My mp160 won't scan. I hooked it up to a new I-Mac computer

I have a Cnnon mp160 that worked well on my PC. Now I got a I-Mac computer and hooked it up to the usb port.  It registers with the computer but it won't scan documents.  Do I need some other software?

    In my situation, the MP160 will not scan about 17 out of 20 tries On Max OS 10.5 Tried reloading software, drivers, replacing printer cable, changing USB slots, etc. But it works fine on another computer with OS 10.5. So what gives?

Scanning can be performed with the MP Navigator software. Please open the MP Navigator from your Desktop or the Canon Utilities listing of the Start Menu (Windows) or Applications folder (Mac).

My ScanSnap has worked flawlessly for years. I just tried to scan and got the following message: undefined error occurred.(0xffffdcf7) Won't scan. Tried to reboot - no luck. Let me know...


The same thing happened to me. In a nutshell, you have to install new drivers. Have you recently upgraded your system to SnowLeopard or Lion? I did, and that's what went wrong.

To do:
1. Make sure you have the latest ScanSnap manager: http://www.fujitsu.com/global/support/computing/peripheral/scanners/drivers/mac.html
Install that.
2. Get the Lion update: http://www.fujitsu.com/global/support/computing/peripheral/scanners/drivers/mac-mg22.html
Install that.
3. Open the new ScanSnap Manager (v 2.2). Delete the old one from your dock, so you don't get confused.
4. Scan away.

I don't know what software i need for my Canon Pixma Mp160 printer with scanner. The printer works but when i press SCAN nothing happens; i was told i needed software. Are they free? Where can i find it?


the scanner doesnot work like that. when you load the all in one driver cd, the scanner driver loads with it. there should be a scanner icon somewhere on the desktop or in my computer. it onlt scans from the computer by putting the document on the glass and press scan button on computer and it will scan and save on the pc.

I have a cannon MP 160 printer/scanner. It does not work on a Mac


Uninstall all your drivers (and delete the preferences) and download the Mac drivers from this link. The drivers that came with your printer were developed before Snow Leopard came out.

Can i still scan photos if my ink is empty


YES, it will scan without the printer cartridges. I picked up a Canon MP160 for free at a yard sale this morning. It didn't come with either ink cartridge. When I powered it up, both the cartridge lights came on but it didn't display any error codes. I installed the Mac OS X scanner driver, and MP Navigator. I then used it to scan a 99-page text document into a PDF file. I have not installed the Mac OS X printer driver for it.

How do i scan a document to my mac with a canon mp160?


Run MP Navigator (you can get it and the scanner driver from Canon if you don't already have it). Click on the leftmost tab, then click on "Photos/Documents (Platen)" for basic scanning. For more advanced options click on "Open Scanner Driver" instead.
