Not quite there...

I tried doing what Milo suggested in a post above, yet it still doesn't work. When selecting the folder for Windows to look for the driver, it just doesn't find it.

I've got a Win7 Home Premium 64-bit running, not sure if the tests here have been made on 32-bit?

Can anybody help....?

Such a shame, I love my little scanner

Ps. Tried installing Hamrick VueScan Pro (as some other forums suggested) and that didnt work either.

Hi there
I have a similar scanner -- N1240.

The easiest way is to run it in an XP Virtual machine -- works perfectly.

Either use XP mode or run in a separate XP machine under vmware / virtual box. This way it doesn't matter if your HOST machine is W7 X-64 or W7 x-86.

On the XP virtual machine the Canon software works fine.

Scanner is perfectly OK so don't throw it away.

Cheers

The drivers on my site don't work on 64-bit operating systems. 32-bit only.

I'm sure there are 64-bit drivers out there, somewhere.

Hi there
This as I said is the EASY way to run this

run it in a Virtual XP machine then you can use the proper CANON driver.

To use the file in photoshop on the HOST machine :

1) from the VM connect Network drive (a Drive that your HOST machine sees)

2) import the image into your VM on to the "Network" drive -- i.e the Host drive. Use the Canoscan or other favourite utility to acquire the TWAIN image and save it on your Network (i.e Host) drive. I use Paperport but there are others.

3) Open Photoshop (I'm using CS5 so I know it works OK) on your HOST and read the file you created.

No probs.

As for the XP Virtual machine you only need a small 512MB VM won't use any Host resources of any significance.

Don't throw the scanner away --it's perfectly good and probably better quality than a load of these "Combo print / fax / scanner" devices available now -- the image quality on those devices is probably highly dumbed down to mobile phone pic quality rather than a decent photo image quality you can get from a DSLR.

Photography BTW isn't just about the nr of Mega pixels in the image -- mobile phone cameras for example can't give pics with a small DOF (Depth of field -- essential for GOOD Portraits) etc

Using a proper XP VM system saves messing around with all sorts of "work around" drivers etc originating from who knows where -- and you only need to start the VM when you want to use the device.

Use VBOX or VMWARE player (both free) for creating and running your VM.

Cheers

Hi there
download Virtual Box or vmware player -- both free -- then create an XP VM from either a running XP system (use vmware converter also free - to create a VM from a Real machine or an XP install disk).

This will even run on HOME BASIC.

Don't bother with XP mode for this type of application.

Once you've got the vm installed ensure you also install vmware tools or vbox additions depending on what you are using for running the vm --this will improve display, mouse and USB performance. These programs run from INSIDE the VM once you've booted it up.

Thank you to MiloDC & Import from scanner for Photoshop Elements 9

I just registered for an account here to say thank you to MiloDC for the Canoscan N1220U driver. I can now use my Canon N1220U canoscan with my Windows 7 32-bit machine and it works perfectly.

One problem I did have was when I tried to Import from the scanner into Photoshop Elements 9. It would not give me the option under File>Import to choose the Canon N1220U scanner. I found an answer to this problem and am reposting the answer from Barbara Brundage. After following the directions below I can now import from the Canon N1220U directly into Photoshop Elements 9.
