Canon Scanner n650u

I own this scanner and after a recent crash it won't save scans to disk. It seems to save the first scan (and name it incorrectly) and then wont save any others. All drivers are up to date & I am running Windows XP Media Center.

Re: Canon Scanner n650u

Try re-installing the drivers , your crash could of corrupted the installed drivers causing your issues. I have installed Media Center on my Father in Law's cpu and found that it is very unstable at times and also many of his installed programs that worked fine under Win XP SP2 either crash frequently or wont work at all. Driver support is an issue for Media Center IMO. I would recommend if you cannot get the scanner to work after you re-install them , think about changing your OS. Good Luck.

Unable to install canoscan N650U on windows 7 TOSHIBA

I have many years repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion for you.

First I would google Canon CanoScan N650U drivers, it should pull up Canons website and take you directly to the newest drivers avalible they are free. Then I would disconnect your scanner from your computer and install the latest drivers. Also while your on Canon's website download capture perfect its free and it works with your scanner for scanning purposes. I would then install the drivers and then hook up the cable to your computer. At that point you should get a pop up saying new drivers are being installed. Once there installed reboot your computer and you should be ready to start scanning.

I hope this helps you out.

Scanner Canon DR-9080C recently started scanning at a slower speed. All setting look to be the same compared to another unit. Any thoughts?

Do you have enough disk space? Try disk Defrag and create more space. Also check the Format you are saving, is it TIFF compressed or uncompressed? The uncompressed file size is really huge.

Canon dr 6080 scanner is getting papers but i dont know where the scanned images are being saved and whether being saved or not?

What scanning software are you using? Once you initiate scan command, the software will ask for location (and format) where you want to save the files. After scanning, try & use 'Save as' command, by default it will go to where it is already saved. Alternatively, search for the file name under Windows.

Please i need the drivers canon scan n 650u for windows vista ultimate 64 bit

Download the XP driver for the Canoscan N650U scanner and save it on your desktop. Once the download is finished go to your desktop and unzip or unrar it and then plug in your scanner and try installing it - let it fail. Then, go into your control panel, device manager, find your scanner - right click "update driver software" go in and tell it where to look - here is where it tells you the driver isn't encoded properly but it gives you the option to install it anyway and it works just great - it'll re-organize in your device manager under imaging devices when done.

I have recently purchased a new tower which includes Windows7. I have a Canon N650U scanner. I am having trouble installing it. Please help!

Unfortunately the manufacturer has chosen not to support this scanner under either Vista or Windows 7. If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate, you can install the XP mode (a virtual XP computer). You will probably be able to install the scanner in the XP machine. The drivers are listed as being for Windows 98 and Windows 2000; I have never found any Win2K device that didn't install under XP.

You may need to save the images to an external media to transfer them from one "machine" to the other.

I hope this helps.

Canon N650U and Mac OSX

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.

Cannon scanner D1250U2F and Hp photosmart printer 8250

This is a compatibility issue between the Copy function of Toolbox and the specific HP printer driver. The only work-around would be to scan your image and save it, then print it from another application. One other possibility would be to get Toolbox version 2.2.x from the N650U scanner download page. This version will be limited in functionality, but COPY button should function as expected.
