    i just want to mention that indeed it says you need to have at least version 3.01 to be able to use the vista patch and scan with the capture perfect.
    you can try to install your 3.0 version and then the patch and see maybe it will work.
    if not i suggest you contact canon for clarification how can you get version 3.0.1 or above.
    if you can't get it, you will have to use other scanning softwares like picasa or office tools.
    or other photo softwares.

Canon scanner whiting out one side of page


Hi, The Camera (CCD) would appear to be faulty. I service scanners and I have come accross this problem on this model twice. It was not worth replaceing the camera due to the low value of the scanner. Cost of part plus labour would be too high.

Canon DR-2580C scanner only scanning half the page. What could be the problem?


Select Auto for page size. The scanning software displays scanned image in many options, including 'fit'. Choose 'fit' so that you see complete image.

Black at the bottom of scanned pages


There should not be a thick black line at the bottom, but could be from several things, light coming in from somewhere is my first guess, toner is almost out or the ribbon is getting stuck on the inside at that point. You may have to call Cannon and ask them.

Dr-2580C Grabs more than one page at a time!! Losing Info!


If the rollers are old, you need to change it, else clean with a damp cloth. Dont use solvents. Ensure the papers are not sticky, loosen them if required.

I have a new DR-5010C scanner. I used to use the


I havent used Canon 2580C and hence cant comment on Scan Panel. But you can download SU5000 or Captureperfect 2.0 from Canon website (http://software.canon-europe.com/). This is easy to use and probably offers more features as compared to ScanPanel. Canon 5010C is a higher model as compared to 2589C and Captureperfect may offer better user interface.

Canon DR 2580C Scanning issue


In Captureperfect, select page size as 'Scanners Maximum'. Select automatic paper size, check the output now. If you select bigger paper size and smaller paper, you will see lack output, outside the paper area.

Try and scan a white paper. If the output is black, then may be the LEDs are not glowing, likely the wire is loose. Actually it is not easily reacheable! Try duplex scanning to check if both scan modules are fine.

If the scanners keeps blinking while powering on, it is because it has not been intialised. Check for loose shreds of paper in the paper path. Unless the scanner intialises, it cannot scan. If simpel 'countonly' option works, then the scanner is okay.

Streaks in image scanned by Canon DR-2580C Path-Through


The staples cannot reach the sensors. They could have scratched the glass above the sensors. Clean the glass with IsoPropyl alcohol. Try scanning a few images to find if the scratch marks are on the same place on all images. Once confirmed that the glass is scratched, you can change the glass. You need a technical expertise to change or call service staff.

You must have 'checked' the multipage option in the scanning software. Try scanning first page only and store as say temp1 and later all pages as temp2. If the file size is different you can deduce that the scanner has scanned all pages! To view multipage files, you need a proper software.
