Are you pressing ok on the printer? all of your scanning should be done via the MP460 navigator. check your applications under the Canon Utlitiy and click on the MP460 Navigator button. scanning needs to be done via that - not the actual printer. refer to the dialogue box when you are on the MP460 navigator. lower left area has a Save bar, when you click on it tow options: save to PC or save as PDF.

Cannot view document on screen after scanning

First look at the settings within the scanner and see if you can save it directly to the program of your choice. You may have to browse to find an appropriate program. Saving documents and pictures directly to your desktop helps to find it more easily. When you find the photo or document you have scanned, Right Click, Open With, and select a program like Windows Photo Viewer or Windows Photo Gallery. In that same window, check the option near the bottom that says Always Open With

I bought the Canon Canoscan N1240u flatbed scanner. I downloaded the drivers and plugged in the cord that came with it but it doesn't do anything.

Just to be sure, did you install the driver in addition to downloading it? Full software or basic driver. The software must be installed before connecting the data cable. What OS are you using? (if you have Vista 64-bit, it is not compatible) If you didn't install the software, uninstall the OS driver and disconnect the data cable before attempting to install the Canon software. Otherwise see the notes for scanning with other software.

First are you trying to use the scanner buttons? These will only work if the full software is installed. For the buttons to work, you have to set up the scanner button destinations in the Canon software first. Also a monitoring program must be running for the button presses to work.

So try scanning from the computer first. If you still get an error, try a new data cable. If you are using a USB hub, try a direct connection. Make sure your USB ports work with a known working device. You can also check if the ports are disabled for security (in the Device Manager for Windows) or power savings (an advanced setting from the Screen Saver).

Once you have scanned successfully from the computer, go to the Settings section of the Toolbox to set the default destinations for the scan buttons.

If you only installed the basic driver, you can scan with Paint (XP or Vista), File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan. Vista also has Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) and Photo Gallery to acquire scans. I don't know the Mac software. Third-party software will also work if installed.

I hope this helps.

I have an Agfa snapscan e20 and would like to use it from my Macbook. The scanner is an old thing. Is this possible and can you give me software to download? Thanks

First thing you should do is after you have connected the scanner to your computer, go to Finder, navigate to Applications and then double-click on the "Image Capture" icon. Press the "Scan" button on your scanner. The Image Capture application will recognize the connected scanner and will display a preview of the picture. Select any special options you want for the scanned picture and click "Scan" in the lower-right corner of the preview window. A scanned image of the picture will now be saved to the "Pictures" section of your user folder. I am advising you to try this as your MAC OS might recognize the scanner without the drivers.

If that doesn't work, try the drivers from Agfa website for SnapScan E20. Website doesn't specify for which MAC OS version they are. In addition, here's a link to th manual.

Computer illiterate needs help on how to scan documents from canon/serial#jcyb25729 pixma mp460 into windows/vista software

All you need to do is go into Navigator and select photo/document, this will take you to a screen where you can select photo/document etc. Then select resolution (the higher the dpi the better the quality, but slows down scanning). Follow the instructions. When scan is complete a small picture will appear, and a dialogue box asking if you wish to scan again, if you do put a new document on the cover and press scan. If it doesn't look right ignore the picture and rescan. When done exit at the dialogue box. The small pictures can be selected and edited or turned around using the icons. You can save one image at a time just by selecting the image and not the others. If you want to make a PDF, then select the images in the order you want the pages to appear in and save as a PDF.
