Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Which device do you have? If it is an all-in-one that does not have an automatic document feeder (ADF), you lift up the scanner cover and place your photo face down on the glass. If there is an ADF, place the document face up in the feeder. (Using the ADF is not recommended for pictures.)
If it is a stand-alone scanner, the cover is more obvious. For single-sheet scanners, check the manual for which side of the document needs to be forward.
Depending on the OS and software installed, you launch your scan program and adjust the resolution and destination and press scan. (If you have an all-in-one, you may need to install the manufacturer's full-featured software first. Otherwise you will only get printing enabled.) If you use a generic OS driver, the buttons on the unit will not trigger the computer responding to the commands.
Set the destinations for scanner buttons in the software before using the unit buttons when using the full-featured software. Check the manual for specific information. The button presses are noticed by a monitoring program. If that isn't running the unit buttons will not work.
I hope this helps.
(Windows XP, Vista and Win7 all accept scans in Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan). Vista and Win7 also have Windows Fax and Scan that can acquire scans.)
