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.

To be able to do that without problems you have to have installed the whole program for the scanner..I mean the driver and the software to manage it ..This can be downloaded from canon support site in case you do not have it on a disk ...or in the computer ..http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_8600f#DriversAndSoftware
here is the link where you can download the canoscan toolbox..which is teh software I was talking about ..So , the procedure is to initiate the scanning from the toolbox in the computer ..and during the wizard ..select the preferences to scan document ..and not photo ..This will probably give you the possibility to select the program to be scanned into ..or will scan in word by default..remember to select the option to scan document ..and not picture..otherwise will scan as a photo and will end up with a jpeg of gif file ..Please do not hesitate to ask more questions in a comment if you have something you did not understood..and please rate my answer cause it affects my work here ..
How can you clean the glass on a Canon 8600F
Got this from Canon.com:
The foggy haze on the glass is actually an anti-glare treatment that has been intentionally applied to the underside of the scanner glass. This treatment lessens the glare from the lamp under the glass and provides better image quality. This haze may not appear uniform because of the shape of the scanner base and the components under the glass. However, the anti-glare treatment has been uniformly applied and the haze is as expected.
Re: Canon 8600f scanner. How do I get this to file

Scans are taking a long
1) Your scanning image resolution may be too higher set 300 dpi / 400 dpi / 600 dpi. Scanning now fast.... not ok look step 2
2) Re-Install Scanner driver / down load new driver. not ok look step 3
2) Replace USB cable.
