sorry to hear that you are having difficulty with your Canon product.

With reference to your enquiry, I can only apologise for the delay of providing support for your product. I can confirm that the LBP3000 will be compatible with Windows 7 OS 32 and 64 bit. However, there has been a delay in the release of support drivers for Windows 7. Our development centre are releasing drivers etc for supported products on a daily basis however, there is no indication as to when a full release will be completed, or even a schedule of when products will be released. It is just a matter of checking the download page for your product on a regular basis. The download page can be accessed via the following link:

http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010176.asp

You will need to select Operating System (Windows 7) and Language (English) and then submit. I apologise for the inconvenience.

I also note that on their website they have updated their drivers for the LBP3000 printer as of the 13/11/2009 but there is nothing there about 64 bit support.

More later........

Same printer

I have the LBP 3000 and it has been an excellent printer. Luckily I kept win xp on my Laptop and I can still use it on that.

I tried to add the printer via the network but that didn't work either.

I might email Canon to get them to hurry their asses up.
