My good old scanner is a Canon Canoscan 3000F. It seems to be lacking a 64 bit driver on windows, or so it seems when I check Canon's site. I tried Vuescan, which provides alternative drivers for old scanners, with no luck

Does anyone know of a way to it functional on Windows 7 x64 ?

Thank you for your help !

Yes I have, but the scanner shows as an unrecognized device in windows device manager. – Spaf May 1 '12 at 7:48
