    I have a CanoScan LiDE 600F and whenever I try to use any of the scan buttons on the scanner, I get the message: Unable to scan. Make sure that there is enough space on the target disk.



    Please help. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and still have the same problem.

Do a "reset".
•Go into the CanoScan toolbox,
•click Settings,
•click the Defaults button on the bottom
•then click OK.
It will take a few seconds to reset and you should be good to go.

The problem is with the default location of the ".. Folder Where Temporary Files are Saved". In the Toolbar click on settings and change the location of the Temporary files to any other location or create a new one. This change solved my problem.

    I tried this once and it was helpful but then the problem reappeared. Solution #1 worked for me.

Do you have enough disk space? Delete unwanted files in your Harddisk, do a Defrag and run Scandisk. If you want the file small to be small try TIFF mode for SCanning, if Color, try JPG.

    This problem is all over the internet from people who are well aware that they have oodles of disk space. It is a Canon software problem, and solution 2 works for me. I'm amazed at how many people answer this question with "have you checked your disk space?" Grrrr!!

Can not scan. Get message "Unable to scan. Make sure there is enough space on target disk". Changed default temporary disk location, have plenty of disk space.


Had this before and after a day of playing about with cleaning out the windows temp folders, I simply uninstalled all the driver and toolbox software, downloaded the latest version from Canon's site and reinstalled it. After doing a bit of research, found out it was caused by a windows update conflicting with the drivers

Scanner sends message "Unable to scan. Make sure there is enough space on target disk"


Check the resolution settings.  If you're trying to scan at 9600dpi, the image will be huge, it may not fit into ram either, so the swap file would be used and you would need twice the file space to scan the image.

Scanning at 600dpi is generally fine enough for most uses (300 or less for web use), including scanning photographs (you may want to scan negatives at 1200 though.)

Using Canoscan Lide 70. When trying to scan receive message "not enough room on target disk" When I reinstall Toolbox it works (for a while, then same repeats).


When you scan a picture, you send it to a "Target" folder which you can set up in your scan options or settings.

At a guess your current destination or target folder is getting to large for the hard drive that its registered on

You've 2 options, clean out the target drive or use the scan options to send your pictures to a new destination with plenty of space.

An error message when i try to scan


On the CanoScan Toolbox program bar, select settings. Then hit the Browse button next to "Select Folder where Temporary Files are Saved" and go up one level to Canon from TB50. Then hit OK. This fixed the problem for me after Microsoft Updateinstalled updated Canon drivers. It looks like the geniuses at Canon are either having you write to a write-protect folder or one that only has system permissions and then giving you a disk-full error.

Won't scan - says not enough disk space.


I had the same problem. Solved it by going into the "CanoScan Toolbox" - "Settings" - and pressing the "Defaults" button in that panel - and then "OK" button. Afterwards everything worked fine. Hope this helps you.

LiDE 600DF - Unable to scan


Hi Peter

Have had the same problem, seems to come and go a bit... Quickest & easiest fix is to go to CanoScan toolboox > Settings then press the 'defauls' button at bottom... this sets everything back to factory settings and should fix your problem. Cheers.

Scanner won't scan


Hello, It may be possible that the error msg that you are receiving may be referring to another error. 1st thing I would try is checking the resolution, in some cases if the resolution is too high it may result with numerous issue's if your random access memory (RAM) is not sufficient enough to accommodate the resolution that you attempting to scan with. Try reducing the resolution, also try a different file type, either jpeg or tiff etc..,if all failes check to see if you have the latest driver(s) update for your scanner.
