How do i setup scanner from my machine to my laptop? please start from step 1 including cable connectios and scan to folder instructions. I am using windows 8.1 pro

Before you even start, your machines "Network Support" firmware needs to be up to date to be able to connect to a Windows 8.1 PC.
Secondly your machine has to be networked. No USB scanning supported on Ricoh Devices. Create a shared folder on your C: drive called "scans". Share so "everyone" can access the folder. On the MP2852 select scanner mode and tap the block with "Prg Dest" on the screen. Select Folder and Browse for your PC. Enter your PC Username and Password when asked. Find your shared "scans" folder, select it and then tap OK on the screen. Next enter your name and save. You should be good to go. Keep in mind anti-virus and firewalls can block it. Also ensure your PC is part of a "Home Group" otherwise you will not find your PC when you browse from the MP2852. If your PC is not in a "Home Group" then you can just create a "Home Group" under your "Network and Sharing Center" and while you are there ensure that "Password Protected Sharing" is switched off under your "Advanced Sharing Settings" also found in your "Network and Sharing Center".

Check the scanning unit by copying something on the platen. If this does not work, you have a defective scanning system. If it does work, check connections between the PC and the MX870.
Please let me know if this works. If not we can investigate further. Thanks.

The NIC card will need to be reset back to the factory defaults if you do not have the user name and password.

If you contact me through I will assist you with resetting the scanner over the phone.

Once reset the scanner NIC you will need to re input the IP and all your other scanner information.

I hope this is helpful,

Copystar cs 305 scanner is not connecting to computer

I do not know much about the situation but, I'll give it a try. First turn the pwr off to the scanner and try to ping agian just to make sure you are not trying to use an ip adress that is aleady being used. You should not recieve a responce untill you turn the power back on but, if you do get a reponce while the scanner is off change the ip adress on the scanner. Next if that did not help, you will need a correct path to your computer from the scanner like example( \\server\public\scans ) next you will need a username and password to gain access to the shared folder..

Unable to set up scan feature.

First question is do you have universal send on the copier. If you have a Send tab on the touch screen you have it, if you only have a scan tab you do not.

With the send tab you can set the device up to scan, create a file and send it to a network destination. With the scan button you have to install the color network scan gear program on your computer.

This software is just a twain driver that interfaces with the copier through the network. It does not give you any software to drive the scanner, it only gives you a choice for the copier in your list of scanners. You have to use some other program (i.e. Acrobat standard or MS document imaging) to drive. After you install it open it up, let it discover the machine on the netowrk and close it. The interface only points to the device on the wore, it is not directly used for scanning.

If you have a send button I would recommend for your situation that you scan to a shared folder on your desktop. First you create the shared folder, and make sure you can see it from another PC on the network. If your other PC's can't see it the copier won't either. Create a user on the computer with the shared folder for the copier to use. Set that users password to never expire.
Press the additional functions hard button
Press the touch screen button for address book
Add an address to address book # 1
The type of address will be SMB
Register a name for the address (Scan to PC is fine)
there should be a browse button on the screen, press it
Use the up and down arrow to browse up and down the tree
when you see your network browse from the domain to the PC you are scanning to
When you try to expand the PC you will have to enter in the user and password you created for scanning
point to the shared folder you will use
OK your way back out to the user screens
Have fun scanning
