There is no way to make this scanner work with Windows 8 at this time and the people at Canon are not making a driver. Hopefully this spares you the run-around I went through. Hopefully you have a friend or family member that has Vista or Windows 7 that can use the scanner.
You can download a demo version of VueScan from http://www.hamrick.com/ . Works with dozens of scanners. Don't know if it works in Windows 8 though.
Update: His home page indicates Windows 8 compatibility.
