I have tried and failed several times to scan pictures to my pc from the x2500. I even tried it with the comedy lexmark imaging studio that came with it. The thing keeps saying "no communication" but yet it lets me print on it.

Please update your printer driver. Visit the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/aKlcOJ. Select your operating system, download and execute the file. After updating your printer driver, try to scan again.
There are several ways to scan. Place your document face down on the glass. If you have the Lexmark software loaded and running its monitor program, either press the scan button (the second button) on the printer or launch the Lexmark Imaging Studio (Start > All Programs > Lexmark 2300 Series > Lexmark Imaging Studio or double click on the shortcut on the desktop) and click one of the Scan options (pictures or text).
The All-in-one Center will open and you can adjust the scan settings and the destination for the scan. Click Scan Now to scan.
If you have Vista, you can also scan to Paint. In Windows 7, both Paint and Windows Fax and Scan will also acquire scans.
If you have problems, try a new USB cable or connecting to a different port. Scanners require bi-directional communication with the computer and can fail even when the printer works.

The Downloaded software may not have the Lexmark Imaging Studio on the downloaded drivers....
In this case u have to scna and Preview the scanned images using Windows Photo Gallery.....
Click on File and Click on Import from scanner or Camera...........
Then again click on Import...........It will scan and preview the Applications to u....
If the Lexmark software doesn't work you could just try using other software. Picasa http://picasa.google.com is a free photo management software and does a great job of printing photos.
You can scan from an application like Word or using the "Get Picture using Scanner Wizard" menu that shows up when you right click the Scanner in My Computer in Windows.
