The HP SCANNER SPECS say:
Scan file format
Bitmap (.bmp), JPEG (.jpg), PNG (.png), TIFF (.tif), PDF (.pdf), Searchable PDF (.pdf), Text (.txt), Rich Text (.rtf).
That means it is supported. What you can try is to try and uninstall ("Programs and Features in Windows) the Adobe PDF program and get the free one to install again from: http://www.adobe.com/products/reader.html
If it still doesn't work (links itself into Windows and the HP software), try reinstalling the HP software or go to HP.COM and you can download the latest full-version file for your 4625 printer.
All you need to do is use the MP Navigator. With that up and running you simply scan all the images then choose the save as PDF option. You only need the Adobe on your system to read the file, not to create it.
The Navigator will allow you to create and correct the images into a multi page PDF. It should be on the instalation CD if you have not loaded up Navigator.
Might need a bit more information about this: But I'm presuming you scan your document and save it as a pdf document using the built in HP software?
Couple of things to try:
1 - have you got the latest version of Adobe Reader? It may be that you are using an older version - the pdf document specification has been updated over the years and it may be that you're saving the pdf using a newer version of the pdf format than adobe reader is able to read.
2 - Adobe reader isn't the only pdf viewer, there are numerous other pdf document viewers (some free some not) You could try another pdf viewer, like Foxit Reader (free to use) and see if that can open it?
3 - When you save the scan, make sure that in the Save Dialog box it is really saving it as pdf. Common mistake is that people often just save a file with .pdf and expect the program to know that you want to save as pdf. When you scan there are several other file formats that you can use (Tiff, Jpeg etc) Is is possible you're saving the file as Tiff or Jpeg but with a .pdf file extension? If you're not sure, re-scan the document and resave it, but don't use a file extension, let the scanning program do that, see what it saves it as?
4 - check where you're saving the pdf on your computer? Is the place you're trying to open it from, the same as the place you've saved it?
You need to open your scanner program up, you will see a window representing a Scanner Platen, Open scanner and place image Face Down on glass, and close lid. Now click on "Preview" this will scan the image and allow you to "Select" exactly what via resizable selection box, that you can grab with your cursor and set it to whatever you want to actually scan. Now click the "Scan" button, this time it will do a"Final Scan" and ask you where to save it, usually it is saved as a JPG, if other formats are available use whichever one you wish. may have JPG, BMP PDF. Save your image. Now you can use this image how you want.
Also once a scanner is installed you can scan into say Word, or Adobe, Publisher etc. Document by using the scanner. A Twain driver is installed so it can communicate between applications.
You must associate that function, PDF, Mail, with the right program, also of course you must have the program installed too. Of course you can also get say adobe professional and this allows you to scan from Adobe. Or use Word and scan it in to that, and save it (print it) as a PDF, or get DoPDF, this will, "Print" any image to PDF. As for email, simply open your email, & scan whatever whatever you want, and "attach it" to the email, and browse to where it is and select it.
