How can I use my second monitor on the iMac via VPN/RDP?


Hi Jessiejeh55,

It sounds like you are using the Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection client for Mac.

  1. Open Remote Desktop Connection
  2. Select the connection you wish to use with both displays
  3. Right-click and choose Edit
  4. Check the "Use all monitors" box at the bottom
Thanks

Hi I need to scan a document and when i hit scan no action is taken. I have the MF4150 and im using it on a mac thank you


This unit does not scan with the Mac OS. The only available functions are: Print/PC Fax. The drivers are here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/imageclass_series/imageclass_mf4150#DriversAndSoftware . Use the drop-down menu to select Mac OS X. Note only Printer and Fax drivers are available.

To the best of my knowledge, you need to run a Windows virtual PC with the unit installed to that virtual PC or a second computer running Windows to get the Scan functions. For the virtual computer option, you will need a licensed version of Windows, the Windows version of the drivers from the above link and a program like Parallels.

I wish that I had better news.

When I try to scan from printer to computer I get 'scan error'. See documentation. I am trying to scan to a mac - does that matter?


You need to use the grey cd to install the software onto your Mac if you have not already done so. If you don't have the Mac CD you can download the installation software and all drivers from HP here (select your operating system first).

If you have installed it aready, try uninstalling and then reinstalling using the HP website to obtain the updated drivers etc. rather than your CD.

Once you have uninstalled the software, disconnect your printer and then restart your computer. Do not re-connect your printer until you have reinstalled the software.

To verify that the software has installed properly, look for the HP Solution Centre on your desktop, double click on the icon and check that both "scan picture" and |"scan document" are showing.

Hope that helps!

Trying to scan a photo from my HP Photosmart 2575 to my Macbook


Hi,
You can't scan directly into iPhoto however the software that came with your HP scanner should have something that can. If you don't have the software you will need to download it from the much easier to navigate HP.com site. Once you have scanned them using HPScan you can transfer them into iPhoto by drag and drop from app to app or Finder to iPhoto.

All the best

HP Director won't work


What I did to "fix" it was to completely uninstall the printer and reinstall it as if for the first time. Then I had to download new drivers for it. I found that out by checking for updates. The Director icon on my desktop till doesn't seem to do anything but I can now scan by hitting the scan button on the printer. It doesn't work like it used to but I'm just adjusting to the new paths I have to take.

Are you getting an error/ red light on the scanner button when its on? when scanning from Paint ( File, then from scanners and cameras) does it freeze as well? or only when using epson scan? make sure cable is directly connected from the scanner to your computer, no hubs or anything.. keep me posted.

Have a nice day!!
