You can initiate a scan to the Paint program if you use a Windows Operating System on your computer. From Paint, you can import the scan to your PDF program.

Follow these instructions:

1) Place the document you want to scan on your scanner.
.
2) Go to: Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint.
.
3) When the Paint program opens, (on the top menu bar) click, 'File' (scroll down) and select: 'From Scanner or Camera'.
.
4) Select your device : (Click on your scanner icon) and click, OK.
.
5) Continue to follow the prompts to choose the kind of scan you want - and scan your document.
