How do I scan a document from my Canon MG5250 to my new IMAc?

    If you haven't installed any Canon software, open System Preferences> Print & Scan

     

    Your printer should be listed and there should be two tabs across from it Print and Scan. Select the Scan tab and you should then have your scanning options shown.

    ...or you could try Image Capture located in your Applications folder.

    I've done this (I'm still on Lion OS), but when I open the scanner to initiate the scan, I get the attached - the loading icon just contually shows, it doesn't complete and it doesn't time out.

     

    What can I do - please help??

     

    Many thanks,

    KLM

    Hi I have a similar problem - I can print and scan from my IMAC - but can't scan to it from the Printer...I am wireless, and the scanner only lists the PC linked by USB as an option.

    Any ideas how I can make the printer see the IMAC in its little screen?

     

    Thanks, (i am new to IMACs...just set it up yesterday)
