Scan to file on DSc525

I am having trouble setting up a scan to file folder that the Gestetner DSc525 can locate, find, browse, recognize and thus scan to. The old computer was Windows XP and the DSc525 found it. Now it cannot find the network and will not communicate. We can print to it, but cannot scan from it to the Windows 7 computer.

SOURCE: Scanner Delivery server fails on my Gestetner dsc232

First, it doesn't work on Vista, if you have upgraded you OS??

So, have all of the destinations disappeared off the display?, and "updating destination list has failed' message displays" (or something similar).
If this is the case........ have you tried going into the "Scanrouter V2 admin utility", and under the "server" button select "set I/O device", then select "remove". If you are asked to "retain settings" select "no". Then click "add", then "Browse", it should find the machine, select "ok" then name it whatever you want -it's for identification only
This helps when (for some reason) the machine has become disasscociated with the Ip address for lack of a better description -particularily if the software is not installed on a machine with a statc IP.
Do the destinations still appear but the scans do not reach their destination even though they appear to be sent?
This happens when the Windows login password has been changed, because Scanrouter is linked to the admin password.
The way to tell is if you click to open the "Scanrouter V2 admin Utility", and get a message pertaining to a "wrong password" or similar. - Enter the NEW windows login password
Has windows Firewall been enabled? TCP port #3670 needs to be opened

Please let me know if any of these solutions help, and Please rate me :)

SOURCE: How to Network the scan function of a Gestetner DSm635

Most IT departments don't know how. They won't admit that but it is true. You already print to the thing so all that has to happen is setting up SMB shares on the computers and telling the scanner where to scan. Your very best option would be to contact your printer repair company and ask if they have a connectivity or networking specialist that could help you. If they are a good company they may even call your IT people and help them help you. And of course nothing technical comes for free.
I hope that helps.

Connot make a pdf scan. get a reply thet there not enough space. installed latest drivers. working with xp

Issue: ERROR: Insufficient space on target disk
Solution: Change where temporary files are saved (Toolbox)

Change where temporary files are saved (Toolbox) For an unknown reason, the computer is not allowing temporary data to be written to the general folder chosen by Toolbox at the time of install.
  1. From the CanoScan Toolbox, click the Settings button.
  2. At the bottom you will see a section that states, "Select Folder Where Temporary Files are Saved:".
    Click the Browse button.
  3. Browse to a folder, such as C:\Temp, and then click OK.
  4. Click OK again to exit the Settings window.
  5. Try scanning again.

Scanned files placement

Hi kbush58,

Yes, you can choose where or create a new destination file for your scanner. Your printer should have management utility. On the first page you see there should be a toolbar with items like File, Tools> preferences etc.. preferences is what we want. In Pref. you can browse where you want your scans, copies or whatever to go. This is where creating a new folder comes in. I always tell everyone that it is easiest to create the new folder on your desktop, that way you don't forget where it is. Name the folder anything you want I would suggest psc2210scans or whatever. In device utility/prefrences browse to your new folder and select it, that's it. Now your unit will deliver your data here. I hope this helps you.

Thanks for using

Sincerely, cyyyd7

When you see the File Save Settings window, you need to select the location, name, and format of the scanned image file you want to save.
  1. In the File Save Settings window, specify the file folder in which you want to save your scanned image. Click the My Documents or My Pictures radio button (Windows XP or earlier versions), or the Documents or Pictures radio button (Windows Vista or Mac OS X).
  2. If you want to select another folder, click Other, then click Browse (Windows) or Choose (Mac OS X) and select the folder. If you want to save your image on the desktop, simply click Other.
  3. Specify a file name prefix with an alphanumeric character string. A 3-digit number is automatically added to the file name, but you can change the Start Number if you like. If you are scanning multiple images at once, each image will receive a different 3-digit number.
  4. Select a file format. Depending on the format, the Options button may be available for making detailed settings.
  5. The check boxes at the bottom of the window give you these options:
  • Overwrite any files with the same name: Select this option if you want to reuse the selected file name and location and overwrite previous files with the same names.
  • Show this dialog box before next scan: Select this option if you want the File Save Settings window to appear automatically before you scan in Home or Professional Mode. If you deselect it, you must click the File Save Settings button to open the window.
  • Open image folder after scanning: Select this option if you want Windows Explorer or the Macintosh Finder to automatically open to the folder where your scanned image is saved when Epson Scan finishes scanning.
6. Do one of the following, depending on the currently selected scan mode:
  • Home or Professional Mode: Click OK. Epson Scan starts scanning.
  • Full Auto Mode: Click OK, click OK again, then click Scan. Epson Scan starts scanning.
The scanned image is saved in the file and location you chose.
