Hmmmm....I have a CanoScan 8800F that works perfectly well with Windows 11, using Windows the up-to-Win7 driver and software.
The CanoScan 9000F has a driver and Canon software for Windows 10. Did you try this in Win11? The two OSes are not all that different.
Yes, tried using CanonScan driver with Windows 11 but would not work. Got Microsoft support and they were able to get the Windows 11 scanner interface to work with the CanoScan 9000 but it didn’t offer the features the CanoScan driver did. Resorted to the Hamrick VueScan app.
Has anyone tried installing the win10 (or older) 9000f driver and MP navigator under compatibility mode in win11? Also, I wonder if the win11 9000f MkII driver would run the 9000f? I'm building a Win11 PC and would like to keep my 9000f so I'll be experimenting. I may even try scanning in a win10 virtual machine - lol
Just as an additional data point, with respect to the 8800F, I use an app called "Driver Booster" to find and install drivers for all my devices in Windows 11 to save me having to schlep around to all the various mfgr support sites to find them.
I just resurrected my old 8800F for some 35mm slide scanning, and Driver Booster went out and found Canon driver v184.108.40.206 from 2009 and installed it. Seems to work fine so far with no need for compatibility mode. Pretty amazing for being 15 years ago - who'dve thunk it?
Interesting. Windows 11 on its own found my 9000f and loaded a Canon driver version 220.127.116.11 dated 8/30/2012. Using the built-in fax and scan app, the scanner appears as WIA CanoScan, The max resolution I can scan at is 600dpi, so even though it says in the general tab 9600x9600dpi I've lost a bunch of resolution. It also calls the MP Navigator 3.1 program which, even in compatibility mode, crashes for me. IIRC, the old TWAIN driver is how I got higher resolutions for photo scans. The Windows store has an app called "Windows Scan" which also maxes out for me at 600dpi, so I need another solution for photo scanning. My options seem to be a) keep the old PC around or b) keep experimenting or c) take a look at VueScan???
Agree that it gets frustrating trying to keep using hardware that's hopelessly behind current tech and can't be upgraded. I tried that "Windows Scan" app and the best my 8800F could do was 300dpi, unacceptable for photography stuff, IMO.
I decided to retire the 8800F and just ordered a Braun Reflecta x33 standalone scanner that does 5760X3840 scans, no PC or software required. Not sure what that equates to in dpi but my guess is it'll do what I need.
Researching this stuff, I've read really good reports on VueScan. I won't need it with the scanner I just ordered, but its developer seems to have gone out of his way to make it compatible with all the major brand scanners.
