I've recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 after my old XP computer blew it's power supply. My Canon Lide 80 scanner worked fine with XP, but no joy with Windows 8.1. I contacted Canon to see if new drivers were available for win 8.1, but unfortunately they told me that they'd discontinued making new drivers for this scanner...none available for win 8.1. I rarely use my scanner, so don't want to have to buy a new one which is win 8 compatible. Does anyone know of drivers that would allow me to get this scanner running? Or has anyone found a work around to overcome this problem?
