Hi,
I would uninstall the dodgy mydvd program, and use Spybot to clean up the malware it has spread on your system.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Brother MFC240c) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

Why have my Picasa files disappeared? I imported 460 pics last night and can't find them or any of the other files. Picasa keeps compressing files.


Picasa saves all the files to the hard drive. You can have many locations for pictures. It is possible the pictures are stored in a directory that is not being scanned continuously by Picasa. Since the files are on the hard drive, even the Picasa data for edits to the pictures are saved to the hard drive. So you could un-install the program and not lose the picture. You might lose the setup for what directories the program looks at. You can see the folders it uses to make the on screen thumbnails. Go to TOOLS -> FOLDER MANAGER. This is where you define the folders for Picasa.

If you imported the pictures from a camera using the import tool, the directory you specified is where the pictures are now. You also had the option to delete imported pictures, or not. If you try to IMPORT again from the main screen, look to the bottom left for the IMPORT TO: drop down and see where it is defaulting. Make sure that directory is being scanned in the folder manager.

Post again if this didn't help and add more information. As to where you were importing from and to. If the pictures still exist on the source, etc.

Hello, I am attempting to scan an important document and the printer keeps saying "set the document on the platen glass" the document is there but it keeps saying the message


The best way to scan images to save on yourcomputer is to use the scanner software on the computer. Not the scan functionon the scanner.
You don't say what type of scanner software you have but usually scannersoftware works this way:
1) Place photo on scanner
2) Open scanner software
3) Using the software, Initiate scan
4) Name the Scanned item and save it to your desired location/folder
Note: some applications will automatically save to --My Documents--My Pictures
5) Repeat process for each pic to be scanned

When you scan a picture with hp officejet 6500 wireless, how do you get the picture to your computer? I see that the printer is scanning the picture, but I don't know how to get it to my computer.


To get it to your PC you must use a program to scan the picture. You can use Word to scan the picture by going to File and the Import. Import from Scanner.

I have a Dell All-In-One PictBridge Photo 924. I


Open Dell All-in-one center, keep the picture on the Scanner bed and click on scan and choose a location to save the picture once the scan is completed and the preview is visible. Alternatively, a simpler way to do this is to Open MSPaint, click on File and click on Import from Camera or Scanner. Choose the kind of picture you want to scan and confirm scan. Try experimenting with options to experience scanning effects and image quality.

Good Luck!

Scanner keeps saying USB not connected


Use the scan commands from the HP device manager, not the printer.

Printer won't scan a picture


I had the same problem, but I was able to scan my first photo today. If you are using Windows Vista and have Windows Photo Gallery on your system, you should be able to scan your photo/documents. Open Windows Photo Gallery 1. Click File, and then click Import from Camera or Scanner.
2. In the Import Pictures and Videos window, click the scanner that you want to use, and then click Import.


The rest should be self explanatory. Good luck!
