Do you have aAdobe Acrobat Professional or any program which you can use to create PDF images?
I use Acrobat Professional and pull the images from the scanner
I'm not familiar with the device Canon model but you may need to set it up for scan to folder or scan to email. If is anything like what I used to work on and set up for Ricoh devices, it's more than loading a driver.

I'm jealous, you live up there in a beautiful place.

You need to download and explore the scanning set up details in the manual which you can download from the link below

Oh yeah, if I get you all hooked up can you hook me up with some fine lady out there who needs a man in her life? Just kidding.

Well i finally got the canon mf4450 to work had remove all traces previous downloaded drivers and start over still was not easy but did not have to resort to using a baseball bat on printer to get its attention thanks for the help.
One thing that caused me some problems was i had tried to print a test page and could not but that left me with a print job in the queue and really had down where that was hidden at but finally found it and canceled all the jobs.
