Question about Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One Printer
I have a Mac OS10.5.5 and an Airport Express to be able to use all-in-one wirelessly. I have no problem printing, but have not been able to scan.
I downloaded the Canon ScanGear for OSX and followed the online MP Navigator EX instructions on how to launch the scan from my computer. When I pressed "Scan" I got the following message:
"Cannot communicate with scanner. Cable may be disconnected or scanner may be turned off. Check Status. Scanner driver will be closed. 155.5.5."
Does this mean I can only scan with the mx310 connected by cable to the computer rather than connecting to Airport Express?
I have a new macbook pro OS 10.5 and installed a new HP L7590 all in one printer. Same problem. Called Apple and they confirmed that they do not have a driver for the Airport Express to allow scanning wireless. Therefore, SOL. If want to scan, then have to unplug from APE and plug into laptop. My solution is to use a USB hub and mount close to desktop so I can easily remove my HP and connect to laptop to scan often (or buy a cheap flatbed). GARY

I plugged the printer cable directly to my laptop instead of trying to scan using the airport wireless router. Plugging it in did the trick.
