Canon scanner FB620U driver workaround for Windows 7

Canon tech support states that there is no Vista/Win 7 driver for their old FB620U scanner.  I've done the usual web search, but have not gotten any clues.  I hate to throw away a perfectly good scanner.  Any ideas?

    I have a perfectly good (but older) HP Scanner that will not even work with XP Pro SP2. When I replace this machine with a Windows 7 Pro machine early in 2010, I shall have to purchase a new scanner.

    In the interim, I can scan to .TIF files using the Microsoft Office Scanner, but not scan to .PDF .

    You are probably out of luck as I am. ... Thinkpads_User
