I went into Options and selected the Item tab.
I selected Custom kept the box clear and pressed Ok.
I then scanned a document and the date shown was correct.
I went into Options again and selected Predefined. And the programme runs correctly.

Hi I wish to scan several pages into the PC into one file, and then upload them to another folder in the one action. Presently I can only upload one page at a time. I am unable to select all the pages...


Well, yes and no. I use a product called Paperport. I fought with Command Central too long. I originally got Paperport with a scanner. It has a Scan tab that you set a profile to scan documents in any format and dot size (as in B&W, Greyscale, Color and 200x200, 600x600 etc.). The documents are put into a file and you can merge or unmerge the resulting files (ie pdf works for me). The software lists for $100, but it shows up for half price at a lot of places. Ebay and Tiger Direct also gets in on the action. Here's the link to Nuance and it's Paperport 12.

How does one lower the scan resolution on the Dell 2135cn? Currently, a document of twenty - or so - pages, saves to a pdf file of ten-plus megabytes. Far too large to attach to email.


You need to adjust the resolution in the software. Are you using the Dell software and PaperPort or another application?

This will be easiest to do when you launch the scan from the computer. If you have the TWAIN driver loaded, load the document to scan in the ADF and open Paperport. Click FileScan and the available scanners list should open. Choose your scanner (otherwise click the Select button on the left side of the window). Then click OK. Click on the Scanner Display dialog box on the left of the window. Click on Preview. Then adjust the resolution by clicking on the Image Quality tab.

If the document contains is only a series of picture or you have the WIA driver loaded, then use Paint or PhotoGallery (Vista includes the program, but it is available for XP or Windows 7). Then choose File > Import from Camera or Scanner > From Scanner. Open the Advanced Properties dialog box by clicking on Adjust the Quality of the Scanned picture.

I hope this helps.

(The default resolution is used when you launch a scan from the unit itself. It is possible to adjust it once the software loads but you must use the scan to file option, instead of scan to e-mail. Then attach the resultant file to your e-mail.)

How to use a scanner?


What OS do you have? If you have a Windows XP or 2000, download and install the full-featured software and use the HP software to scan.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=306895&

If you have Vista and Win 7, HP doesn't have a full-software driver package. You will be using the drivers built into the OS.

For Vista, you can scan using the Windows Photo Gallery (File, Import from Scanner) or Paint (File, From Scanner or Camera) and with some versions Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan, File, Scan).

If you have Windows 7, Paint and Windows Fax and Scan will let you access the images/documents on the scanner.

In all cases, a good cable and ports will make scanning much less frustrating.

I hope this helps.

(alternatively, you could get third party software for Vista or 7. PaperPort is one example)

How does the 1210 scanner work with Windows 7? I have downloaded the driver for the printer and it works ok, but I cannot use the software for the printer. The copier and the scanner work, but i cannot...


You will have to do a two step process to send a scanned document or image by email; the scan to e-mail button won't work. Scan using either Windows Fax and Scan or Paint. Save your file. Then start (Compose/Write) an e-mail to the person you need to send the document. Click Attach and browse to the location where the scan was saved. The default folder is C:/Users/<user_name>/My Documents/Scanned Documents . Click OK after selecting that image. Finish writing your e-mail and send it.

If you'd like to automatically open the e-mail program, browse to the folder where you saved the fax from Computer (Start button) and right click on the image. Choose Send to Mail Recipient. The new mail compose window should open.

I hope this helps.

(a program like PaperPort may let you send to e-mail recipient without the extra step; however I'm not sure of the details.)

OCR problems for Brother MFC-8660DN with Vista 64bit


You are correct in that paperport 9 will not work on Vista and paperport 11 is the alternative. I called about a similar model and the guy at Brother told me that paperport 11 is included on an updated cd from brothermall.com for some models. It was only about $3 so you might want to check for your model. Hope this helps.

I can't scan


When scanning documents on my MFC 7420, this is what I do. Place document on th scanner bed and don't press any buttons, leave it whatever mode it is in. Go to the computer and click on start> program files> scansoft paperport> open paperport se. When paperport is open click on the scan icon in the upper left corner. A dialog box on the left hand side will ask what you want to scan a picture or document. Select accordingly and press the scan icon.
A new window will pop up and ask what you want to scan and the size. You can either select pre scan or scan. The computer then will send a scan request to the scanner. When it is done scanning close the second window that popped up and the document that you just scanned will be there with a red box around it. Click on the document and it will open, then you can edit and save as needed.
Happy scanning
