I don't have a manual nor know where to find one on line so my question is.
How do you print a scanned item to the computer? I want to scan something from my printer to the computer. I don't know how?

Hello. You must connect the printer to your computer with a USB cable in order to scan. Once you have made the connection turn on both the computer and the scanner. then place the document you wish to scan on the scanner and push the scan button. The scanned item will them appear on the computer screen. NO the wireless printer will not scan wirelessly, only print wirelessly. Regards, Joe
The same thing happen to me. I have Windows XP. Try using the Scanners and Cameras Wizard.
Connect the MP470 to your computer, have it on and place the item to scan onto the scanner.
Go to the Start Menu
Click on Printers and Faxes
On the left of the screen there is an area titled, "Other Places"
Under the Other Places heading, click Scanners and Cameras
Select the WIA Canon MP470 device(double-click) This should open the Scanner and Camera Wizard.
Click Next and you will be taken to the Choosing Scanning Preferences screen. Here you can select picture type. If you click the Preview button your device will scan your item and display it in the preview box. Otherwise click Next.
Click Next to name the file, choose a file format and where to save it.
