    Canoscan F3000

    I have recently installed Windows 8 Pro and impressed with it, but dismayed to discover my Canoscan f3000 doesn't work, as no drivers available. Although it is old in computer terms it still works fantastically on XP, so I'm wondering if anyone has one going perhaps using another driver?

    Many thanks.

    I have the same problem with a much newer multi function Canon. It is a game killer for me and until I find a resolution to the problem I will not be installing W8. So I wish you good luck but at the same time do not expect a resolution short of tweeking the registry to fix the problem.

    I was tempted to stay with XP a while longer, but the old machine was slow and I really wanted better specs for Lightroom and PS Elements. Tweaking the registry is beyond me, so will just have to keep the XP machine in case I need/want to scan more slides or old negatives I guess - until I can buy a newer scanner. Needless to say it won't be Canon as they have a reputation for not updating their drivers.
