I get a message: Specify the program where the scanned image is transferred. What's that about?

I just installed my CanoScan 8600F on a new computer. When I try to scan, I get an error message that says, "Specify the program where the scanned image is transferred." I don't understand what this is asking for.

SOURCE: which program do i use to transfer the scanned image too?

Hi,

Sounds like the CanoScan is looking for a photo enhancing/utility program. Programs for this purpose are Adobe PhotoShop, PaintShop Pro, ACDSee, or even the simple Windows Paint.

Additionally, the CanoScan Toolbox might have a basic photo utility program. Normally basic photo utility programs like this are included in the CD installer of a scanner, a digicam or even most color printers.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

You need to install the software drivers You need BOTH programs installed on your PC, Toolbox & Scangear. Also use the driver remover first. Then unplug scanner, reboot, install Scangear first, and toolbox second, then reboot, when at desktop next time, plug in the Scanner. Hopefully it should be all good.

Whichever program you wish.
MSPAINT comes with the operating system, so you may want to point it there until you get a better program like photoshop or corel photopaint.

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.

Scans are taking a long time to scan.


1) Your scanning image resolution may be too higher set 300 dpi / 400 dpi / 600 dpi. Scanning now fast.... not ok look step 2
2) Re-Install Scanner driver / down load new driver. not ok look step 3
2) Replace USB cable.

When I try to scan with my canonscan lide 70 I get a message "specify the program where the scanned image is transferred"


You just need to point the program to where the scanning program was installed. If you just let it auto-load it should be here: (assuming you loaded the free toolbox software)
C:\Program Files\Canon\CanoScan Toolbox Ver5.0\CSTBox.exe
or just look at where the toolbox is installed by searching for the CSTBox.exe file.

Receive "cannot scan because the original may not be set correct.


Is your Scanner locked ? If yes then you will see there's a solid plastic backing on the inside of the lid that needed to be removed. Also remove all protective plastic too.

I had the same problem..the way to get around this is to open the toolbox and click "Save" instead of "Scan" After you do this you just create a file name and save it into a folder..also make sure you change the "save as type" to JPEG
