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 !

The Canon site states The driver may be included in your OS or you may not need a driver. Have you tried that? – CharlieRB Apr 30 '12 at 18:39
    
Yes I have, but the scanner shows as an unrecognized device in windows device manager. – Spaf May 1 '12 at 7:48

XP Mode might be your best bet. Below is a link to a post on Microsoft Answers which is very detailed and helpful.

On the Canon UK website is a driver for Vista (www.canon.co.uk/Support/Consumer_Products/products/scanners/CanoScan_series/CanoScan_3000F.aspx). It might work with Windows 7.
