MG7520 and Big Sur


I see that there is no driver for the Canon MG7520 for the Big Sur operating system. I have read that AirPrint does not necessarily require drivers. OK.


...But, what about the Scanning Functionality? I initiate a scan from the printer itself. It shows all the PCs/Macs on my network (even the Virtual Box configuration!), allowing me to press the Black/Color button and scan one or more images/PDFs which then wakes up Image Garden.


Am I out of luck now? I really like this printer/scanner.


I assume Customer (Non-)Support would tell me to buy a new printer, no?

Hi pws442,


Please click on the Apple in the upper left corner and then System Preferences.


Click on Printers & Scanners.


Click 1 time on the Canon MG7520 on the left side.  On the right side, do you see a Scan tab?  If so, click it and then click "Open Scanner".

Thank you. I will see if I can find anything like my MG7520. Mine takes 6 cartridges and I have quite a few cartridges that I would not want to lose.


Interesting that the site will not let you filter out non-available printers. In fact, it does not look like ANY of the MG series printers are available! I suppose that is why Amazon has the MG7720 for $999+shipping.


And nothing available uses the CLI-251 cartridges. Bummed.
