I've had the mp600 for 1 year and have scanned about 3 documents in the past with no problem. Today, I have tried numerous times to scan the document and the printer/scanner is not responding. Initially, every time I pressed the scan button, my laptop would open a program called MuVee Producer and a message would appear on my laptop screen to say that " another user is using muvee producer...try again later." That drove me insane so I uninstalled that software. I turned my printer off and tried to scan again. It sounded as if it was scanning, but nothing resulted. The printer/scanner is still presenting the 'scan document ' screen. Can you help me out please. thx Lois

Lift the scanner top, then look at the narrow pane of glass. There probably is a spek of dust or ink on it. Clean it with alcohol. I've had to remove the glass, due to the speck being on the undersaide of the glass.
Also, lift the ADF cover and clan the rollers with a damp cloth.
You'll need to scan the document with an OCR software package (Optical character recognition) that will recognize the letters themselves and transmit them to word processing application, such as Word for Windows. Most scanner packages come with some form of OCR utility, so check your installed software. You may already be set up! Best of luck,William
If the document is too large for the scanner, then scan different parts of the document in two or more scans. Then open a Word document and paste the scan parts into this Word document - adjust the images to create the whole page.
Check if your Canon software creates a PDF image. A scanned image is a RASTER image, a series of dots, that 'appear' like text or drawing. You cannot use Ctrl-C or Ctrl-v. If the software creates a PDF file, you can cut & paste. Usr any good OCR (Optical Character recognition) software ad convert the raster image to editable text. Then you can cut & paste.
unfortunately the following is from MS Word 2007 Help:
The From Scanner or Camera option for scanning documents and pictures is not available in Microsoft Office Word 2007. Instead, you can use your scanner to scan the document, and then you can save the file to your computer.
After you scan the document, you can use Microsoft Office Document Imaging to create a version of the document that you can edit. Important The first step is to install Microsoft Office Document Imaging, which is not installed by default.
