I am trying to scan information into my computer (to go paperless). When I scan in something, I can hardly read it. If I make a copy of it first, and then scan it in, then I can read it. Is there something wrong with my scanner? Do I need to clean it? If so, how do I do that? I don't want to have to make copies of everything before I scan them (defeats the paperless purpose)
What you need to do is get some cleaning solvent from a Computer Store and clean the class. If this does not correct the problem then try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers. It sounds like your screen may just be dirty. If you can print it and then scan it that is very perculiar. Try this and let us know if that fixes the problem.

Your WD HDD have been attacted by viruses for your computer or outside computer where you used it last. Make sure that you have an up to date antivirus software, scan your computer or the external hard drive, explore your computer, go to tools - folder options under view files & folders select show hidden files and folders apply and ok it.
Try out the hard drive on another computer, to verify if it's a hard drive issue or a computer issue. Then, get another hard drive, or USB stick, and try reading/erasing/recording on it from your MAC, to see if the computer is handling external data storage devices properly. I'm not a MAC guy so I can't help out if it's your computer that's misbehaving... but if it's the hard drive that's misbehaving, then you may want to run a partition repair scan and also run a surface-level scan to make sure everything's ok. If you have a PC near by, get the WD Diagnostic utility here http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Hard-Disk-Utils/Western-Digital-Data-Lifeguard-Diagnostics.shtml and run an extended disk test. This will find and repair any logical problems with the hard drive. After the test is over, run a SMART scan too, that will tell you the physical state of the hard drive. If it points to some parameters that are off the recomended values you may want to get all the data off the drive. I'm sorry to say, but the 500GB-1TB Western Digital hard drives, especially the Green Line series, proved to be a very silky line, fragile, unreliable. If you opt for a new hard drive, I suggest that you keep the WD casing, and stick a Samsung or a Seagate hard drive.

Did you mean hard disk? If so, make sure you buy the right hard disk, there are something different between IDE and EIDE hard disk although their interface look similiar. Go to BIOS to auto detect the HDD if available. The jumper settings on the hard disk can not both set to be master if they are on the same ribbon of IDE interface. If BIOS recognize the hard disk and not reading, there might be something wrong with the disk. Try it on another computer or do some scan on it. It is an option to call Dell and ask them whether they have some hard code of their machine so the machine only read disk with some hidden information too just in case. If the disk is not a hard disk, then there could be standards issue of media too. You can check the specification of your machine and see the detailed version of the interface and see whether you have the same version of standards on your disk.
First of all you have to have the full version of Adobe to do this and it will show up as a printer on your control panel.
I also use a program called PaperPort, it works like a champ for paperless archiving and printing. This program alows you to scan and then print to PDF if you have adobe installed.

With adobe profesional you can make a PDF form, and send to the recipients. They can fill the form with Adobe reader and send it to you back, but only the data will be sent to you, not all with the pdf. You can collect the data with your adobe profesional. Your programmer of medical paperless system can make the program to put that data in your database. Here is the simple procedure: 1. Create form: Open adobe prof, menu advance --> Form --> create new form. You will go to Adobe design to create the form, there you can also retrieve your scanned document. Don't forget to put "submit button" and your email address. 2. Then save as pdf form. It is ready to be send to your recipients. 3. The recipients will fill the data and send to you by pushing the "submit button". 4. You will receive the data in your mailbox, as an attachment of email. You can use adobe prof to collect it, example to put it in Microsoft Excel. Go to menu advance --> form --> Create Spreadsheet from data files. A dialog box will come out, put in the files you received from your recipients. then go on, you will have the Excel data. For put it in your database of your system, your programmer should create a program/ included in your system's program.

To scan a document for editing purposes, you will need OCR software. What OCR stands for is optical character recognition. This software interprets the document on the flatbed for editing purposes. Reputable OCR software on the market are:
Omni Page Pro ABBYY FineReader Pro Presto! OCR 4.0
what method are you using to scan? SMB, FTP, TWAIN, or scan to HDD and retrieve from computer. Trying to gather informations sounds like it is trying to access something like an LDAP or remote settings/server.
Ok, your situation is very vague. How do you know it's a program? Have you run scan disk? What kind of computer is it? Is the hard drive the drive with windows installed on it? If you think it is related to something on the disk then you might consider backing up your vital information and formatting the hard drive and starting fresh. I can help you get detailed guides for that. Also it might help for me to see a list of process running on your computer. I know how horrible it can be when something is bogging down your computer I hope this gets resolved soon.
