Any device that you connect to your PC or Laptop is identified by its driver by the OS.
So you need to install the CanoScan N650U drivers in your laptop to get it detected.
According to "Cannon", the driver may be included in your OS. Perform "Microsoft Update".
If the problem still exists then you can try the Windows XP Driver.
If you failed to get the printer driver for Windows 7 then try installing the printer driver for Windows XP in compatiblity mode.
Click on the the above given hyperlink CanoScan N650U.
Make sure that "Drivers & Software" is selected --> Select Operating System as "Window" from the drop-down menu.
Select OS Version as "Windows XP" from the drop-down menu.
Click on "Drivers" and download it.
Click on the below link to install the driver in compatibility mode.
