OK. Here is what you do. (I just did this on an Intel Mac running OX10.5.6)
First go to the cannon site and get the program (File name: deldrvosx1510en.dmg) to uninstall the drivers for your scanner. Also, delete copies of the scan toolbox that you may have installed in your application folder.

Then go back to the canon site for the LiDE 25 and install the drivers (file name: lide25osx11030en.dmg.) This part is very important, in the middle of the install a dialog will popup asking if it is OK to run something like deldvr, DO NOT ALLOW IT TO RUN, HIT CANCEL.
reboot.
Install the canon toolbox software (it should be version 4.9.x not 5.0). File name is : cstbosx4934ej4.dmg
You should now be good to go.
What a %^#%$#-up process on Canons part.

When I push the SCAN button I get a message that asks me to 'specify the program where the scanned image is transferred'


You need to set up the destinations in the Canon software. First launch the Canon Scan-Gear Toolbox. The Scan button on the scanner is the same as Scan-1 button by default but no software is linked to this button. Click on the Scan-1 button then choose Set. Then set your application that you will want to work on the scanned image. Select your application (Photoshop Elements, for example) - the exe file if using Windows. (You may need to browse the Program Files folder and then the individual application folder (C:\Program Files in recent versions).) Then click Open and then Apply to confirm this. You can also select the file type that you want the scans to be saved as in this settings window.

If you want to change the scan destinations, then click on Settings (on the far right). You will see the drop-down menus for each of the scanner buttons. Select the desired function for the scan button and click OK. (Scan-1, Scan-2 and Scan-3 can be linked to other software.)

I hope this helps.

HI, I just purchased a Canon LiDE 110 scanner. After installing the software I did a test scan. The scanner scanned the image then a window popped up that says Canon MP Navigator EX has stopped working,...


1. Open up Image Capture
2. Go to Preferences and click the option under "Scanner" that says "When Image Capture is launched, open scanner window"
3. Then in the Scanner window, click on the "Options..." button
4. Then click on "Buttons"
5. Make sure "CanoScan Toolbox 5.0" is specified for "Application to launch when scanner button is pressed" I did all this and what (incorrectly was always happening when I pressed any button on the scanner was that Image Capture started up (along with the Scanner window), and that was it. What was supposed to happen was CanoScan Toolbox was supposed to launch and initiate the action associated with the button. Here's how I fixed it: 1. Followed the instructions in the 1/2/2008 posting here, (I think he means Jan 9th Canon install tips, which several other Canon users found useful.-Mike) uninstalling both the driver and toolbox (including any of their pref files I could find, emptying trash, and restarting as specified) and then reinstalled the toolbox first then the driver. 2. At first I didn't do the "Save" step (open toolbox, and then click the "Save" icon) and the behavior of the buttons was unchanged (and incorrect). 3. Then I did the "Save" step, but only clicked on "Apply" on the dialog box that then pops up. The behavior was still unchanged (and correct). 4. then I did the "save" step again, but this time followed it through until the end, clicking on the "Save" button in the dialog box and letting it save the scanned image in a file. This time, the buttons worked as they are supposed to!!! Hitting any of the buttons launched Toolbox and performed the correct actions associated with the buttons. In fact, it worked better than the Canon tech support people told me it would work. They told me that only the 3 right-most buttons work with a Mac and the 4 left-most buttons would only work with Windows. I've found that all the buttons work. However, Toolbox doesn't seem to reflect the mappings of the 4 right-most buttons in its user interface (and doesn't let you change the mappings, like you can for the 3 right-most buttons). Anyways, in summary, the key for me was doing the "Save" step, but doing it completely (by letting it save a file). I don't think this was clear from the other comments. Hopefully this info will help someone else.

Can you scan photos on the Epson DX6000 and save the image to the computor? If possible how do I go about it?


