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.

Received this error while scanning: User cancelled operation Canon DR-9050C Driver Version 1.9.11303.26001 (-4526) File access error occured. Check write protect or disk full

Maybe the default folder that is set up to receive scanned images has been set as 'read only'.
This sub-folder will most likely be in your default user folder.
Look for something similar to 'Scans' 'Scanned' 'Scanned images'.
Right click folder name in Explorer to view / change properties. OR..
Your printer interface software should allow an option to change the save path.
Also check drive capacity in My Computer screen.

Can i skip blank pages while scanning duplex with a 5080c using capture perfect 3.0?

There is option to skip Blank pages. You have to specify in terms of percentage, above which the scanner will save and discard images below the specified percentage.

Sounds like a virus/malware.
Scan with Malwarebytes in safe mode (F8 on boot up)
I would also switch your system restore off while you virus scan, lots of nasties can hide there.
Its up to you if you turn it back on later.
If you dont have any Antivirus ( but i think you probably will have :) )
Try AVG9 FREE or Microsoft Security Essentials

'unable to save file. the system cannot find the path specified'

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.

'unable to save file. the system cannot find the path specified'

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.

Scanner command invalid in current state

I have not used CapturePerfect 3.0. Hope the scanner is just fine. Try count only mode to check if it is okay.

Uninstall Captureperfect. Run chkdsk/scandisk to check if OS is ok. Reinstall Captureperfect again and it should work.
