Not free but works with most scanners ^
Ah, great. Thanks, I just had a quick look over it but, being a bit of an IT novice, wasn't sure whether or not this quote meant I definitely couldn't use the VueScan program with Windows 7 64:
"You need to install a Canon scanner driver to use this scanner on Windows and Mac OS X. Unfortunately, Canon doesn't have a driver for this scanner on Windows x64."
(from here: http://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/canon_d2400uf.html)
It's a bit ambiguous to me. Are they claiming it's still going to be a problem for Windows 7 64-bit users? Cos the rest of the site seems to reassure everyone they can get scanners working on any system!!
I'd be happy to spend the $40 or whatever it is for the program... if i could be sure it'd be the answer.
Thanks for your help so far. I'm on the other side of the pond, so I'm off to bed. I'll pick this up in the morning though...
