I'm trying to install an old scanner D2400U from Canon on a Windows XP 64bit SP2.

I have found an official driver at canon, ScanGear CS-U 6.1.1d, but when trying to install the scanner (found new USB device, specify driver location, etc.), it cannot find the right software, make sure its x64 compatible (which I don't know if the driver I have found is).

I haven't worked with XP x64 before, so my question is:

Are there any tricks I can use to successfully install this scanner on XP x64 SP2?

Drivers have to be built for 32 or 64 bit so most likly an old scanner won't have a 64bit driver. However you should be able to use the scanner with WIA.

But this still requires a WIA driver - right? – Chau Oct 14 '10 at 18:35
windows has driver for most scanners for WIA and almost all of them will support twain drivers. See if there is a cannon twain driver x64 – rerun Oct 14 '10 at 18:40
