Word 2003 'save as' problem

Following the install of Canon 2580 and bundled s/w, when I go to 'save as' in word 2003 to save a new document from a template I no longer get the folder list box to save to. This happened previously when I installed the scanner on a diferent machine but seemed to right itself after some time.

Anyone experience anything similiar?

It is possible that some .dll files in the OS are corrupted. Try running scandisk.

I need to copy a word document however when I scan it, it makes it into a jpg document. What can do I fix this in order to be able to edit and save the scanned document as a word document?

Make sure you installed the full software suite for your scanner. Scanners do scan to image files but should come bundled with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software. Select the OCR option in your scanner settings and it will convert your scans to an editable format. Take note, OCR software is only as good as the scan, and the content on the paper, so it might make some mistakes, in which you will have to manually fix in Word etc "proofing"...

Canon Scanner DR-2580-C (Black lines around border of document)

It seems that your scanner is conflicting with previously installed software. It is impossible to say whether it is Canon or Adobe. Reinstalling Acrobat or updating it may work as trying a different folder like Desktop instead of My Documents. One or more drivers are at fault. What system are you running? 2000, XP, Linux? Update your video rendering software too. Let me know so that I can help solve this issue. Just try as mentioned first.

Re: Canon CanoScan LiDe 90: I used to be able to scan documents directly as PDF's but now that I had to re-install the scanner onto a new computer, it only allows me to scan as a Photo (jog / tif etc)....

I have many years experience repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion for you.

Well an easy way to do this is to scan them and save them as a word document if you can, or save them as a .txt (text) document some where on your computer. Then if you have the full version of Adobe go to where you saved them and convert them to a .pdf. But I think only the full version of Adobe will do this for you. There are free .pdf convertors if you google for them.

I hope this helps you out.

I have installed scanner and disc but cannot find how to use it.I found the test box and that works but now how do I scan?thanks

Canon and other Scanners have both hardware and software buttons to scan documents and photographs.
Scanning with a computer is done with a destination in mind. So the buttons and the software are associated with destinations.
Typical destinations are File, email, Application, and print.
In a simple scan process for copy or print, the item is placed face down on the scanner, then the print button is pressed on the front of the scanner.
The software for the scanner pops up on the screen and the scanner moves the imaging light across the scanner under the glass, reading the item on the scanner. The software sends the image to the default printer and it prints a copy.

You will need to setup your preferences in the software so that a photograph is scanned properly and a newspaper article is scanned to come out clear black and white.
Documents are best saved as PDF files and photographs as TIFF files.
The software will have an expert mode where you can change all the settings and a beginner mode where you let the software decide.
Canon has a great document for your scanner. If it is not on the disk, here is the link. It is called CanoScan 4200F Scanning Guide. I think it will help you to use the scanner for any task.

I have an epson 2580 it now produces somewhat

The only way you're going to know if it's the scanner or the driver for sure is to install it on say an XP machine and see what results you get. If it's still dark, it's the scanner, if not, it's the driver.
