Xerox workcentre m20i scan to hard drive?

Is it possible to have the m20i scan the file directly to the hard drive of the computer it is hooked up to, or do you have to use the e-mail as output?

To store the scanned files straight to the hard disk you need to change settings on your scanner software.

Open the scanner software utility, and find oftions or settings, in there you should find destination folder settings, and chose to store files to hard drive instead of sending them by email.

I can be more specific if you tell me what scanning software you are using.

Give us feedback on your problem.

Thanks.

You can use the SCAN feature to save scanned documents to your PC.

CLICK HERE for videos on HOW TO

CLICK HERE for your user Guide

Your Scan to PC is by USB cable. As specified HERE

Use ScanCentre 5.0 software that was included with the printer to use the unit as a scanner and transfer the file to your PC.

Yes you can do this when you scan the file should either open a save dialogue box or it will open the document automatically. In the save dialogue box you can switch where it will be saved by clicking either the save to or browse option. If the document automatically opens click the file menu and click save as and then go to the location you would like to save the file too.

Hi there
There should be an option in the Xerox software to scan directly to the computer, this should be easy to find if you explore the software.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding, email is only one of the outputs of the scanner. One is as you would want, save as a jpeg file. The scanning program would have to be instructed to saved the scanned image to a specific folder which normally would be in "My Documents / My Pictures" if you are suing Windows or in some instances a pre-designated folder for scanned images.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Installed software but then lost all contents


If you mean that you installed your OS and erased all your files, then they may be gone for good. Recuva is a great program for restoring lost files, may be worth trying (it's free). But use your computer as little as possible before attempting this, any hard disk activity may be overwriting data you want to restore. The safest way to use this program is to install it on another computer, hook up the hard drive from the affected machine and scan it for recoverable files.

I get an SMTP error when i try to emali from my Xerox Workcentre M20i. What can i do to scan or e-mail without being directly connected to the printer via parallel port or USB?


That is not true i work as a IT Spec for the Kentucky Army National Guard and we have over 20 M20I series printers in which we have set up to scan to email. None of these printers are hooked up directly to the computer and they all have the ablity to scan to email. if you printer dose not seem to have the ability they you will probally just need to update the os. Here are the steps to get it set up.

  1. Connect the printer to the network
  2. Print a network config sheet
  3. use IE to connet to the web based interface useing the printers IP
  4. Click on the properties tab
  5. hit the little plus sign by connectivity
  6. do the same with protocols
  7. find and click on smtp server
  8. add ip address in the ip address and if your server requires athenticating type in the user name and password
  9. if for some reason the maxium message size has undefined then you will need to complete reset the printer or you will get an error it needs to have options that can be selected.
  10. now go to services
  11. then email settings
  12. select apropriate modes and the default from address
  13. if you want to set permissions to the device you can do so under user authintcation
  14. you can also set up the LAB and GAB
Note:
some web sites may not allow you to suer this function one alternitive is to set up a local smtp server on your network and create a mail box for yourself then you will just need to put your smtp server address in the instructions listed in step 8. I hope this helps.

Xerox M20i scan to e-mail


You can not scan with a M20i with an Ethernet cat 5 cable. It can ONLY be done via a USB or parallel cable.

If you don't believe me, which many on here wont accept the truth, here is the note from the Xerox documentation..

The WorkCentre can scan a document via Direct Scanning using a USB or Parallel Port connection only.

I am not computer literate and need help. can you explain to me step by step how to scan and e-mail documents. my e-mail address: jwaples60450@hotmail.com please. Thank you


First turn on the computer, after it loads up plug the scanner into the computer, turn it on, and it should prompt you to install a driver for the scanner. Follow the directions on screen and it will install it for you. After that, it might require a reboot of the system, if so do so. If not make sure the scanner is powered on and then put the document in the scanner and run the program that was installed for the scanner and it should scan for you, or if the scanner has a button that says scan and it should put it in a file on your computer, possibly in the MY DOCUMENTS folder. Open your email and compose new mail and then when your ready to put the file in, click the ATTACHMENTS button and find the file and click attach, and then send. There you just scanned and sent your first file VIA email. Congratulations. Any further questions please let me know.
