Canon Pixma MP460 problem...cannot scan

I need help in using my Canon Pixma MP460 scanner. I can copy and print things just fine, but but am unable to scan documents to my pc. I'm using an iMac with the printer connected through AirPort. I have downloaded the latest drivers and have went all through the support documentation and cannot figure out what the problem is. Does anyone have any idea what I need to do to get the scanner to work? Thanks

Re: Canon Pixma MP460 problem...cannot scan

I was told that the printer needs to be directly connected to the imac (not airport) for the scanner to work.
i have the same issue w/ the airport extreme.

MP460 prints and copies but does not scan

Use Apple's "Image Capture" program, included with OS X. Also updating to the latest drivers may solve your problem, at least according to Canon. I haven't tested the latest drivers yet.
