What scanner drivers do I need for scannerCS5600F .Just had new hard drive in iMac running OSX Lion 10.7.5


No additional drivers are necessary. Your CanonScan 5600F is listed in "Printer and Scanner software available for download," http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3669 .

To add your scanner, simply plug it in. If it does not appear in Apple Menu > System Preferences > Print & Scan, you may need to run Software Update (also from the Apple Menu, second item down), and then click the plus ( + ) button in the lower-left of Print & Scan, select your scanner, and then add the printer.

The default scanning application in OS X is Image Capture. After completing the above steps, open Applications > Image Capture and you should see your scanner listed on the left.

Disconnect the scanner from the computer. Uninstall driver software, shut down and restart the Comp. Reinstall the driver. (http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0036991.asp?model= ). connect the scanner and the system will report USB device plugged in. This should work.

I plug in my cannon lide 20 scanner and it doesn't stop scanning


I had this problem with my old Canon scanner and my new Canon scanner. I mistakenly threw my old scanner away, believing the problem to be terminal, only to find the new scanner demonstrates the same problem. The problem appears on whatever computer I install the drivers on (I have 3 computers). Constantly unplugging and plugging the scanner back into the USB port eventually sorts the problem out, i.e. the scanning arm will go to the 'home' position and stay there waiting for some scanning action.
I presented this problem to technical support of Canon, and this was their response.....

*************************
Thank you for contacting Canon.

It appears that your Scanner is receiving commands from your PC to scan. That means that the scanner can only operated when a command is given by your PC, the scanner can not operate all by itself.

In that case we suggest you contact the manufacturer of your PC or Microsoft for further assistance in solving this problem with your operating system.

I hope this information is of use to you.

*************************
Well there you go, the biggest example of 'pass the buck' you may have ever seen.
Having been a software enginner and using computers for the last 25 years, I sort of don't believe this - AT ALL. My only conclusion is to get a new scanner and make sure it isn't a Canon.

If you find out the answer to this problem, and I haven't thrown my scanner away by that time, then I'd be interested in it.

Scan function won't work with Mac OS10.5.5 & Airport


I plugged the printer cable directly to my laptop instead of trying to scan using the airport wireless router. Plugging it in did the trick.

Apple Canon CanoScan N670U


Are you referring to the scanner or the computer not having a light on?
The scanner only lights up when it is scanning. If your computer is running ok, check the Apple System Profiler to see if the scanner is detected. What Mac OS are you using? Leopard is not supported with this scanner model.

Apple laptop M8407 vs. n670u canoscan


Keep in mind that connecting a specific scanner to the computer would have nothing to do with the computer now powering on unless there are physical computer hardware problems. Disconnect any uneccessary external peripherals from the computer (printers, scanners, webcams, etc.) and see if the computer will power on. Remove the computer battery and put it back in. Check power connections and test to make sure the electrical outlet is working by plugging something else into it.

Canon mp610 scanning problem


The readme says that some USB hubs have an issue.

I was having problems and was connected via a hub. I removed the hub and connected the printer directly to the back of the PC and voila scanning is all good.
