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.

My scanner is cutting of some of the page. what should I do? My printer is a dell printer.

depending on the type of software you are using, this could be where the problem lies. test the scanner using the scan validation tool.
Start>All programmes>Kodak>Document Imaging>Scan Validation Tool - use the TWAIN driver.

If the scanner scans fine here, then this is software related and you will need to contact the software manufacturer to resolve the issue.

Kodak i40 Scanner - paper jamming

First clean with a damp cloth, then try Isopropyl Alcohol. Dont use solvents. Check if papers are sticky. Stapled papers are 'sticky' even after removing staples. loosen them if required. Notmally rollers last 200,000 to 250,000 scans

Kodak i40 Front loading scan


Try downloading the latest Firmware for the Kodak i40 Scanner at the following page:

Follow the instructions carefully, and make sure that the scanner and the PC DO NOT turn off while doing the Firmware update. I recomend connecting both to a UPS with a known good battery while doing this upgrade.

This should install the latest features including the one that enables front feed.

I can't seem to find a error code 5. What software are you using to scan? Did the error start right after your first? Had the scanner been working?
