Did you install it properly, and wait until prompted to connect the usb cable? See here.
See links to scanning functions for your printer here and here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Usually the scanner and printer have separate drivers, even though both are included in one machine.

Check HP's website to see if there's a separate driver for the scanner or a program which installs both drivers from the same setup program. You might have to check device manager to see if a scanner is listed and if the driver is properly installed.

In XP and VISTA, go to control panel/device manager and see if there are any yellow caution signs by the 'imaging device' icon. If there is no 'imaging device' icon, either the driver is not installed or not installed properly.

One additional factor... HP usually requires that the driver be installed before the hardware is connected. After drivers are installed, New Hardware Wizard should find your HP devices and install them properly. If not, you might want to unistall them altogether and reinstall.

Hope this helps.

you can buy a print server to connect to your printer to the network. however could you please list the printer type you have? some printers do not work over the network with a print server on mac.
the printer will still function as long as you got a phone line to it for faxes however some features like scanning will not work over the network.

I've connected my IR1023iF to the network. The printer and fax work fine but the scanner doesn't work at all.


If you've hooked up the copier via ethernet cable then it needs to be setup for scan to email, FTP or scan to folder (smb). This can be done through the copiers web interface which is accessed by typing the copiers IP Address into your web browser. If you've hooked the copier up via USB, then there is 'toolbar' software that you would use for scanning. If you need the software, let me know and I can post it on an FTP site. Just an fyi...I'm pretty sure that you can't hook up both ethernet and USB at the same time.

We use Abby 8.0 finereader with kofax VRS. We can not gt the scanner or Abby to reconize the VRS with the scanner hooked up. Everything works fine with another scanner.


Use CapturePerfect ver 2.0 downloadable free. Ver 3.0 is priced. http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0022439.asp?model= though this is under Canon 5020, it works with 9080C.
Have you loaded Device drivers, if not download from http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010035.asp
Once the driver is loaded you can even use Microsoft Imaging to scan. CapturePerfect is easy and brings out the added features of Canon 9080C.

MFC425CN will not scan through network


In my experience with printer all in ones they never scan over the network. So your best bet it to just hook the printer to a pc scan it and then you can share it on the network.

Try changing your usb printer cable with a different brand. I have had lost of machine not wanting to scan because of faulty usb cables, even though you can print it refuses to scan. If this still is not helpful, try downloading the latest drivers from samsungs website.

Canoscan 4200f Problem with Vista 32 bit


I got mine working after experiencing the same problem.

I had mine hooked up to a USB hub, after I hooked it directly to the USB ports in the back of my computer, everything just worked fine.

Weird that it worked on the USB hub on XP and not vista though.
