I have been using Adobe Acrobat 6.0 standard for years. Been scanning documents (hundreds if not thousands) for my home business. Now all of sudden I can't scan. For the past week keep getting this error message:
Error while interacting with scanner. the selected scanner was not found.
The selected scanner is a Lexmark all in one X1150. Only scanner I've used since I put AA 6.0 on my computer.
I can scan the opposite way (through the lexmark to a PDF file), but first I have to preview it (to size it), then I have to scan it, and then save it as an individual file, then combine them together. Rather time consuming when working with a 60+ page document.
Any thoughts at all will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, eh.

Make sure you have Adobe acrobat or similar installed so that you have PDF available on the PC. It may also be in the software for the Epson. I had a scanner a few years ago whose software excluded PDF and I ended up installing new software of a generic printer / scanner to use Adobe PDF
Not all scanners or scanner software scan to pdf since it is a file that is attributed to adobe. There are free pdf converters out there you can download. Maybe after installing it it will show up as an option. If not that, you can buy adobe acrobat and it has an option to create a pdf from you scanner straight up.
Yes, if you have a program that lets you edit PDF files. You may want to run an OCR program first to process any words that may not have scanned properly. (There is one free version, SimpleOCR, www.simpleocr.com/ . However, it doesn't process text in multiple columns well.) If you have Adobe Acrobat, then you have direct access. Otherwise, you need one of the PDF editors (on-line or local - I haven't tried the cheap Acrobat alternatives), or a PDF converter for your word processor (an add-on is available for many, including Microsoft Office's Word, if it isn't already built-in).
Where is DPE? - When I tried to save a pdf-file (black/white), I was asked this question and my application folder opened automatically. I am using Mäc Leopard and hp g 4050 scanner. Who can help me solving this problem? I don't even know, what DPE means. Martin (Morogoro-TZ)
Have you considered simply scanning from within Adobe Acrobat or similar software that produces .pdf and then use the email feature within Acrobat?
As I look over the HP User Manual, I can't see any method to set the default output. It simply says...
Use the E-MAIL button() to scan documents or pictures and insert them in an e-mail message as an attachment. You must have an Internet connection and a supported e-mail application.
1. Place the original face down on the scanner glass or face up in the ADF. If you are scanning two-sided originals from an ADF, slide the DUPLEX switch to two-sided mode.
2.Press the E-MAIL button().A message appears asking if the original is a document or a picture.
3.Select Document or Picture, and click OK.Note:A preview image will not appear when scanning from the ADF. To change this preview setting, see the HP Photo & Imaging software Help.
4. Select the final scan area (the area inside the dotted lines) in the preview image.
5. Make adjustments to the preview image if needed.
6. Click Accept.The final scan area is scanned and your e-mail application is opened. The scanned image is added as an attachment to the e-mail message.
7. The Save As dialog box appears. Type a file name and choose a file type, and click OK.
8. Complete the e-mail as usual.
You are right, it is driver related issue. Acobat 9 has more features that may not be compatible with the existing driver. may be you can use CapturePerfect and directly create PDF and then use the Optimising features of Acrobat 9. Ofcourse you have to do it twice, but you can use the 'batch' process and do it automatically.
Upgrade to Acobat 9.0 Pro. It seems to work in that can scan pages for a document, HOWEVER, adding/appending to already scaned pages for a document seems to crash 9.0. For example, say I scan in pages 1 - 4. I cannot then scan pages 5 -6 as part of the same document--crashes Acrobat.
I think this finally proves the problem is Acrobat 8.0 and NOT the i40 drivers.
