  • Kerkira Jan 29, 2008

    Same problem. I have a Canon MP810 and I can't scan as MP Navigator 3.0 won't run and gives an error message saying "insufficient memory". My o.s. is Windows XP (Home Edition). The printer part works fine, but I notice that nothing is listed in the Scanners and Cameras folder of the Control Panel. Should there be?



    I'd appreciate any help from out there please!

    Same problem - Canon MP810, Windows XP Pro, 1Gb RAM.

    Reinstalling driver makes no difference.

    Canon MX7600, Vista Home Premium SP1. Same problem. Reinstalled drivers - same problem.

    nothing you said worked

  • Eivind Hagen Mar 10, 2009

    Same problem here. Identical probvlem both on XP Pro an dVista Home Premium. I have plenty of RAM, so this must be some crappy software.

  • Blackcat15 Mar 30, 2009

    Same infuriating problem as everyone else - will scan a couple of things, then pops up with the 'insufficient memory' message yet again.



    Went in and emptied the entire folder of old scans, but it doesn't seem to have worked, unfortunately.

If you have a Canon Pixma and you cannot scan because of "insufficient memory", then try this:
go into My Pictures -> MP Navigator
Then delete all the dated folders in there. They are the past scans you have done, they eat up your memory.

Get a USB 2.0 printer cable. Sometimes Canon multifunctionals with scanners wont work correctly because the older USB cable can't pass the data quick enough.

I had two error messages - one was "insufficient memory" and the other - when Navigator was half working "insufficent memory - abort scanning". I also found that the Scansoft OCR icon was non-functional. I tried updating drivers and installing the updated version of MP Navigator from the Canon site. All to no avail. Eventually I reinstalled from the original disk. This would not work until after I turned off my CA firewall AND the virus scanner. It is now working - fingers crossed!

How do you get the Canon Pixma mp500 to scan?


Hi there,

Scanning images,
About Scanning images
You can scan images from the machine to a computer without printing them and save them in popular formats. Scanned data saved on your computer can be processed using image processing software. Furthermore, you can use the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to convert scanned paper documents to text data.

* Before scanning
Before scanning images, confirm the following :
- Are the necessary software (MP Drivers and MP Navigator) installed ?
If the software is not installed, install it.
- Does the document to be scanned meet the requirements for an original to be set on the Platen Glass ?
- Is the machine connected to a computer correclty.
Confirm that the connection between the machine and the computer is physically secure.

Scanning Methods.

A) Scanning Using the MP Navigator
MP Navigator enables you to scan in documents loaded on the Platen Glass and view images saved on your computer or on a memory card. Scanned documents can be previewed and easily printed and edited according to your needs.
You can use the supplied application softwares to edit or print the document you have scanned.

Windows : Double-click the [MP Navigator 2.0] icon on your desktop to launch MP Navigator.
Mac : Select [Applications] from the [Go] menu, then double-click the [MP Navigator 2.0] icon to launch MP Navigator.

You can launch the following application software from the MP Navigator.
* Easy-PhotoPrint (Photo Printing)
* ArcSoft PhotoStudio (Photo image editing)
* ScanSoft OmniPage SE ( Converting scanned document to text)
- This application software may not be supplied with teis machine in some country.

Note : If you did a [Custom Install] and only installed the MP Driver and MP Navigator, these application software were not installed and thus cannot be launched. To launch any of the above application softwares from MP Navigator, do a [Custom Install] once again to install them.
For detailed operations of the MP Navigator, refer to the Scan Guide.


B) Scanning Using the Operation Panel of the Machine
You can scan documents to your computer by using the Operation Panel.
Important : Do not insert or remove USB cables when scanning images with the machine connected to a computer, or when the computer is at sleep or standby mode.
*If you are using Windows XP
The program selection screen is displyed the first time you press [Color] or [Black] on the machine.. Specify the [MP Navigator 2.0] as the application software to use, check [Always use this program for this action], then click [OK]. From the next time, MP Navigator is automatically started.

*When using Mac OS X
For the machine to start scanning when [Color] or [Black] is pressed, you need to set MP Navigator as the starting application software in Image Capture under [Applications] of Mac OS X.

1) Press [ON/OFF] to turn on the machine.
2) Load the documents on the Platen Glass.
3) Select the scan option.
a) Press [Scan].
The scan operation selection screen is displayed.
b) Use Up or Down arrows to select the scan operation, then press [OK].
Scan standby screen is displayed.
Save to PC : The document is scanned and saved.
Save as PDF file : The document is scanned and stored as a PDF file.
Attach to E-Mail : The document is scanned, and the image is attached to an e-mai using the e-mail application software.
OPen with application : The document is scanned and displayed on the registered application software.

4) Press [Color] or [Black].
The document is scanned. The settings configured from MP Navigator apply when scanning.
Important : If with some types of original the position and size of the image is not scanned in correctly, please refer to the "Selecting the Behaviour of the Operation Panel with Mp Navigator " in the Scan Guide (on-screen manual). and change the MP Navigator [Document Type] and [Document Size]] to match those of the original being scanned.
Note : The operation to be performed after scanning the document depends on the scan operation setting you have selected in step 3. For details on how to modify the operation settings, refer tp the Scan Guide on-screen menual.

C) Scanning from an Application Software
You can scan an image from TWAIN-or- WIA (Windows XP only) complaint application software and handle the scanned image in the application software. For detailed operations, refer to the Scan Guide (on-screen manual).

Hope this helps.
Please rate my response.
Thanks
Have a good day.

My Cannon Pixma MP500 multi-function printer randomly scans only part of the document on the glass. Sometimes it does get it right; that is it correctly scans the whole page, but very often, the scan...


Try to adjust the scanner resolution

Solution: Adjusting Output (Scan) Resolution (Windows) - MP150 / MP170 / MP450 / MP500 / MP800 / MP950

Adjusting Output (Scan) Resolution By changing the resolution, you can set how clear the image is going to be.
The higher the resolution, the clearer (but the larger) the scanned image is.
The resolution can be changed before scanning. (Note)
If the resolution is doubled, the image data will be quadrupled.
If the data is large, problems such as slow processing speed or lack of memory may occur.

How do you scan a photo?


- press "scan" button, then press "start" button (either black or color)
- a small window (MP Navigator EX - MX310 series) should appear on your computer screen
- you can then choose one of the option there
- place a document or photo you want to scan on the canon plate face down
- then back to your computer screen and click "scan"

i have iMac and the pop up window says (MP Navigator EX - MX310 series) when i press "start" button on Canon
now i'm not sure if it'll say (MP Navigator EX - MX310 series) on windows PC
hope this helps. good luck.

'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.

SCANNING TO THE PC


I have got pictures from the scanner to the PC using the import option with photoshop. It would probably work with other image handling software.
The MP navigator program supplied with the MP600 is non functional with my machine. It just comes up with 'insufficient memory ' message as I said in my posting
