Question about Canon CanoScan N650U Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Canon N650U and Mac OSX

Is it possible for my old scanner to work with my newer OSX PowerBook G4? It used to work when I had OS 9.

I've installed the driver from the Canon website, I installed the CanonScan Toolbox software v.5.0 When I push button scanner, nothing happens. If I open Toolbox first and choose 'Scan', says it can't find the driver.

Maybe I don't have the driver in the right folder?

I'm running OS X 10.4.11

    I was able to install the Canoscan Toolbox 4.1 for OS 9, that program opens, but it still won't scan because it wants me to designate a program where the scanner photo will go. Nothing I have in OS 9 works, it says my Adobe Photoshop needs a plug-in, and it won't accept OS X programs like iPhoto.

    Maybe I should buy a new scanner, although it seems like a waste because I don't really use it that often anymore (as you can see) and I don't need it for anything really important!

    Any other ideas??

Canon only has this scanner driver in OS9 and it will run in classic mode if you are using OSX. This $40 software will work with your scanner in OSX, but for $40 you can purchase an OSX native scanner too.

Hi Bobby
You will need to get an OS X installation DVD. Try eBay.Don't go for anything lower than 10.4 (Tiger)10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard) should run fine on this machine.Don't bother with 10.7 or 10.8

I have an old G4 Mac Laptop I want to start using again, no recovery CD and need to reset the username and password because I can't remember them


I do not think there is any shortcut or hack to recover the password. You will need an installer disk, preferably one that has the same OS version as your G4. Tiger is your best option, OS 10.4. The newer Leopard OS 10.5 has a lot of code for Intel based processors rather than the PowerPC. If the G4 has 10.4 installed as far as you remember, you can try these tips:

How to reset the master password for g4 mac powerbook ?


1. Obtain a Mac OSX install disc (buy one from apple or try Ebay) 2. Insert the disc then click on the "Install Mac OS" icon. Then click the restart button. 3. DONT INSTALL! Just click through enough of the windows to get to the regular set of choices on the menu bar. One of those choices is UTILITIES and one of the choices there is RESET PASSWORD.
Simple, but you should know that anyone with a Mac OSX install disc can gain access to your computer.

Mac Powerbook using a Dell 810 all in one Printer


No, because that model printer is just rubbish. Throw the thing out and purchase a laser Brother HL-2170 and it will work just splendid with the Apple PowerBook G4.

Mac Powerbook shows file wih flashing question mark, won't boot.


The flashing question mark means that the computer can't find an OS.
If the computer previously was working, start up from the OSX disc and run 'Disc Utility' from the 'Utilities' menu in the top toolbar.
Run 'First Aid' to check and repair any errors.
If the computer still can't find an OS then you will need to re-install OSX.

Upgrade macOSX 101


If you have OS X 10.1.5, you would have to do a fresh install of 10.5 because you can only upgrade to 10.5 from 10.3, anything before you would have to archive your data and do a clean install.
