Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

9 Answers

I own a Cannon Canoscan LiDE 70 scanner. When I use the copy option to print using my printer I get the message "Unable to scan. Make sure that there is enough memory on the target disc." I have an HP color laser printer 2600n. I've tried to reinstall the software and close down all other applications without success

    I feel this is a scanner problem and not a printer problem. I can scan in the photo mode and save it to a file without problem. I can't use the copy mode.

  • michaelkett Feb 11, 2009

    How do I fix it?

  • michaelkett Feb 15, 2009

    I'm not sure I understand the solution to remove files from the target drive. How do I determine where that is?

step1: 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.
step2:
Create a new admin user account and then attempt the operation again under that account
To create a new user account, follow the steps below.

Check the hard drive to see if you have ample space for this info. if that checks out, you may have driver issues and will have to update them. the updated drivers may be on the manufactures website under the support tab.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your concern could best be described in its manner of operation.

  • When you scan in photo mode, it is saved in a particular folder. That folder has unlimited free space (technically limited to whatever free space you may have in your hard drive);
  • When you copy to print, the scanned copy is initially stored in your Temp folder. If the set allocation is already full, then error as you posted would be displayed. To address this, you can try:
  1. deleting the contents of your Temp folder; click on Empty Recycle Bin; and/or
  2. right click on your Recycle Bin, increase 'Maximum size of Recycle Bin'.
Hope that this be of help. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Hi there
Perform a clean up of the disk where the files are saved to, delete any unwanted doc, pics, movies and tunes, also uninstall any unused software, this will clear space on the drive which sounds like the initial problem, also download ccleaner to clean the temporary internet and temp files that are stored in hidden file in drive c:

What image quality are you setting the scanner to when the COpy menu opens?

Posted on Feb 10, 2009

  • Mark Egan Feb 11, 2009

    The Canon website says that if you are attempting the Copy command using the Canoscan Toolbox, then to uninstall the application and reinstall using the latest version.

    You indicated having uninstalled and reinstalled, but, did you check that you were installing the latest version? If you just reinstalled what you had, then check that it was version 12.1.0. To check, you can usually open the program and there will be an "About" button somewhere within the program.

    The website also indicates it could also be where the files are being saved. -




    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.

    Reply back if any of these worked.

Check your scanner software sttings and change the target folder.

    This problem happens often when you save the scan on an external disk.

    Open the scanner software and check settings. There must be a setting for the target folder, this may be pointing to CD or an USB memory.

    If you do not manage to do the settings you can also do a system restore to a date before you had the problem for first time.

    You can start Sistem restore from :

    Start>>Programs>>Accessories>>System tools>>System restore.

    or from the control panel

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.

Is there a calibration option for Canon Canoscan Lide 70?


Im not sure if this specific scanner has one But what it would do is calibrate the lights in the scanner to pick up colors better and it would calibrate the position of the scanning bar.

Installing CanoScan Lide 20 / Lide 30 into Mac OS X 10.5.5


I found this scanner at a garage sale today, and had trouble finding this info myself. Finally stumbled upon this site ( http://cadwell.livejournal.com/39545.html )

I'm using it on a Powermac G5 but both the driver and toolbox app say they are univeral binary. Hopefully this gets you up and running too:

CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OS X 10.5
This technical help may seem completely out of place on this art blog but after scouring the internet for 3 hours trying to set my 6 year old scanner up on my new MacBook, I found this info half way down a lengthy comments section of a random blog. So I thought I'd post it here (slightly altered) as a message in a bottle to anyone else in need of it.

How to set up CanoScan LiDE 30 on Mac OSX 10.5
STEP 1:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=6623
STEP 2:
Select MAC OS X
STEP 3:
Download BOTH:
LiDE 20/LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver. 7.0.1.1aX
(Mac OS X)

lide20lide30n670un676un1240uosx7011aen.dmg
CanoScan Toolbox Ver. 4.1.3.0X
(Mac OS X)

CSTb4130MXE.dmg.gz
STEP 4:
INSTALL CanoScan Toolbox Ver. 4.1.3.0X
STEP 5:
INSTALL LiDE 30 Scanner Driver Ver. 7.0.1.1aX . Make sure Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins is selected as the install location.
STEP 6:
You will be asked to RESTART. You should.
STEP 7:
When you run CanoScan you can choose Photoshop as the default program to open the image in once it has scanned. You do not need Photoshop to open using Rosetta for this to work.
NOTE: If you want to scan directly from within Photoshop CS3, you need to copy the driver 'ScanGear CS 7.0X' which is found in Applications>CanoScan Toolbox 4.1>Plug-Ins into the photoshop pluggins folder, Applications> Adobe Photoshop CS3>Plug-Ins>Import/Export. You also need to open photoshop in Rosetta mode. Apple + I on the photoshop icon and select 'Open using Rosetta'. I would not recommend using this method though.
STEP 8:
Go to System Preferences>Accounts>Login Items and remove both of the following:
N067U_ButtonManager.app
N124U_ButtonManager.app
STEP 9:
SCAN.

Error message


Hi toolpusher

Try going to CanoScan Toolbox > Settings and reset the 'defaults' button at bottom... this will restore factory settings and hopefully fix your problem... The other error message you can expect to get is "unable to scan - insufficent memory, check your **** space' (or something similar)... same fix works for both! ...Have had both messages on mine, sounds like a semi-regular conflict on some sort, but seems to be easily fixed. Good luck :-)

Head for the Canoscan Toolbox and click on "Settings".
Under "select folder where temporary files are saved", click on "browser".
Choose where you want the scanned item to be sent and then click 'OK".
This works for me.

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.

Out of Focus Scans


You have some limited color adjustment settings in ScanGear that you can play around with. I would recommend recalibrating the scanner. This is done in ScanGear Advanced mode under Image Settings.
