Omnipage and Canon Scanner

I have Omnipage Pro 9.0. When I try to scan with my new Canon MG5460 Multifunction Device the scaaner starts but does not read the document on the patten. The Omnipage program freezes and I have to force it to close with Ctrl-Alt-Del. I have tried altering Data Execution Prevention but without success. Is there a solution to this problem? I hope you can help.

Uninstall the software and install again. Of course you must sure that you have enough space in your disk +enough RAM memory. This can cause the problem that you have. Liberate space and memory.You can uninstall some software that you are NOT using in your computer.

God bless you

SOURCE: problem with a disk read error

There are a couple of possibilities.

1. The hard drive is defective.

2. The operating system is corrupt.

The easiest way to test this is to run the restore cd that came with the computer to reload Windows.

If you get this error while running the restore cd then you will need to get a new hard drive.

I want to scan a paper and i want to save it as word so that i modify it. How can i do it?


It depends on if you have the full software installed. The MP160 documentation indicates it came wth ScanSoft OmniPage SE. Open MP Navigator and choose this program, you can output the scan as a text file. If you did a custom install, you may or may not have installed the program. If you omitted the program, do a new custom install.
OmniPage is an OCR program and will output to a number of formats (you will choose File, Save as) after scanning. Word can import RTF and most other choices as well as .doc files.

If you don't have the software disc, the software can be obtained from this URL:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=13368

Alternatively, there is a free OCR program (simpleOCR.com) that will do the same thing. However it doesn't handle text in columns (newspaper or magazines) very well.

I hope this helps.

Actually, Omnipage should be included on the CD that came with the unit. If (and I mean if) scangear installs correctly AND locates your 4370dn on the network, it will install itself as a shim TWAIN driver. After the installation of Omnipage, you will need to do a scanner setup and identify the scangear shim as the scanner you intend to work with. After that, Omnipage should work just fine using your 4370dn on the network.

Word of warning: I've had a lot of trouble with scangear if it doesn't install correctly or locate your device on the network. For whatever reason, sometimes it just doesn't want to cooperate sometimes and seemingly nothing you do will convice it that your device is alive and well on the network (including continous ping to the device and/or opening the web interface while installing). This is particularly true for Win64.

Impossible to scan additional pages without starting all over


The sole message is "Scanner error"? ... Odd.

I'm not sure what version of OmniPage you're working with. This manual's probably in the ballpark:
ftp://ftp.scansoft.com/files/support/manuals/op15guide.pdf/

It looks like they suggest a different route, a different workflow process -- scan in all your images at once, then handle processing in a batch. I think you do some processing, then try to get the next image. This may have nothing at all to do with your "scanner error," but it's worth a try (and if/when you get the error resolved, this is a smarter way to use your time).

Before you go down that road, though, look for some updates. Some errors are often fixed with updates, and it's worth a try.

Look for updates to OmniPage. I believe you can look through the program itself -- was it Help: Update? You can also look here:
http://support.nuance.com/downloads/

There may also be a somewhat newer driver for your scanner; I don't know; the only drivers there are about a year old. The link:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=119&modelid=15562
Scroll down a bit, click on the Drivers and downloads page.

Please please please let me know if this doesn't work for you. And if it doesn't, if you can write down the exact error message, we can try to find out some more answers. If you just bought it, you may also be eligible for free tech support from Canon and/or OmniPage; I don't know. They'll tell you to follow these same steps as well, I'm sure. =)

Scanner problem


I presume your new laptop came with Vista and your old one had XP. Either convert your new laptop to XP (complicated but I wish I'd done it when I got my new computer rather than soldiering on with the indescribable rubbish system that is Vista), or install all the latest drivers, and MP Navigator. loads of the other stuff on the canon installation disk just won't work with Vista. If you have Omnipage SE installed, you will have to get an email link from Canon, whose support website leaves a lot to be desired.
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=10444
Or go to canon europe whose site is not as good (weird to see Canon not going for the simple idea of global support)
I just bought a new full version of Omnipage, but it does annoy me that so soon after buying the MP780 I had to go to all that trouble.

You need to change the default program that is called when you press the Start button. Right now it is set for OmniPage. Go to this link, and in the Search window in the center of the page type "scan using the buttons". Click the Search button, then click on the "How do I scan using the buttons" link. You will get step-by-step instructions for changing the default program. Select Scan Gear Starter or MP Navigator for most purposes.

Communication problem?


Dear CrysC,

I had the same problem with my HP Officejet J5780. I just got it to work with a different paper size.

Don't ask me why this worked, but it did, so I guess that's all that matters.

In Omnipage, I went under the "Tools" menu and clicked on "Options." I then clicked on the tab, "Scanner." I changed the paper size to what I wanted (A 4). I then clicked on "Setup." Despite its recommendations not to do so, I reinstalled my scanner.

After the reinstall, it is now scanning the new paper size.

I hope that I don't have to do this everytime I scan a new paper size...

Good luck!
