Go into HP Director and select save to file
send to email or save as pdf should be an option
It should rescan the file and save as pdf
which you can send as an attachment

you should be able to upload to
kodak imaging if it is available
on vista if exist click on file acquire image

I am assuming you had HP Director on
your software cd for the scanner

I really don't have a problem, I would like to know how to scan photos into my computer and them send them in an email. Could you explain it to me so I can understand it. As you can guess, I'm a...

Hey Helen,
This can be hard or easy depending on which softwre your printer/scanner has loaded.
Firstly, install the software that came with your printer scanner.
Once thats done, you should be able to access the scanners functions either through an icon in the taskbar (bottom right corner of your screen) or by pressing the scan button on the printer.
Once the scanner starts up, it should ask if you want to save the scanned image to your PC or, in some cases, email the image.
Save the image into your "my documents" folder so you can find them later and give the file a name that you can easily associate with the image (like my daughter etc)..
Scanning to email will usually start up outlook or outlook express which is no good if you do not use outlook and use a third party email system like hotmail etc.
So, shut down outlook in this case. otherwise, setup your email as you normally would (receivers email address, subject etc)..
If you use hotmail etc, the procedure is about the same..
Once you are ready to attach the image from your scanner, click on "attach" and select file.
In the dialog box that opens, select browse and navigate to your "my documents " folder if it is not already in that folder. Select the file you scanned and named earlier and click on open or attach.
The file will then upload and appear in the list of attachments once uploading is complete.
Click on send and off it goes..

I have just bought a HP Photosmart plus B210 printer. I have installed it ok and it is wireless connected. everything seems ok for printing but when I try to scan to Paint shop Pro 7 or from Word 2003 it...

Hello Carol,

The first thing you want to do is check to make sure the scanner driver is installed properly and working.

If you are running Windows XP or Vista; go to Start Menu \ Control Panel \ Scanners and Cameras
NOTE: For Vista user you must select "classic view" in control panel to see scanners an cameras.

For Windows 7; go to your Start Menu, in the "search programs and files" section (found below "all programs") type in "scan". You will see a result for View Scanners and Cameras.

Now you should see the HP scanner here. If it is not here then you need to reinstall because the scanner was not installed properly. If the scanner is here, right click on it and select Properties. (For Windows 7 you do not have to right click, you will see Properties at the bottom of the window).

In the properties select "test scanner". If this test fails, the driver is not working and you should uninstall and reinstall the HP.

If this test works then the driver is properly installed. HP should have provided you with some sort of scanning software, try scanning using that. You can also try scanning using Windows Fax and scan (for windows 7), Windows Photo Gallery (Windows Vista) or the Windows Scan wizard (Windows XP).

Scanning to email

The all in one solution software you used in XP doen't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Canon MP620) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Then just save it as a GIF or a JPEG and send it as an attachment.

Hope that helps.

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.
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.

Pixma mp520 scanner won't scan

I emailed Canon Tech Support (after searching their MP FAQ) and received this response. It worked for me:

Please follow these steps to set the push button event for the MP520
1. Click on the Windows button and then Control Panel.
2. Double-click 'Scanners and Cameras'. For Vista users, if 'Scanners and Cameras' is not listed, click 'Switch to Classic View' on the left and then try again.
3. Double-click on the MP520.
4. Next, click on the Events tab.
5. For the 'Send to this application' option, select ScanGear driver, MP Navigator, or imaging application you would like to use for the scan button event in the list.
6. Click Apply or OK to save your settings.
