You can scan to PDF but you will need the full version of Acrobat or a program such as Paperport or Ecopy that can save scans in PDF format.

What is meant by PDF in used in scanning?


If you are asking about the "SCAN TO PDF" button, it allows the scanner to create a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. PDF files are files that can be viewed with the free Adobe Reader software. The PDF format files are easy to store on your computer and easy to share. PDF files can have many pages. Image files, like JPG, can only hold one page per file.

If you use PDF files, make sure you only get the reader software from Adobe.com.

New all in one printer/scanner. when I scan I get:- Adobe reader could not open 'scan_Doc0001.pdf'


Might need a bit more information about this: But I'm presuming you scan your document and save it as a pdf document using the built in HP software?
Couple of things to try:
1 - have you got the latest version of Adobe Reader? It may be that you are using an older version - the pdf document specification has been updated over the years and it may be that you're saving the pdf using a newer version of the pdf format than adobe reader is able to read.
2 - Adobe reader isn't the only pdf viewer, there are numerous other pdf document viewers (some free some not) You could try another pdf viewer, like Foxit Reader (free to use) and see if that can open it?
3 - When you save the scan, make sure that in the Save Dialog box it is really saving it as pdf. Common mistake is that people often just save a file with .pdf and expect the program to know that you want to save as pdf. When you scan there are several other file formats that you can use (Tiff, Jpeg etc) Is is possible you're saving the file as Tiff or Jpeg but with a .pdf file extension? If you're not sure, re-scan the document and resave it, but don't use a file extension, let the scanning program do that, see what it saves it as?
4 - check where you're saving the pdf on your computer? Is the place you're trying to open it from, the same as the place you've saved it?

Hi

Go to brother scanner icon and right click mouse. Choose on the scanning properties and change the file from JPEG to pdf.

I am not 100% certain but I am not sure you can use that old a Adobe version with Win 7. The current Adobe Pro for creating .pdf files is now version 9 for Win 7. That may be part of your problem. Consult the Adobe website and see if that older version will even run in Win 7

How do I add multiple pages to one scanned doucment?


Open your Adobe Acrobat (e.g., 9.0 Pro), load your pages into the document feeder (fewer than 30 at a time), then ask Adobe Acrobat to create PDF from scanner (File/Create PDF/From Scanner). Canon MP530 as the scanner and click OK. Works like a charm!

System settings on Sharp AR-M205


Found a very good solution...Use Adobe Acrobat to do the scanning. Launch Adobe Acrobat and select the AR-M205 as your scanner and proced from there. Adobe will pull up the Sharpe software to do the actual scanning but Adobe will be in charge and create a pdf file. I am using Adobe 6.0 which is not one of the free versions, I think.

Pdf automatically opens, then system just hangs


I think the problem lies in your Comp or the Adobe reader. Reinstall Adobe reader, try a later version. Also run scandisk to check if the OS is okay.
