Question about Canon PIXMA MP510 All-In-One InkJet Printer

OS X 10.5 Leopard & Canon PIXMA MP510

I recently updated my Mac Operating System to Leopard, and now the scanning feature on my Canon PIXMA MP510 won't work.
I can print just fine, but my scanner doesn't work.
Does anyone know if perhaps Canon has come out with a patch for this?

HP Photosmart C3180 All-in-One printer, Scanner, Copier will not scan with Mac OS 10.4. The button flashes for a few seconds, then stops and nothing happens. No image appears on my computer screen.

All lot of those printers came with two separate driver's disc. Make sure that you are installing the correct for the mac and not windows. If you are you can go to the hp website and do a search on there website for the driver for mac operating system.

Pixma500 and Mac Leopard

Important information from Canon

The manuals off the Drivers and Downloads tab below can be read with Adobe Reader (free). If you need a copy use the following link and click the Get Adobe Reader Button.

The Drivers and Downloads tab from the following will access the available Mac OS X software -- Choose Mac OS X as the Operating System

Using the preceeding link again this time click the support and service tab Enter Leopard in the search text and click Search

Provides 30 additional links to information that may be useful.

When the scanning software is made available in the future (per the first link), I expect you will find it on the Drivers and Downloads tab.

Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Printer works with Snow Leopard OS?

The MX870 is compatible with Mac OS X, all versions. I think the CD that comes with the unit will have the Mac Snow Leopard drivers on it, but if not you will be able to download them here.

How can I scan to the Mac

It will depend on a few things:

The type of printer/scanner you have (HP, Canon, Lexmark, etc) and the operating system installed on the Mac.

You can find the operating system number by clicking on the Apple Menu (top left corner of the screen) and pressing "About This Mac". In the center of this window it will say "version 10.5.8 or 10.6.2 or 10.something)".

If it's 10.5.8 - that means you are running Leopard, and you may have to download updated printer drivers from the maker of your printer.

If it's 10.6 - update to 10.6.2 (apple menu > software update).

If it's 10.6.2 - restart the computer and disconnect the scanner. Restart it and connect it. Snow Leopard should discover the correct drivers automatically.

After that, all scanning is done in the Image (located within Applications > Utilities.

Happy scanning!

Pixma mp510 with Mac


I had the same problem. First you want to install what is called MP Navigator, you can google that and download it easily. Then after 4 hours of searching I found out you need the driver from this link:

It's the scanner driver. Hope that helps!
