You need to set up the destinations in the Canon software. First launch the Canon Scan-Gear Toolbox. The Scan button on the scanner is the same as Scan-1 button by default but no software is linked to this button. Click on the Scan-1 button then choose Set. Then set your application that you will want to work on the scanned image. Select your application (Photoshop Elements, for example) - the exe file if using Windows. (You may need to browse the Program Files folder and then the individual application folder (C:\Program Files in recent versions).) Then click Open and then Apply to confirm this. You can also select the file type that you want the scans to be saved as in this settings window.
If you want to change the scan destinations, then click on Settings (on the far right). You will see the drop-down menus for each of the scanner buttons. Select the desired function for the scan button and click OK. (Scan-1, Scan-2 and Scan-3 can be linked to other software.)

Try scanning from your PC, if you have a program that will allow it... if you have Word '97, you can do it like this:
With your scanner ready and the image on the scanner glass, in Clip Organizer, on the File menu, point to Add Clips to Organizer, and then click From Scanner or Camera.
In the Insert Picture from Scanner or Camera dialog box, under Device, select the scanner.
The new clip appears in the My Collections folder, in a folder named after your scanner
If you do not have Word '97, but a program that SHOULD work but doesn't have the correct driver, go to www.twain.org for the latest twain-compliant drivers for your scanner! You may also be able to find a simple scanning app (in the downloads section) at www.cnet.com

New Computer is it?
Big troubles with drivers for scanners from vista.
Scanners have a built in processor that runs all its operations on command from the computer.
Vista is not speaking the same language the scanner wants to hear.
Got onto HP tech support- I don't hold out much hope for you re this.
