Scanning problem with a CanoScan8600F

I'm using Windows XP. I installed a CanoScan 8600F, flatbed scanner about a year ago and had no problems until recently with any of its functions. Now, using Toolbox 5.0, whenever a function is selected (Copy; OCR; PDF; etc) I get response: ''Unable to scan. Make sure there is enough space on the target disk''. As per the manual, I've cleared the Temp folder and done ''Disk Cleanup'' to no effect. If I use Presto! Page Manager I can scan with no problem.
Any thoughts?

    Exact same problem. I've reinstalled the software. No change.

    Exact same problem - also, can't find any online help from Canon. Thought it might be because I run Vista Ultimate, but I think it's just sloppy work from Canon's programmers.

    I have a Canon LIDE 600F I'm running Windows XP and I can only scan a couple of times before I get a message insufficient space on target disc. When that happens I have to reinstall the software which is time consuming. Any ideas??

I have a CanoScan 8600F. When I want to scan I get the not enough space on the target disk


This seems to happen quite often with the Canon scanners. If you know you have enough space on your hard drive, open the CanoScan Toolbox, then click on Settings and change the folder where the temporary files are stored to another folder of your choice, or create a new one in your documents.

I have a Canoscan 8600F that hasn't been used for a while. Now that I want to use it but somehow cannot find the software on my computer (accidental deleted?). was able to download the driver but still...


Sorry, but I have been doing this for many, many years and sometimes... the scanner doesn't work anymore when you lose the disk. I did say sometimes. The HP I have is just like that.

Receive "cannot scan because the original may not be set correct.


Is your Scanner locked ? If yes then you will see there's a solid plastic backing on the inside of the lid that needed to be removed. Also remove all protective plastic too.

Lost setup CD


Hi,

go to the canon website. There you find all the drivers and setup programs that were on the disk for download.

I did the search for you. Go to this link:

CanoScan 8600F support


Select your operating system and you will see download links appear.
