    same here, we are an all mac office :)  shame on canon, they are usually such great products. well, actually, i like this product but how are they going to go and sell it with only half the drivers? i emailed them and their respose was:

    "Regrettably, if you are running Mac OSX only printing and PC faxing is 
    supported on the imageCLASS MF4150.  There are no plans to support 

    scanning in Mac OSX from this particular unit.  We sincerely apologize 

    for any inconvenience this may cause."

    same here: very frustrated that there is no Canon MF 4150 scanner support for Mac OSX. Is there any way around with another TWAIN driver?

There is not yet Mac driver support for the scanner portion of this printer.  The printer should work fine, but no scanner as of yet.  Too bad no one told me at the Office store when I bought it.

Usually it requires a TWAIN driver installed. Is that driver installed onto your computer?

Hi I need to scan a document and when i hit scan no action is taken. I have the MF4150 and im using it on a mac thank you

This unit does not scan with the Mac OS. The only available functions are: Print/PC Fax. The drivers are here: . Use the drop-down menu to select Mac OS X. Note only Printer and Fax drivers are available.

To the best of my knowledge, you need to run a Windows virtual PC with the unit installed to that virtual PC or a second computer running Windows to get the Scan functions. For the virtual computer option, you will need a licensed version of Windows, the Windows version of the drivers from the above link and a program like Parallels.

I wish that I had better news.

When scanning a document, your software uses optical character recognition to detect and translate the document to be scanned.

Perhaps, to have your hand-written notes show up, you could scan the item as a picture?

I have a cannon MP 160 printer/scanner. It does not work on a Mac

Uninstall all your drivers (and delete the preferences) and download the Mac drivers from this link. The drivers that came with your printer were developed before Snow Leopard came out.

I can't figure out how to scan a document on the Canon MP240..I have read the manual and there's nothing in it about scanning...???

Place the item you want to scan face down on the glass and press the SCAN button


You should go to the support section on the CANNON website and click on she "Drivers and download" tab

Select the file marked MP240 Onscreen manual for either windows or mac (depending on what you have) and download / save it then run the program

This will install the ONSCREEN manual and from there you can navigate to the section on SCANNING
