Hi Peter

Have had the same problem, seems to come and go a bit... Quickest & easiest fix is to go to CanoScan toolboox > Settings then press the 'defauls' button at bottom... this sets everything back to factory settings and should fix your problem. Cheers.

Try removing temporary files from computer. Have heard this before but haven't seen any positive solutions. You should be able to scan from applications without issue, other than Toolbox.

SOURCE: LiDE 600DF - Unable to scan

I think I might have solved my own problem, at least for the time being. If my theory is correct, then it might be a permanent solution.

I had been goint through the "CanoScan Toolbox 5" configuration line by line to see if anything would suggest a solution when I noticed that the "Folder for where temporary files are stored" had an enormously long path of C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Canon\TB50\...... By the time the temporary filename is added to the end, it may have exceeded the permissible length the system can handle. So I changed it to C:\Temp and it all started to work for me.

Worth a try for my fellow sufferers.

Can not scan. Get message "Unable to scan. Make sure there is enough space on target disk". Changed default temporary disk location, have plenty of disk space.


Had this before and after a day of playing about with cleaning out the windows temp folders, I simply uninstalled all the driver and toolbox software, downloaded the latest version from Canon's site and reinstalled it. After doing a bit of research, found out it was caused by a windows update conflicting with the drivers

Not enough space on target disc


If you are scanning in color choose JPG option as the file size is small. Delete unwanted files in the target location and create space.

Scanner sends message "Unable to scan. Make sure there is enough space on target disk"


Check the resolution settings.  If you're trying to scan at 9600dpi, the image will be huge, it may not fit into ram either, so the swap file would be used and you would need twice the file space to scan the image.

Scanning at 600dpi is generally fine enough for most uses (300 or less for web use), including scanning photographs (you may want to scan negatives at 1200 though.)

A window appears saying "unable to scan. Be sure there is enough space in the destination disk."


Your hard drive may be getting full...
Or the account (user name) you are using on the computer does not have enough "rights" to create the output file.
Assuming it is Drive C:

Open [My Computer]
Right-click Drive C: (one time)
and select "Properties"
In the [General] tab, locate and click on [Disk Cleanup]
The system will harmlessly "scan" your hard drive to try to free up space. It is not deleting or compressing anything.
When the scan is complete, a list will appear, place a check on:
Tempoary files, Temporary Internet Files,
(do not "compress" any files)
and click [OK]
Try your scan again.

This is a temporary fix. You need more hard disk space.

Connot make a pdf scan. get a reply thet there not enough space. installed latest drivers. working with xp


Issue: ERROR: Insufficient space on target disk
Solution: Change where temporary files are saved (Toolbox)

Change where temporary files are saved (Toolbox) For an unknown reason, the computer is not allowing temporary data to be written to the general folder chosen by Toolbox at the time of install.
  1. From the CanoScan Toolbox, click the Settings button.
  2. At the bottom you will see a section that states, "Select Folder Where Temporary Files are Saved:".
    Click the Browse button.
  3. Browse to a folder, such as C:\Temp, and then click OK.
  4. Click OK again to exit the Settings window.
  5. Try scanning again.

It will take a few seconds to reset and you should be good to go.

Head for the Canoscan Toolbox and click on "Settings".
Under "select folder where temporary files are saved", click on "browser".
Choose where you want the scanned item to be sent and then click 'OK".
This works for me.
