I installed the update "Canon Printer Software Update 2.7" and had luck with the printer, but the scanner function isn't supported.


Image Capture is not recognizing it as a device, and using the actual scanner menu on the machine itself doesn't work either.


Is there another software/application I can use to get my scanner to work?


I'm also unable to install the MP Navigator software from the printer/scanner's CD it came with, the window comes up saying "PowerPC applications are not supported".


Canon's website seems to only have upgrades up to 10.4, I'm hoping there's another way the scanner will still work!


Thanks in advance!!!
