Question about Brother MFC 7840W Printer
If you already know how to scan ordinarily, you could actually scan and copy it to word and convert it from the word button menu.
If you are using windows xp, go to my Computer and double click on your scanner icon listed there. The scanner dialogue box comes up. Simply follow the on-screen instruction there to complete your scan.
If you are on windows vista go to start/All programs/windows photo gallery. When it opens go to file/import from scanner or camera. The scanner dialogue box comes up and you can select your scanner and follow the on-screen instructions to complete your scan.
When done go to to your pictures folder or your scan folder, depending on your settings, locate your scan, copy it, paste it in Word and convert it to pdf.

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.

SOURCE: I'm finding that the scanning
Hi, you can reduce the file size by decreasing the DPI (dots per inch) or resolution of the scanned image. This can typically either be done from the scanner's control panel or from the software installed on your computer. The less DPI you set it for, the smaller your file will be.
Some scanners will also allow you to compress files. If the MFC-7840W will let you, the option would be in the software program, and it should say "enable file compression" or "enable image compression" or something similar.

i had the same issue - was previously able to scan to a number of different formats, then switched modems, providers and then only the scan to ftp option came up.
took me about an hour to figure out the solution, but now it works
for windows users: * go to your control panel * go to the scanners & cameras section * your printer/scanner should show up here * right click on it and select 'properties' * select the network settings tab and then -- enter in the correct ip address here OR -- specify your machine by name (enter in name here)
hope this helps!
