There is no way to make this scanner work with Windows 8 at this time and the people at Canon are not making a driver. Hopefully this spares you the run-around I went through. Hopefully you have a friend or family member that has Vista or Windows 7 that can use the scanner. Oh, how I miss Windows 7.

Hello Dr. Moo,

Let us start with couple of questions:

1.       Did you try installing Windows 7 driver in Compatibility mode?

2.       What happens when you connect the Scanner to your computer, any message?

3.       Did you check in Devices to make sure the Scanner is listed?

Perform the following troubleshooting methods:

Method 1:

If you have not tried installing the Windows 7 driver in compatibility mode, then I would suggest you to install the driver in compatibility mode.

Follow the steps provided in my previous reply to know how to install the driver in compatibility mode.

Method 2:

I would suggest you to try searching drivers through Windows Updates.

Follow the steps from the link “What if a device isn't installed properly?” to install the drivers automatically.

Method 3:

If that doesn’t work, then I would suggest you to run Hardware and devices troubleshooter to diagnose and fix the issue.

Follow these steps:

a.       Press “Windows key + W” from the keyboard.

b.      Type “Troubleshooting” without quotes in the search box.

c.       Select View all option from the left panel.

d.      Select “Hardware and devices” and follow On-screen instructions.

 

I hope this helps you in fixing Scanner issues. If the issue continues, post us back. We would be happy to help you further.
