Free download for the Canon scanner imageFORMULA DR-2580C
You need to install this version of capture perfect software first before you can update.
Canon website only has the update ( version 3.1.45) It is impossible to obtain version 3.0, Canon does not give it.
Without the original version 3.0 the scanner is useless.
CapturePerfect is the bundled software that comes with canon scanners that canon scanners will simply not work without.
You can download the drivers from their website just fine, but they don’t supply the software for the scanner online for a free download.
And without the software, you might as well use that scanner as a paperweight.
You heard me. Canon, those pricks, give you one half of the equation to make your canon scanners work.
They’ll offer upgrades to the software, but you have to have the software first before you can upgrade it.
But we have found a place with the software for the Canon scanner(s) DR-2580C and others.

If you don't like the Canon capture perfect software for whatever reason you can also download NAPS2 (not another PDf scanner).
It works good with the Canon DR 2580c scanner. But the saving of PDF's is very slow. The canon software is very much faster.
