As I already told you, I had to buy the turboprint driver to make it work correctly.

But if copying fails, you have a hardware problem : the computer has nothing to do with copying.

Blame Canon for not providing drivers or allowing developpers to write one

Following the same link I gave you in my first answer, ie http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=Canon-PIXMA_MP510 will tell you how to make the scanner work.
