This was not supported in control center 2. However, it is supported in control center 3 which you can download from the Brother website.

When our printer was attached to our windows 2000 machine, we could only scan a page at a time and then "print" the scan to a PDF printer. (We use DocuDesk). However, when we upgrade to a Vista machine and downloaded the new driver, the new control center supports PDF and multi-page.

Open up the Control Panel for the MFC on your computer. This was installed when you installed the software/driver for the printer when you first set it up. Put the page in the automatic feed, face up, head first. Click on File on the control panel and the sheets should start getting fed through. This instruction means that you are telling the scanner to scan (copy) what you have to an electronic pdf file. There should be a folder on your desktop that is called "scanned files". Once the scanning is complete, you can go to the folder and find the pdf file you just created. I have found that if I scan too many sheets at one time, the file gets too big (like 10MB!) -- keep it small.

You , nor anyone else,cannot scan and save as an ADOBY PDF file. To creat a PDF file requires either the ADOBY writting software of another software that saves  in the PDF file format.    Scanners take a picture of what ever is layed on them and copies then by breaking them into  millions of dots and then saving as a picture in a format such as JPEG.   Sorry

    With Windows XP, ControlCenter 3 is not an option. As a result, I took the time to call Brother Support and scanning multiple pages from the flat-bed glass to a single file can be done through Scansoft Paperport, a component in the Brother Suite. I'm pasting the instruction from Brother Support below:

    3. Under the scanner section click SELECT.
    4. Ensure that TWAIN has a check next to it and from the list of available scanners choose the TWAIN driver for your model brother machine. (ex: TWAIN: TW # BROTHER XXX-XXXX)

Commutative property of multiplication 3*7*2=


If there was a question it is not clear. I will show you what commutativity works. Whether that answers your lack of question remains to be seen.
Commutativity of multiplication (or the commutative property of multiplication) means that the order of the factors in a product does not affect the result. In other word, the order of factors is unimportant.
3*7+2 =7*3+2=23
2*7*3=2*3*7=7*2*3=7*3*2=3*2*7=3*7*2=42

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...


When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
