You have to set up on the machine to scan to SMB. you then creat a folder in your c drive to recieve the scaned documents the folder needs to be a shared folder and you have the option to recieve it im PDF format.     let me know if that helps you out.

New all in one printer/scanner. when I scan I get:- Adobe reader could not open 'scan_Doc0001.pdf'


Might need a bit more information about this: But I'm presuming you scan your document and save it as a pdf document using the built in HP software?
Couple of things to try:
1 - have you got the latest version of Adobe Reader? It may be that you are using an older version - the pdf document specification has been updated over the years and it may be that you're saving the pdf using a newer version of the pdf format than adobe reader is able to read.
2 - Adobe reader isn't the only pdf viewer, there are numerous other pdf document viewers (some free some not) You could try another pdf viewer, like Foxit Reader (free to use) and see if that can open it?
3 - When you save the scan, make sure that in the Save Dialog box it is really saving it as pdf. Common mistake is that people often just save a file with .pdf and expect the program to know that you want to save as pdf. When you scan there are several other file formats that you can use (Tiff, Jpeg etc) Is is possible you're saving the file as Tiff or Jpeg but with a .pdf file extension? If you're not sure, re-scan the document and resave it, but don't use a file extension, let the scanning program do that, see what it saves it as?
4 - check where you're saving the pdf on your computer? Is the place you're trying to open it from, the same as the place you've saved it?

I am unable to scan documents to pdf format. I used to be able to do with my old comuter with windows XP. Now I have a new computer with Windows 7. All I get is a photo format, but no Word, or pdf formats.

Can't edit a scanned document


What format did you save the document in? Different scanners use different default formats.
Open the document and try "save as" a .pdf file,then you have a chance of editing it with any of the freeware pdf editors you can google and download.
It's also possible to import it to Office Word and edit it there,if you have the pdf plug-in for Word.

Can I scan a document to PDF?


any scanner, indeed any document, picture format can be saved as pdf. i would suggest first scanning the document as text (for example to words, or openoffice or indeed whatever you use as your document management program) and then port it (sort of print operation) to any free available "translator" program which allow you to save file as pdf. alternatively you can scan your document as jpeg and then save it as pdf, but this tend to produce very messy outlook and results are usually horrible.

My HP F4210 can´t create PDF format from scanned documents. I run VISTA. Stefan


It's not the scanner that creates the PDF, you need scanning software capable of saving scanned image as PDF. loaded on your computer. The software determines where to send and how to save a scanned document.
