Question about Canon CanoScan 8600F Flatbed Scanner

3 Answers

Won't scan - says not enough disk space.

When I try to scan I get error message - "Unable to scan. Make sure that there is enough space on target disk."

I have 24.7GB available on one drive and 301GB on the other. Tried saving on both drives - same error.

    I have the same problem and the only solution I have found is to de-install the driver and re-install it.

I had the same problem. Solved it by going into the "CanoScan Toolbox" - "Settings" - and pressing the "Defaults" button in that panel - and then "OK" button. Afterwards everything worked fine. Hope this helps you.

I went to Toolbox -> Settings and then just chose again the folder where the files are saved (I used the same one as before). It works, somehow!

Why is there an error message: Space Not Enough when trying to copy DVD?


There is some space reserved for dvd information, error information etc. So solution is make the file archive by right click on file ->proprties-> click archive. After that use winrar and compress. http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

Can not scan. Get message "Unable to scan. Make sure there is enough space on target disk". Changed default temporary disk location, have plenty of disk space.


Had this before and after a day of playing about with cleaning out the windows temp folders, I simply uninstalled all the driver and toolbox software, downloaded the latest version from Canon's site and reinstalled it. After doing a bit of research, found out it was caused by a windows update conflicting with the drivers

Scanner sends message "Unable to scan. Make sure there is enough space on target disk"


Check the resolution settings.  If you're trying to scan at 9600dpi, the image will be huge, it may not fit into ram either, so the swap file would be used and you would need twice the file space to scan the image.

Scanning at 600dpi is generally fine enough for most uses (300 or less for web use), including scanning photographs (you may want to scan negatives at 1200 though.)

Have used toolbox 5.0 regularly to scan film negs without a problem until today. Suddenly I get the message "unable to scan. Make sure that there is enough space on the target disk". What does this mean?


Either your hard drive is full, or the program is trying to save to a different drive (CD, flash drive) which doesn't have room for files.

If you're saving as TIF files you may have filled a lot of hard drive space, as they are much bigger than JPG files.

An error message when i try to scan


On the CanoScan Toolbox program bar, select settings. Then hit the Browse button next to "Select Folder where Temporary Files are Saved" and go up one level to Canon from TB50. Then hit OK. This fixed the problem for me after Microsoft Updateinstalled updated Canon drivers. It looks like the geniuses at Canon are either having you write to a write-protect folder or one that only has system permissions and then giving you a disk-full error.

Do a "reset".
•Go into the CanoScan toolbox,
•click Settings,
•click the Defaults button on the bottom

It will take a few seconds to reset and you should be good to go.

Error message: Can not scan. Not enough space on target disk


I have just cured this"not enough space on the target disc" on my set up.I had the problem from day one after buying scanner but learned to get around it.Today I went into Toolbox and opened settings and made a note of the target address. Then checked properties of the target folder and found there was 86mb in a space for 80mb.This was the default setting chosen by the installation programme. I went to my documents and made a new folder and called it Canoscan, clicked ok and it became the new target and the fault is gone. Hope it works for others.

LiDE 600DF - Unable to scan


Hi Peter

Have had the same problem, seems to come and go a bit... Quickest & easiest fix is to go to CanoScan toolboox > Settings then press the 'defauls' button at bottom... this sets everything back to factory settings and should fix your problem. Cheers.
