Re: Scanned items are mapped to one pc only
There is no easy simple answer to this question You can do e-filing, which holds all files in the MFP on the hard drive; from there you can link it to a PC as a shared folder.
You can set up scanning to a folder on a PC / Server hard drive, which is a link to a folder, which can be a challenge if you are unfamiliar with sharing folders, securities etc..
You could also share the folder which all the scans are currently going to on the one PC. For any of this you will have to access the Nic/Web page of the machine which is the IP address of the machine. To make changes you will need administrator access of some sort! If you do not want to pay a tech to do this for you, then I would recommend you review the training videos from Toshiba.
If you have the Administrators Guide Manual read that as well,
There are too many variables involved for a simple easy solution to this. It is not a difficult thing to do just too many steps to explain here.
If you decided to pay a tech, find an Authorized Toshiba Dealer to do your set up, Not the IT guy, as they usually end by calling us, in the end you get more grief and pay even more money. ( I have encountered to many IT people who have no clue how to do this)
From reading your question I would say your simplest solution would be Scan to E-Mail. Which you will need SMTP, DNS, etc information... This is Toshiba website, choose the appropriate model, this is the interactive training, once there choose scan to email, etc..

Go to Start, Programs (Windows XP: All Programs), Lexmark , Lexmark All-In-One-Center.
Place your first scan on the scanner glass. Press Preview Now to see what the scan will look like.
Under Scan... Send scanned images to, select Microsoft Word (or the relevant software).
Click See More Scan Settings.
Next, click on Display Advanced Scan Settings.
Under the Scan tab, look for an option towards the bottom that reads Scan multiple items before output,and select it.
Click Scan Now.
After each scan, you will be asked if you would like to scan another document. You can select either Yes or No.
Click on Yes to continue after each scan until you have scanned in all of your pages.
When you have scanned all your pages, click on No. One of two things will then happen:
A screen will appear which will allow you to save all your pages in a single file to a destination of your choosing.
The software package you have chosen to scan your item to will open with the scanned image displayed.
The scanned items should be stored somewhere on your computer as an image file(JPG, TIF, BMP, or PDF). Typically, when you scan a document you decide where to save the document. Simply browse to where the scanned documents are, right-click on one of the files then click Delete. This should delete the scanned document.
you will need to have the folder shared on the desktop. you will need user name and password. go to user tools. system settings. administrator. address book. create new user. in new user program, go to folder. enter computer name. browse network. you then enter user name and password for pc. should be done
Hi, after the item/s are scanned you should be taken through a series of prompts, one being to save the scanned item/s. Can't tell by your description at what point you are having trouble. So I may be covering some areas you may already be familiar with. After you have saved item/s to a location where you can access it, depending on how the item was saved, such as in the Windows and Fax Viewer or similar. If you are using Microsoft Windows that is. Place cursor over the saved file, right click and place cursor over "Send To" where a drop down menu will have some options, select "Mail Recipient" and it should open up your preferred email program with the item/s attached ready for you to enter the email address where you want to send it to. If not then open your email program that you wish to use and select the option to write send or compose mail depending on which program you use, select "add attachment" then select "Browse" and when you locate the item right click it and click "Select" which should place the item/s into an attachment.

Open a new email either on your PC email client, (ie, Outlook or thunderbird,...) or the web based email client you use (ie. Gmail, hotmail, etc.).
Attach the scan to the email (they ALL have a means of attaching items to them.)
If you are looking to attach the text directly into an email, not as an attachment, you will need to install your HP software to do Optical Character recognition that came with your printer or from HP.Com, then scan then convert the scanned file. the only problem is you will need to correct the OCR errors, and there can be many.
In order to scan, the computer HAS to be ON. The purpose of scanning is making a DIGITAL copy of what ever you have on hardcopy. Which means, you should have saved it on the computer. And if the SCANNER is off, you can still access the scanned picture or item. However, the computer CANNOT be off, as that is where the picture should have been stored.
Any other questions?
PS to find the picture you have saved, go into the search for files and folders for a PC, and type in the name you saved it under. If you don't remember the name, look under the folder where the scanned copy is. I would look under your printer icon and its folder. Good luck!
You need to install the Epson Scanner Driver on your computer. The best way to do this is to install the sotware using the easy install facility. When the software installation has completed you will dind an Epson scan icon on your desktop. Double click this icon to run the scanner software.
The document to be scanned must be placed face down on the DX8400 glass just as making a copy, The scanning functions are all accessed from the PC.
needs to be set up on pc mate. If its in a works enviroment then there is a good chance its on a network. This means the scan function is probably not configured, or everything that gets scanned goes to a specifice computer.
Speak to your network administrator they will be able to tell you where your scans are going!
Hi - off the top of my head, without going in to check the settings at the moment, I would say to go to your PRINTERS & FAXES folder (Start/control panel/Printers & Faxes), and make sure that the printer you want things to go to is set as your DEFAULT printer.
We have the Home & Student edition as well, and it has different defaults - it took me a couple of tries to print to realize that it was trying to send things to a printer/program that really didn't even exist! When we installed MS Office HSE07, it did a lot of tweaking to our system without permission or our knowledge! Shame on MS! It added a printer that we didn't even have, and changed the default to that new odd printer!
Also, for a scanned file, you can set your computer to automatically recognize scanned files as a certain type. Did you want to do that? I hesitate to say set it to have all scanned items sent directly to the printer, since you might scan things you do not need to print!
I don't have my 1350 hooked up at the moment, or I'd jump in and find the exact settings for you (we also run XP). But, it really sounds like the installation of the MS Office has tweaked your printer default settings.
Check that first, and see if that will solve the problem... Good luck!
