I looked at whatsopuny said and went from there. I used windows search utility to look the file he suggested, didnt find it, and then did a search for *.ds. I found a file named per1670.ds in th epson folder -- which I figured was the same thing. I copied that and then saw a file located in the TWAIN_32 folder. I clicked on that, then on the toolbar clicked on file, then "open containing folder." When I got there, I went up one level to get to the TWAIN_32 folder and pasted in the per1670.ds file that I had copied. I didnt know if that would do it, but I restarted my computer, and it worked.

Had same problem with mac os 10.4 solution was downloading the latest epson driver from epson it still didn't work. turned out that the "epson perfection 1670.ds " old file was in the trash and the scanner was still using it. I turned off the scanner, rebooted the mac and "empty trash". Turned scanner back on and it worked. If you still have the problem make sure that you only have on "epson perfection 1670.ds" file in your HD,library,image capture,twain data sources.

How do i scan a doocument, and send as e-mail

You need to have scanning software installed on your computer. It usually comes with the scanner or combined scanner/printer when you buy it.
If you do not have it on your computer, look for the cdrom or dvd that came with the scanner.

In most scanning software you have an option to safe the scanned pages as a pdf document.
pdf documents can easily be sent by email.

When I press the scan button, it gives error message about documentation

you should look through the documentation that came with your scanner. The error message is probably telling you to read the documentation for troubleshooting why the scanner isn't working. Most documentation that comes with devices like that has a troubleshooint section that describes common problems.

HP ScanJet 5590 automatic feeder not working

Have you tried scanning in the flat bed mode? Does it scan okay? If the image is good, then there is no problem with scan module. Check your page settings. If the page size selected for scanning is smaller than actual size, there can be some peoblems. Try and scan with max size. Check if the sensors are dust/paper free. A small piece of paper (The small round discarded piece from Computer stationery) in the paper sensor can create trouble.
