Hello Canon Community,
I have a PIXMA MG8220 printer scanner. The computers I have our a I-Mac and MacBook Air. I can get the cannon to print from both of my personal devices however I can not get either device to receive a scan when I try to scan a document from my PIXMA MG8220. I get a message that says "Set the PC to start Scanning"? I have tired to download the software downloads available on the Cannon website and it still will not work for me. Could someone please provide me some support on this? I'm just not sure what I'm doing wrong or not doing. Thank You So Much.
