Using Canon LIDE 25 Vista64 drivers with LIDE 20

Posted: 03-04-2009, 04:27 PM

I am one of the many who seem to have a 'dead' LiDE 20 with no Vista 6
drivers. I thought I'd read somewhere on here that someone was able t
get theirs to work by using the Vista64 driver for the Lide 25. I trie
and all it does is power up, light up, and then nothing. It's the mos
I've been able to do with it since we bought our new PC this summe
which makes me think I'm onto something

Any thoughts? (VueScan is on my list, along with 'buy new scanne
that's x64 ready'

Linux to the rescue. I tried a LiveCD of Ubuntu and xsane ran my Lid
20 without a problem. I was even able to save the scanned pictures t
my HP hard drive. I'm tempted to do a dual boot of Ubuntu and Vista
but we'll see.

For as little as I use the scanner, booting from a cd every once in
while doesn't bother me
