    I was using my Canon MP490 with my old iMac with no problems. I just recently bought a brand new iMac and now my printer will not scan. Every time I try to scan, I get the following error message below. Notice how the MP490 is in the list of supported printers. I downloaded a driver update for the printer through Apple's software update and also downloaded and installed all of the new software that I could find on Canons website.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks
    Matt

    You don't need just any ole Canon software. You need to download and install Canon software for the Canon MP490.
