If you want to use the original software, Lexmark does not distribute replacement install disk for all models.

Contact Lexmark here, to see if the disk for your printer is available.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet,
Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .

Alternatively you can use free OCR software, check links below, try a couple of programs, and keep the best free one:

I have a Lexmark 8300 most funtions work well from time to time scanning is an issue however OCR funtion WILL NOT WORK. I have the Instal CD, it seams to instal but can not use the function. I am running...


You must have a WORD TYPE program to save the scan too. I had this same problem until I installed Microsoft Office 2003 as well. It has been awhile but that is the case and mine now works perfect. You can get a free download of it for trial use. Or even an open source word program will work. If it ask you where to save the scan choose word or office if you already have them. the reason is you must use an editable program to edit the document.
Don't be surprised if the document you see isn't 100% as the document you scan because this is normal. You must be 100% that your scanned document matches - it is up to you to edit it for mistakes as they are not perfect. Some are in fact way better than others. The program with Lexmark is usually good. c88085b.jpg