Hello,

Starting a Scan With EPSON Scan If you want to scan an image and save it directly to a file, you can start EPSON Scan as a “standalone” program.
step_1.gif Place your document or photo on the scanner. See Placing Documents or Photos for instructions.

step_2.gif Do one of the following to start EPSON Scan:


    Windows:
    Double-click the EPSON Scan icon on your desktop.


    Or select Start > All Programs or Programs > EPSON Scan > EPSON Scan.

    Mac OS X:
    Open the Applications folder and click the EPSON Scan icon.


    The EPSON Scan window appears.
step_3.gif If the Mode setting in the upper right corner of the window is set to Full Auto Mode, click the Scan button. For instructions on selecting optional settings, see Using Full Auto Mode.

01.gif mark_no.gif Note: 01.gif 01.gif To change scan modes, see Changing the Scan Mode.
step_4.gif The File Save Settings window appears. For instructions on selecting options, see Selecting File Save Settings.


cj35003e.gif step_5.gif When you are finished selecting File Save Settings, click OK. EPSON Scan starts scanning in Full Auto Mode.

step_6.gif The scanned image is automatically saved in the specified location.


    If the Open image folder after scanning checkbox is selected in the File Save Settings window, Windows Explorer or the Macintosh Finder automatically opens to the folder where the scanned image was saved.

Issue: ERROR: Insufficient space on target disk
Solution: Change where temporary files are saved (Toolbox)

Change where temporary files are saved (Toolbox) For an unknown reason, the computer is not allowing temporary data to be written to the general folder chosen by Toolbox at the time of install.
  1. From the CanoScan Toolbox, click the Settings button.
  2. At the bottom you will see a section that states, "Select Folder Where Temporary Files are Saved:".
    Click the Browse button.
  3. Browse to a folder, such as C:\Temp, and then click OK.
  4. Click OK again to exit the Settings window.
  5. Try scanning again.

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.

'unable to save file. the system cannot find the path specified'


Had this same problem and just fixed it. You need to actually change the button settings in Navigator. Open MP navigator and choose One-Click, then click Button Settings. You can choose a new save destination from here. Even though you are using the software instead of the button on the device, it works.

I'm using an MP780. Usually when I scan an image to jpeg I press START, CANON, SCANGEAR STARTER. This open a window to ScanGear MP. Since I use the Advance Tab I can set the DPI and whatever outputs. The DPI rsolution will determine the size of the file also. When it is finished scanning it goes to the next window which has Save As Type and Save Scanned Image to. Save As Type is where you can choose JPG or TIFF or BMP. Hope this helps.

When you see the File Save Settings window, you need to select the location, name, and format of the scanned image file you want to save.
  1. In the File Save Settings window, specify the file folder in which you want to save your scanned image. Click the My Documents or My Pictures radio button (Windows XP or earlier versions), or the Documents or Pictures radio button (Windows Vista or Mac OS X).
  2. If you want to select another folder, click Other, then click Browse (Windows) or Choose (Mac OS X) and select the folder. If you want to save your image on the desktop, simply click Other.
  3. Specify a file name prefix with an alphanumeric character string. A 3-digit number is automatically added to the file name, but you can change the Start Number if you like. If you are scanning multiple images at once, each image will receive a different 3-digit number.
  4. Select a file format. Depending on the format, the Options button may be available for making detailed settings.
  5. The check boxes at the bottom of the window give you these options:
  • Overwrite any files with the same name: Select this option if you want to reuse the selected file name and location and overwrite previous files with the same names.
  • Show this dialog box before next scan: Select this option if you want the File Save Settings window to appear automatically before you scan in Home or Professional Mode. If you deselect it, you must click the File Save Settings button to open the window.
  • Open image folder after scanning: Select this option if you want Windows Explorer or the Macintosh Finder to automatically open to the folder where your scanned image is saved when Epson Scan finishes scanning.
6. Do one of the following, depending on the currently selected scan mode:
  • Home or Professional Mode: Click OK. Epson Scan starts scanning.
  • Full Auto Mode: Click OK, click OK again, then click Scan. Epson Scan starts scanning.
The scanned image is saved in the file and location you chose.
