Question about Samsung SCX-4216F All-In-One Laser Printer

Can a Samsung SCX-4216F scan to pdf format?

I am helping a friend who wants to scan and archive multi-page documents with the MFP they have which is a Samsung SCX-4216F Multi-function printer.  The logical choice is to scan to an Adobe Acrobat pdf file.  This is easy with HP All-In-One machines.  Can it be done with a SCX-4216F?

In windows, Scx 4216f comes with Samrthru3 which does not come with pdf scan option , however you can use the newer verasion of smarthru4 which is available with scx4100/scx4521f .
All you need to do is choose Scx4216f as the device in smarthru window. and you will be able to scan in PDF format.

Will be quite simple.

Happy Scanning

Why do linux people never solve the problem and say "Get Linux" every time? ********. That is a piece of **** non solution, you even say it doesn't work well.
My Printer isn't scanning to PDF. Guess instead of upgrading the software I should change my entire operating system.

Yes.. all you need is Linux, the Samsung Unified Driver and the SANE backend. The Linux driver is quite poor and needs some adjusting - this is due Samsung's policy of not providing an open source driver. But once it's running, XSane allows you to scan to multiple-page-pdfs even from the ADF.

I Lost the drivers CD after I have formatted my computer, I wonder if you could help me find the drivers my printer Model is : Samsung SCX-4216F All-in-one

First of all, here is the link to the main ONLINE SUPPORT page for your model:

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated.

When you get to the Samsung support page for your printer, click on the DRIVER tab.

Then select from the list what operating system you are using in your computer.

Then click on the blue EXE icon under FILE for the appropriate driver.

When it asks you if you want to RUN or SAVE the file, select RUN.

After that just follow the onscreen instructions for installing the printer driver software and connecting your printer.

Thank you very much and good luck.
