I use Image Capture to connect to my Canon Pixma MP450 printer/scanner via USB. Never any problem whatsoever until the update to Mavericks.
Printing will still work ( ! ) but Image Capture will tell me there is no scanner connected.
reinstall/reboot/pull out usb... doesn't work. Can't find any drivers on the Canon site.
any help please?
The last scanner driver that Canon released was for 10.7. You may be able to install and use this driver on 10.9, but to install it you will have to get past Gatekeeper because the driver is not signed. To do so, Control-click on the Installer and select Open from the pop-up menu that appears. You will now be given the option to install the driver.
Here is a link to the scanner driver.
With the driver installed you will need a scanning application. Image Capture requires an ICA driver and as Canon has not released one for this model for 10.9, you will not be able to use this application. So you could see if Canon's MP Navigator application will install and operate. Like the scanner driver, it was last updated for 10.7 so you will have to use the same procedure to install it on 10.9.
