Canon 4400F scanner won't scan

Hi

I have recently purchased a canon 4400F scanner which until a few days ago was working fine.

Now, each time I try to scan I get this message

Unable to scan. Make sure there is enough space on the target disk.

I am scanning to my C drive which is 74.5gb, of which only 8.21gb is in use.

Do you kown how to overcome this problem?

Thanks

    Having the exact same issue - was working fine, then all of a sudden it stopped working, even tho there is tons of free disk space.

    I have a CanoScan 8600F and had the same issue and I also have loads of disk space left.

    Found the solution for me was to perform the following:-

    1. In the CanoScan Toolbox, click the Settings button.
    2. Where its says 'Select Folder Where Temporary Files are Save:' temporarily change the location to be another folder.
    3. Click OK.
    4. Go back into Settings
    5. Click Defaults
    6. Click OK.

    You should be able to carry on scanning as you did before.

    Hope this helps.

From the Canon Toolbox select setting and change the location for the temporary files are saved. Select a temp folder somewhere.

This worked for me this time, no guarantee it will work the next time.

How do you get rid of the Canon DR-7550C -4630 error "The device could not be locked"?


It's usually a software conflict.
If you have multiple scanning programs, the one of them may have it locked. Especially if you have a scanning program that runs as a service.

Cannon 4400F Scanner


I had the same problem with about 1 out of every 16 slides when I first got the scanner. The only way I found around it was to rearrange the slides and try again. I started scanning through the ScanGear software instead of Canon Toolbox, and haven't had that problem since. I've scanned about 6,000 slides and negatives so far.

Trying to make a copy- worked last week?


This is most likely only happening when attempting to scan through the CanoScan Toolbox. You can scan directly through ArcSoft PhotoStudio which came with the scanner. However, the error through Toolbox is likely caused by some limitation or restriction in the computer, possibly permissions of some sort. You may try deleting temp files from the Temp folder on the hard drive.
