Will Canon write a new driver to work with the 64 bit OS? I've been able to use VueScan by Hamrick software to operate my Canon LIDE 600F until the new MAC OS just came out. I have another Canon flat bed scanner that needs a 64 bit compatible driver as well. It's a shame to have to add these fine scanners to the electronic trash at the dump when all it is is a software issue.
I have a Canoscan Lide 600F and recently updated to Catalina so I, too, am unable to use Canoscan Toolbox. I tried VueScan but it wouldn't work, so I reached out to support. Ed wrote back:
"Unfortunately, VueScan doesn't work with this scanner on macOS Catalina (10.15). We were using a Canon plugin library for this scanner on previous versions of macOS, but these are 32-bit only plugins and don't work on Catalina. If you're scanning film, I'd recommend getting a used Epson scanner on ebay instead. If you only need a flatbed scanner, I'd suggest
a new Canon LiDE 300 (the LiDE 400's higher resolution isn't useful for scanning paper). An even simpler solution is to use a virtual machine to run Windows 7 or Mac OS X 10.14 (Mojave) on Catalina. For example www.parallels.com lets you do this.
It's what I use for my development machine for VueScan, and I highly recommend it."
I haven't tried Parallels yet but plan to. I hate to just trash this perfectly good scanner.
Any other updates on this?
