Canon DR M-260 Scanning Bug with Match Original Size

The Canon DR M-260 scanner drivers have a bug in them that will mis-interpret the size of a scanned document and erroneously set the size to it's maximum possible. If you are scanning with the M-260 and you receive the error "the dimensions of ... do not match the expected size" this Canon bug is very likely the culprit.

Shooter's Tech is working with and encouraging Canon to fix this bug. Until then, there is an easy work around.

Briefly, the workaround involves changing the "Page Size" setting from "Match original size" to the actual size of the targets you are scanning.

Step by Step: Setting Page Size to Your Target's Dimensions

In Orion select 'Match' then 'Score' and then 'Scan Targets using Scanner Drivers.' This will bring up the driver settings menu for your Canon scanner.

In the drop-down labeled ‘Page Size’, change ‘Match Original Size’ to Letter/8.5x11.

With the target loaded into the scanner select the button labeled ‘Scan’ in the bottom middle window.

Once completed this will have your scanner default to Letter\8.5x11 for all scanning. Unless you use a different target size (the BMC target, for example) you do not need to change this setting.
