Question about Canon CanoScan 4400f MultiFunction Color Printer

Attempting to scan a document and the Toolbox software reports an error: "Unable to scan. Make sure there is enough space on the target disk" with an OK button. The target disk has over 100 Gig of available space. Tried other drives, same error. Tried to copy to printer, same error. Any ideas? Same error "Unable to scan...not enough space on target dusk"

The problem that you are having is that you are scanning at to high of a resolution.  I had this same problem.  I dropped my scan resolution down to about 1200dpi and worked fine.  The problem is that the scanned document would actually be to large for your computer to process, due to either a lack of RAM or CPU power.  Could also be caused by the flow of information through the USB is more than what your computer can handle.  1200 dpi is probably more quality than the average person would need.  Most black and white copies can be made at 600 with no difference in quality.  So, set the resolution down to 1200 or lower and try again.  Hope it helps.

    Oh, and try scanning at higher resolutions, but check "Display the Scanner Driver" box in the tool box.  That should clear up a known issue too.

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

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.

Error message: Can not scan. Not enough space on target disk


I have just cured this"not enough space on the target disc" on my set up.I had the problem from day one after buying scanner but learned to get around it.Today I went into Toolbox and opened settings and made a note of the target address. Then checked properties of the target folder and found there was 86mb in a space for 80mb.This was the default setting chosen by the installation programme. I went to my documents and made a new folder and called it Canoscan, clicked ok and it became the new target and the fault is gone. Hope it works for others.

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.

Trying to make a copy- worked last week?


This is most likely only happening when attempting to scan through the CanoScan Toolbox. You can scan directly through ArcSoft PhotoStudio which came with the scanner. However, the error through Toolbox is likely caused by some limitation or restriction in the computer, possibly permissions of some sort. You may try deleting temp files from the Temp folder on the hard drive.

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.

Canon 440f won't scan


I had exactly as described on my new 4400f scanner. Have resolved by uninstalling the toolbox software (it was at 5.0.1.2), downloading toolbox s/w from canon site, file name is S6A04mux.exe - toolbox 5.0.1.1 Installed this and all works from the scanner front panel

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.
