    I have this same issue. It will scan the image for the preview, but won't scan it so it saves to my computer. I have reinstalled the printer & done a firmware update. When I purchased the printer I had XP, but now have Vista.

    It's still not working.

  • abpositive Mar 31, 2009

    My scan problem seems to be that the Center software has never loaded on the computer. I don't remember seeing it on the XP when the printer was purchased and doesn't load for Vista Home or Ultimate. I was hopeful the support downloads would provide it. Those downloads did create the Dell Printer folder with an uninstall but no center. I need to locate another install other than the 2005 disk that came with the printer.

Try using the Dell all-in-one center instead of straight from the printer.

Start->All Programs->Dell Printers->Dell Photo AIO Printer 964->Dell all-in-one center

SOURCE: I am trying to scan photos onto the computer

How is it connected? Via usb?  Have you tried powering the printer and pc off and back on?  Try to print something, go into your print que and make sure that there are no errors.  If using usb, try another port if you have one.  Also check your ink levels.  HP AIO wont work with low ink levels.

Dell 964 scanner


First do your scan on Dell 964 scanner &printer. Scan to clipborad. You hear it scan but nothing happens on your computer. Go to control panel - scanners and cameras - scan profiles - find the document you have scanned, select it and click edit - click preview - in the left corner you will see in blue "How to scan a picture" click that, it will lead you to Windows Photo Gallery - there click on file and import from scanner of camera - it will scan there and your scanned pics will be in your picture folder :) Took me a while to figure it out :)
You can avoid all this and go directly to Windows Photo Gallery :)
