You must have the Canon program "Scangear" (which is a twain driver) installed. Then follow the instructions on page 31 of the MP470 series Quick Start Guide. The guide can be found here:

How does scanning work? I can't get past the bit that says 'set the pc to start scanning'. On my old printer you just had to press the 'scan' button, why does it need to be more complicated? Why...

How to scan a document on the laptop


You will need to ensure you have installed the cannon software correctly, as it comes with a method for scanning to the connected computer.

The Software you are looking for is
MP Navigator EX, it has an option to "Scan/Import" this will fire up the Multifunction scanner or just pressing scan on the multifunction after the software is installed will be sufficient.


So Drivers & Cannon Software are required
MP240 series MP Driver & MP Navigator EX

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 press scan but nothing happens I scan on cannon Mp 160 and I cant scan with my pc


Make sure the scanner is connected to your laptop/PC before you press 'scan' and is turned on.
Pressing the scan option will start Canan's software MP Navigator for scanning. You can also start MP Navigator on your PC and then start scanning directly from your program or from the printer button.
