Place it face down on the glass, in the upper left hand corner where there are indications for placing the picture or document. Close the cover and hit the copy button. If the message still comes up contact Canon for answers.

Not without the pc connection it can't. It runs off of software. Search for a Stand Alone Copier at Walmart.

I've used it that way, actually was the very first thing I did with it. Every all-in-one printer I've ever owned would operate as a copier without a computer. All the copier controls are right on the printer.

Check with Canon on this and make sure they still support this printer with updates. And that it supports your operating system upgrades and changes. Check the compatibility issues carefully. Canon has a $25.00 replacement upgrade policy if it should stop working or they stop supporting it with upgrades. They replaced mine for $25.00 with an upgraded one that I later gave away. I'm replacing it with a newer Canon shortly from Walmart again.

Yes it will, and at worst ya might have to download a compatability patch. Hook it up and let W7 ask for the driver disk. W7 made it a breeze!
