SOURCE: scan multiple pages to one file
There are several programs available for downloading that work as print to pdf... some free some not. You can try pdf creator it's free and works well for me, the download isn't very long and the install is super easy.
after you install the program, you should see a pdf printer in your printer selections. You don't want to try to save your file, you have to select print and then select the pdf print to file option in your printer selection. Print the first file to a file you create to save it as a pdf. for the subsequent files you will need to choose Append to an existing pdf file and select the file you have created.
Test the file to see that both of your scans are in there and that they are in the order you want them to be in. If all that works find, you can follow the same procedure with each scanned page and they should all end up in one file.
the pdf print to file is also a great way to save webpages in one single file :)
hope that helps!

Be kind m'53. Maybe you can scan to a folder, then use print setup to compile all the data on one page, if it's not much data. You'll have to do all this with the computer, don't expect the scanner to do that. There is always lots of software out there to do this kind of stuff.

Looking at my manual , it tells me you have a software user guide on the cd-rom ....this is where you will find the answer.

that should be because you scanned the pages separately, did you notice if the PDF document converted was the very last page of the 13paged document which you wanted to make a document from? if that's right, then you just only converted the last scanned page into PDF, to stick all the pages together, i recoment you treating them as images and using word to stick them all together with the "insert>image> from archive" adjusting the size of the image at 1 page and with each 13 pages do the same until you have a full document of 13 images in 13 pages then you can convert it into PDF

You must get an Adobe program to do that... OR combine them later. Adobe Professional 8 will allow scanning multiple pages into a document I use it all the time. There are also other PDF makers/converters too, to download. Another way is to scan into Word, or similar, and then "Print" as a PDF.
