It depends on the model of your scanner, some manufacturers have a subsequent driver for any windows OS platforms, for newer OS like XP and Vista sometimes it is available.

most likely if you will tell me what brand and model we should be able to find an appropiate solution for this

I can't found any scanner driver.....i can print but scann....it's impossible SCX-4300


What OS are you running? I don't see any full-feature software but the Samsung site lists a print driver, a scan driver, a universal print driver and a universal scan driver for Windows 2000 through Win7 x64. Similar drivers are also available for the Mac OSX. I'm not certain of the features in the "unified driver" for Linux. The full-feature software is available for Windows.

To find these drivers, go to http://www.samsung.com/ph/consumer/monitor-peripherals-printer/printer-multifunction/mono-multifunction/SCX-4300/XSS/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&tab=support . Click on the Downloads tab and then select Driver. The windows files are all .exe files.

For the SmartThru software go to the above link and select Software instead of Driver. With this software, you will be able to launch a scan from the printer if the monitoring program is running. You should be able to start a scan from the computer with any OS and the Samsung drivers.

Windows XP, Vista and 7 can all acquire scans with Windows software. You can use Paint in all three (File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan). Vista and Win7 add Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan). Vista came with Photogallery and it acquires scans like Paint. (You can download it for XP or Win7.) The Mac also can acquire scans with included software.

One issue that can cause a scanner problem is a bad cable. Scanning requires bidirectional communication with the printer and thus may fail when the printer works. Replace the data cable and make sure to use a direct connection (no USB hub or print server) if you can launch the scan but then it stops.

I hope this helps.

How does one lower the scan resolution on the Dell 2135cn? Currently, a document of twenty - or so - pages, saves to a pdf file of ten-plus megabytes. Far too large to attach to email.


You need to adjust the resolution in the software. Are you using the Dell software and PaperPort or another application?

This will be easiest to do when you launch the scan from the computer. If you have the TWAIN driver loaded, load the document to scan in the ADF and open Paperport. Click FileScan and the available scanners list should open. Choose your scanner (otherwise click the Select button on the left side of the window). Then click OK. Click on the Scanner Display dialog box on the left of the window. Click on Preview. Then adjust the resolution by clicking on the Image Quality tab.

If the document contains is only a series of picture or you have the WIA driver loaded, then use Paint or PhotoGallery (Vista includes the program, but it is available for XP or Windows 7). Then choose File > Import from Camera or Scanner > From Scanner. Open the Advanced Properties dialog box by clicking on Adjust the Quality of the Scanned picture.

I hope this helps.

(The default resolution is used when you launch a scan from the unit itself. It is possible to adjust it once the software loads but you must use the scan to file option, instead of scan to e-mail. Then attach the resultant file to your e-mail.)

I am trying to scann some documents to my computer but the Dell 926 All in One keeps telling me the scan failed, first it telss me it has to download applications then it tells me to use the defaults....


Try a new data cable and a direct connection (if you have a print server or USB hub connected). Scanners require bi-directional communication and can fail when the printer itself works.

Do you have the full software installed or a generic driver? What OS do you have? To see what software/drivers are available: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=PRN_ALL_A926&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid= and choose your OS in the drop down menu. Did you launch the scan from the computer or from the all-in-one? Are you running the monitoring program on your computer (to launch a scan from the unit, this must be running to "listen" for the button press)? Did you set up the software for the destinations for those buttons? Launch scans from the computer first.

Uninstall any generic driver from the OS and unplug the data cable (USB). Then install the software or driver from Dell. Generic drivers often only run the printer.

The full software (and the monitoring program) are not available for Win7. You need to use Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) or Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner) to acquire scans. XP and Vista can also use Paint. (Some versions of Vista also have Windows Fax and Scan as well as Photo Gallery that can acquire scans.)

I hope this helps.

Scanner


Go to this link. Select Windows XP in the Select OS box. You will see Canon's printer driver for the BJC-2100, and under 'Software' you will see ISScan_v350.exe which is actually the driver for the IS-22, compatible with Windows XP.

Install and download both files on your computer. I know that Windows XP has a driver already for the BJC-2100, but it may not work properly with the IS Scan driver.

Software upgrade?


It works fine on XP, I am using it with XP SP3 currently. You should download the current driver from Minolta. Install the software before hooking up the scanner. I prefer to remove any existing drivers and re-boot before installing new drivers.

Updated to Windows Vista and now the Dell 922 AIO scanner won't work


For windows Vista; it is imperative to run the Vista patch which can be found on the Dell website (Downloads and drivers).
Make sure that you run the patch, after removing the printer USB cable from the computer. Restart the computer as the patch suggests and then install the Vista specific drivers, which also need to be downloaded from Dell Website.
Again, do not connect the printer unless the installation software asks you to.
For scanner issues, those who are unable to get anything scanned to their computer, and are able to print, it is essentialy a Firewall/Anti-virus issue. You can check that out by trying to scan using an application such as MSPaint (Start> type 'mspaint' > hit enter).

Software doesn't work anymore


If you got this scanner to work with Windows 98, the scanner is an antique. New scanners are so much better, my first suggestion is to get a new scanner, one that works with Vista as well as XP. It will have all new software that comes with it. Otherwise you could purchase, new software such as Nuance Easy Media Creator 10 Suite, right now you can get it with Paperport 11 added in for FREE. However consider the cost of a new scanner, versus the cost of buying new software only, and running it on the old scanner.
