I had the same problem and solved it like this:

I found out that the directory of Toolbox 5.0 (usually \Program files\Canon\CanoScan Toolbox Ver5.0)contains an outdated library module called "Msvcrt.dll" dated 02/03/1999. This file in my Windows XP home edition located in \Windows\system32 is much more recent (april 2008 !!!).

I replaced the old file with the newer one and now my Canoscan 4400f works fine.

It is also possible to download separatly from Internet a newer version of this file "Msvcrt.dll"

Maybe this solution will be helpful for some users.

This is most likely only happening when attempting to scan through the CanoScan Toolbox. You can scan directly through ArcSoft PhotoStudio which came with the scanner. However, the error through Toolbox is likely caused by some limitation or restriction in the computer, possibly permissions of some sort. You may try deleting temp files from the Temp folder on the hard drive.

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

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.)

Using Canoscan Lide 70. When trying to scan receive message "not enough room on target disk" When I reinstall Toolbox it works (for a while, then same repeats).


When you scan a picture, you send it to a "Target" folder which you can set up in your scan options or settings.

At a guess your current destination or target folder is getting to large for the hard drive that its registered on

You've 2 options, clean out the target drive or use the scan options to send your pictures to a new destination with plenty of space.

Do a "reset".
•Go into the CanoScan toolbox,
•click Settings,
•click the Defaults button on the bottom
•then click OK.
It will take a few seconds to reset and you should be good to go.

Won't scan - says not enough disk space.


I had the same problem. Solved it by going into the "CanoScan Toolbox" - "Settings" - and pressing the "Defaults" button in that panel - and then "OK" button. Afterwards everything worked fine. Hope this helps you.

LiDE 600DF - Unable to scan


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.
