    What is the model name of the Cannon printer you are trying to use? With Mac, you can sometimes use drivers of other printers to install a printer that is not supported. For instance, a Dell Laserjet is not supported by Mac, but you can use a Lexmark Mac driver to install that printer.

Canon's website will have all of their driver files available for download. If your model is not listed, then it is not compatible with your Mac.

Why can I not run my Lide 500F scanner with a Windows 7 PC?


I have a cannon flat scanner 2000 & I came across this once before, I uninstalled all the cannon drivers then re-started the PC & next instead of using the Cannon drivers, I used Microsoft's Drivers & it's worked fine ever since.
I hope this works for yourself as well. Best Wishes. Malcolm.

Hi Doris

Canon CanoScan LiDE 60

The drivers for this scanner are available from the official Canon Support and Downloads pages for this scanner for Mac OSX, Linux, Unix and Windows 98 to Windows 7 Operating systems. Select your Operating System from the Drop menu and then click on the download files to download the Drivers and all the remaining scanner software:

CanoScan ToolBox
Deldrv
ScaGear CS
User Guide

http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010220.asp

Your installed drivers may be corrupt.

Start > control panel > (uninstall a program) add or remove programs > highlight all Cannon Scanner software and remove ALL components of it > apply > OK > restart computer > download and install drivers and software > restart computer > test scan.

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer is presented in general terms. If yours is a non-Windows and non-Mac Operating System and my answer seems to be of some relevance to you, please consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question (although it seems no drivers for this product are currently available for other Operating Systems). Please include information about the Operating System. Doing so helps us makes faster, more accurate and more assured Remote Diagnostics leading to better quality and more useful Advice, Answers, Guidelines , How-Tos and Solutions.

The term "Drivers" is meaningless without associating it with a specific item of hardware AND an Operating System. There are no such things as " Canon CanoScan LiDE 60 Drivers". There are XP VGA LAN Drivers, Vista Graphics Drivers or Windows7 LAN Drivers, Mac OSX Tiger WLAN Drivers. Mac OSX Leopard Epson Sx100 Printer Drivers, Mac OSX Lion Webcam Drivers, Linux Red Hat Midi Controller Drivers, Linux Ubuntu Media Player Drivers, etc.

Although drivers seem to mainly be about hardware, they are actually mainly about software. The Driver does not physically control the Motherboard's Devices. The BIOS and the Operating System do. What the Driver does is (just like a human interpreter for a guest who speaks a different language from his host), introduce the Device to the Operating System and help them to communicate with one another, with the Driver taking instructions from both and passing it back and forth between them.

So when one mentions Drivers, one must also mention the Operating System it will be talking to. In order for that to be possible, the 2 must share a common language. If they do not, then the role of 'interpreter' is impossible, because, then neither the Driver nor the Device will be able to understand what the Operating System is saying.

Download and install the correct Drivers for both your scanner and your computer's Operating System.

I hope this helps.

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.

Failed to open a driver


OK. Here is what you do. (I just did this on an Intel Mac running OX10.5.6)
First go to the cannon site and get the program (File name: deldrvosx1510en.dmg) to uninstall the drivers for your scanner. Also, delete copies of the scan toolbox that you may have installed in your application folder.

Then go back to the canon site for the LiDE 25 and install the drivers (file name: lide25osx11030en.dmg.) This part is very important, in the middle of the install a dialog will popup asking if it is OK to run something like deldvr, DO NOT ALLOW IT TO RUN, HIT CANCEL.
reboot.
Install the canon toolbox software (it should be version 4.9.x not 5.0). File name is : cstbosx4934ej4.dmg
You should now be good to go.
What a %^#%$#-up process on Canons part.

Cannot scan to mac from a cannon mf4150


There is not yet Mac driver support for the scanner portion of this printer.  The printer should work fine, but no scanner as of yet.  Too bad no one told me at the Office store when I bought it.
