Well the good news is you don't have to pick up a disc :-) . You can actually download the driver for the scanner here (the driver is the software that allows the computer to see the scanner)

http://www.usa.canon.com/opd/controller?act=OPDSoftwareAct&fcategoryid=2341&modelid=7181

On that page you want the second one down (2080INF.exe)

Here is what you are going to need to do:

  1. Download that file
  2. Double Click on the file and then hit "Run" followed by "Unzip"
  3. Click the "Start" button
  4. Click "Control Panel"
  5. Double Click "Scanners & Camera's"
  6. On the left menu (it is the blue menu on the left) select "Add Imaging Device"
  7. A wizard will now come up , click "next"
  8. It will now ask what kind of scanner/camera you want to install, on the bottom right is a button that reads "Have Disk" ; click that
  9. Hit "Browse"
  10. Navigate to the folder where you un-zipped the original download to. By default it went to "C:/DR208C/INF" - In that folder you will see a file named "CANODR2K" , double click it.
  11. Hit "Ok"
  12. Select how it is connected (USB or SCSI)
  13. Finish the wizard
And thats it! Now your scanner is installed on the computer and you can scan......

Also on the original CD is a software called "Capture Perfect" , which is the software that is used for actually scanning with your scanner , you can download that here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Graphic/Graphic-Capture/Capture-Perfect.shtml

I have a Canon DR-2080C. Black line appears on the front page but when a scan as duplex it is not on the back page. How do I fix?


The top module has dirt stuck and bottom module is clean. Please clean the scan module with Isopropyl alcohol. For emergencies take a drop of cologne on a piece of cloth and wipe the area that is dirty.

Canon DR-2080c - Replacing rollers


Check for a switch on the scanner that is made to feed single pages or multiple pages. If it is on single page it can multi jam all the time.
As far as the rollers go there is a pick up roller, separation roller, and a feed roller. You can clean them with rubbing alcohol to see if its indeed the tires that are bad. The exchange kit has all three tires in it that are user replaceable.

CANON 2080c scanner not scanning bottom quarter inch of page


Check your scan settings. If you have chosen A4 and the paper is slightly bigger, this can happen. It is also possible when the scanner does not pick up the paper in the first attempt because it is worn out. In such an event, you may find a blank on the top of the image. Clean the rollers with a damp cloth. Dont use solvents.
