Scanning pictures and saving to compact flash card for sharing
Is it possible to scan photographs with the Brother MFC 240C scanner and save them or output them directly to a compact flash card for easy sharing? In other words, can you scan and save the image to any accepted storage media without having the MFC hooked up to a computer? Or are the media slots intended just for photocapturing and then printing with the MFC? The reason for the query is that I have a stand alone MFC in one room and the USB cable is too short to reach the desktop in another room. I guess I could move the MFC to the other room but that means having to move phone cables for the fax function as well, kind of a hassle.

Re: scanning pictures and saving to compact flash card...
You might want to try to be sure, but I believe the SD card slot is only for printing, not for saving images. You would have to have the copier hooked up to a computer or to a network in order to send the scanned images somewhere.

I am not sure this machine has an automatic Scan to PC option. Brother seems to like to avoid this part of most machines. Depending on your Operation System you will still be able to access the scanning system. The operation system would define which method it uses. Win XP you can access the scanner through the Printers and Faxes option on the start menu. Go to printers and faxes and then from there access scanners on the sidebar. Find your machine and open the inbuilt scanner software to scan your photos and save them to your computer. Then e-mail the saved files.
When you save the scanned file you can save it to your computer and then copy the file to the memory card. When the scan is completed you can Save As (the file) and select the file location - the memory card to copy the file directly onto the memory card.
Hi Scan the document using Canon PIXMA its very simple follow the mention below instruction to scan to document, picture & email.
Turn on the computer and thescanner.
Open the lid of the scanner andplace the photograph face down on the glass scanner bed. Close the scanner lid.
Click "Start" on the computer.Click "Programs." Double-click "ArcSoft Photostudio 5.5."
Click "File" after Arcsoft programopens. Click "Select Source." Click on the scanner model.
Click "File." Click "Acquire." Thescanner will begin to scan the photograph.
Click "Select Source." Click"Preview." A preview of the photograph will appear on the screen.
Drag the selection box to select theentire photo to scan or a portion of the photo. To crop the picture, click anddrag one corner of the selection box. Adjust the position of the photograph onthe scanner bed if the photo is on an angle.
Click "Scan" to begin the finalscan. The scanned photo will open in PhotoStudio editing window.
Click "File." Click "Save." A "Save Picture"dialog box will open. Type the name of the picture in the "File Name" field.Click on the arrow located on the "Save as Type" pull-down menu to choose theformat of photograph (JPEG or GIF are the usual formats for internet use).Click "Save." The photograph is now saved on your computer.
The best way to scan images to save on yourcomputer is to use the scanner software on the computer. Not the scan functionon the scanner. You don't say what type of scanner software you have but usually scannersoftware works this way: 1) Place photo on scanner 2) Open scanner software 3) Using the software, Initiate scan 4) Name the Scanned item and save it to your desired location/folder Note: some applications will automatically save to --My Documents--My Pictures 5) Repeat process for each pic to be scanned
Also, if you are just scanning, it should not matter what the ink situation is.
any scanner, indeed any document, picture format can be saved as pdf. i would suggest first scanning the document as text (for example to words, or openoffice or indeed whatever you use as your document management program) and then port it (sort of print operation) to any free available "translator" program which allow you to save file as pdf. alternatively you can scan your document as jpeg and then save it as pdf, but this tend to produce very messy outlook and results are usually horrible.
Hi, I would uninstall the dodgy mydvd program, and use Spybot to clean up the malware it has spread on your system.
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 Brother MFC240c) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.
What you seem to want to do is not possible. Let me explain: A file that has its data in the Adobe company Portable Document Format (or a pdf file) contains various objects that are described to the computer using a superset of the PostScript language, some of them can be images.
A file that comes from the scanner is first a very organized set of pixels and gets put into a more compact form by using a well known process as defined by the Joint Motion Picture Experts group. This is a roundabout way of saying that it has a format that isn't PDF.
What you CAN do: a) open the jpeg file with a Macintosh, using the Print command from the file menu make a pdf file that has the image in it.
b) buy and install a PDF printer driver on a Windows machine, and then follow the same process as A above.
c) Use your favorite PDF creation program to make a file with the image embedded.
