When you choose email or pdf you should be shown a file name of the file - search your computer for this file using Start>Search>For Files and Folders (XP) or Start>Search (Vista). When you locate the folder the files are in create a shortcut to it on your desktop. The obvious places to look would be in your My Documents folder or the Program Folder for the application (C:\Program Files\Canon?)

I have a canon pixma MX850. I have connected to my network. Printing works fine. When I go to scan, the printer ask to which computer. I don't understand the question, much less the solution. Ho


Many machines allow network printing but not network scanning. I think you will find that the MX850 driver and MP Navigator software simply does not support network scanning. I suggest you query Canon directly.

Canon Pixma MX850 won't scan - says 'set the pc to start scan'


Do you have more than one PC connected to the scanner? I have both a PC and a Mac connected to it, and I think my scanner is trying to connect to the Mac, which requires image capture software to be installed, rather than the PC. Don't know how to tell it to go to the PC, though...

Im trying to scan and the canon says: "set the pc to start scan"...? Nothing pops up on the computer, what do i need to do?


I'm using an MG5220 and got this same message. Here's how I fixed it.

On the printer control panel press the soft key to select the scan function. Then hit the soft key to select Save/Forward. Then select Foward scanned data to a PC. On the next screen make sure to select the appropriate PC. In my case I'm connected wireless but the selection was set to USB connection and that's why I was getting the error noted above. When I picked the PC that is connected wirelessly everything worked fine again.

Can't find where scan is stored. Looked everywhere in every file


Normal 0 Most applications default to the MY Documents or the MyPictures folders, look in these first.
If they are not there try this:
Open your scan software and scan a pic
After the scan completes watch closely, the application will show a location or a --scan to -- option.
At this point you can select a location for storage.
Another place to look is the application folder itself.
