Scanning problems with Mountain Lion
I am about to upgrade from my 2009 iMac with Snow Leopard to a new iMac with OSX 10.8 ML. I use my Canon 2525 to scan to my iMac regularly and it works great. However I understand from my Canon tech support rep that i can not scan directly to an iMac with ML due to security protocols in the OS. There is apparently a work-around by changing security settings, but don't know if I'm comfortable with that.
Any advice on how to use my Canon scanner with OSX 10.8 ML? Are there step by step instructions if I need to change security settings? Thanks.

Sounds bogus, like a problem with Canon's software that they're not prepared to fix.
I'd want to know what the "changes" are to security settings that makes the software work. And I would ask them when are they going to make a new version of their software.
You could see if there are third-party drivers that would work.
Apple provides drivers directly for some models of printers: it doesn't look as if yours is listed. I use Apple's Image Capture my with EPSON scanner and it works effortlessly. It's possible that a driver for a different Canon printer, that is supported by Apple on 10.8 will work with your printer, perhaps with a bit of fiddling.
