Hello my name is ***** ***** I'd be happy to assist you if I could. The problem is (and I think you already know) Canon didn't develop drivers for this scanner for any version of Windows above Vista. So you are going to be out of luck trying to get this to work with 7. There are plenty of threads on the net where people are talking about this. Your best bet is to just buy another scanner/printer. If you get one just for scanning purposes you can get one pretty cheap.
