Please check the location where the file saved by your Scanner and note down its size.

Also as you mentioned in your next reply, you need to go for check Device manager. Reinstall the drivers.

Had this same problem and just fixed it. You need to actually change the button settings in Navigator. Open MP navigator and choose One-Click, then click Button Settings. You can choose a new save destination from here. Even though you are using the software instead of the button on the device, it works.

Why am I getting the message "the system cannot find the path specified" when trying to scan?


Hi Tania,
You receive this notice when the drive and folder the scanner is configured to save the scan is missing. You can correct this by telling the computer where to save the scan. follow this simple steps.

  • On your computer desktop, click Start - open Devices and Printers -
  • Right-click on the printer/ scanner icon and select scan options. Assign a destination folder for saving your new scans.
Please rate me if this helps.

Cannon capture perfect 3.0


Check the location where you are directing the scanner/computer to store the scanned image. If it is full, obviously it cant store. Change the location where there is space.

MP600 Canner quit working


It sounds like a folder on your hard drive got renamed or moved/deleted. Open your Applications folder and look for a folder named Canon Utilities. Open the MP Navigator 3.0 file. Click on the Preferences button in the lower right corner. Click on the "Color Button" (or "Black Button") tab, and select the "Save to PC" option for "Event:". Verify that the folder indicated next to "Save in:" exists (this is the 'path specified' that the advisory message is referring to). If not, change it to a location that exists on your computer.
