try checking if you have completely installed all the drivers for your
printer. scanning and copying dont usually needs drivers because you
can do that even without a computer. but scanning requires your scanner
to be read by your pc. try checking for the scanner driver from the cd
that came from your printer.
I had the same problem on my Mac. I downloaded two things off Canon's website and all is now working:-
1) Scanner driver (ScanGear for Mac OR MP Drivers for PC)
2) MP Navigator software
Visit: http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010249.asp and choose your drivers.
Restart your machine (with the MP40 switched off) after downloading
Switch on, and press Scan... et voila!
NOTE: after putting my Mac in slep mode, the scan button didn't function, but all I had to do was switch the MP450 off then on again for my Mac to recognise it.
Hope this helps!
Maybe your mp 460 printer is doing the same thing mine is. My problem is that when I try to print from the computer, the printer wants to copy instead, so a blank page comes out. I don't have a solution suggested yet. Jayceedee
