    I suspect that you mean that you are trying to scan a text document and send it to Adobe 8 to have that program create a .PDF file. This would require essentially OCR capability. Does Adobe 8 have this built-in? If not, you will have to create a text file using other OCR software, and then have Adobe 8 create the .PDF file from the text file. Without OCR capability, Adobe 8 cannot take what is essentially a picture, and create a .PDF file.

Scanning with epson dx4450 (using Windows 8) seems to generate "damageded files"


Adobe reader cannot open .jpg files. Adobe reader is designed to read files with a .pdf file extension. PDF is a quasi-universal format that's common across multiple operating systems. If your scanner will allow you to save files in .pdf format, Adobe reader should be able to open them. Otherwise, you'll have to use a picture file viewer/editor. Most versions of Windows have a picture viewer built in.

Epson gts50 wont stop scanning until paper jam occurs


I just started having the same issue. However, I don't think the problems was understood. You can one sheet of paper; that's all you need to scan. The scanner will not stop until it has cycled through 8 scans and which point it will then prompt that a e1: Paper Jam has occured. You can hit ok and still safe the document, but it is annoying have to go through the cycles or hit cancel to stop the cycling (at which point you can then still save the scan). I believe Alan and I are both looking for a solution to resolve the issue.

Mine started after a serious paper jam. I am in a rather unique situation as I have to requested elevated priveledges to down load/update any drivers. So personnally I am trying to find a way to work around the issue.

Thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure you have Adobe acrobat or similar installed so that you have PDF available on the PC. It may also be in the software for the Epson. I had a scanner a few years ago whose software excluded PDF and I ended up installing new software of a generic printer / scanner to use Adobe PDF

There are 2 steps you can do to get this option back.

First, You need to update Adobe Flash player Or you need to uninstall and Reinstall the Adobe Flash player.

Since you uninstalled the Software and and reinstalled, the Software is not able to detect the latest Adobe software in your PC.

May i know what is the operating system ?

Try this step below to update to adobe flash player if you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista
Click on START button
Click on MY Computer or Computer
Open C:/ local Disk
Open Windows Folder
Open System32 Folder
Open Macromed Folder
Open Flash Folder
You will find few flash files
Double click on file Flashutil10 and it should give you update screen. Continue and complete the process.
Restart your PC and try to Scan

If this does not work, you need to uninstall adobe flash player and reinstall it and it will work.

Regards,
Ron

Need installation cd for epsom GT5500 can anybody help , inherited the scanner . can use XP pro, it would appear scanner to old for Vista. John


There are no drivers for this scanner (to use with Vista). This scanner is outdated and Epson has discontinued their support for this scanner.
New technologies emerge with time and this causes old ones to become obsolete. There are new scanners available with much better resolution and scanning speed.
I understand that this scanner has, and maybe still, doing your job but please try to understand that only the original equipment manufacturer can provide the drivers; if they can't probably no one else can.
However, drivers for Win XP are available for free download. Please click here to visit the download website.
Vista has a large database of generic drivers. Maybe it will pick this scanner up and install so you are still be able to do basic scanning.

Epson 3490 Scanner not communicating properly with PC
