Does your home cooking program facilitate IMPORTING a file? look under the pull down file menu and see if you can locate import. If it is there it should open on over and show ou your scanner which you can choose and proceed to scan the recipe. If it does not, You should be able to scan it to word pad , then selcet all> copy and paste it into your recipe program in a new file. Since I don;t know precisely what your program is or how it works, I suspect that the first opetion is your best bet. Look around in your program and look under help in the program to "import" a recipe or file.


Good luck.

I have HP Officejet J3680 All in one I wanted to scan a document but it is saying there is not option..


canning functionality from the LJ3380 and CLJ2840 series All-in-One devices may not function until the correct Twain Data Source is selected by the user. This can be done by attempting to scan from the foundation scan executable "hppscan2.exe ".
  • For the LJ3380 series this is located in C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\LJ3015_LJ3020_LJ3030_LJ3380->hppscan2.exe
  • For the CLJ2840 this is found in C:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\bin->hppscan2.exe
When the "hppscan2.exe " is launched from this location where it resides, a dialog box will open with a "Select Source " box listing the installed Twain scanning devices available. If this box is not seen, then there is only one Twain device installed. In some instances user input is needed to chose the "correct" Twain data source for scanning to be successful from the LJ3380 and CLJ2840 series devices. If the incorrect Twain data source is selected- an error "Cannot initialize device " will be seen.

When I try to scan I get a message - connect to Twain source but I don't know what they are talking about?


The TWAIN device is the scanner itself. The program seems to be saying it can't see the scanner.

Is this scanner new to your computer?
Have you installed the driver for it?
Which program is giving you the error message?

How do I transfer a scanned document into my computer say into a word document where i can save it


Well in word you go to Top Menu, go to, INSERT, go down to INSERT PICTURE, it ask FROM... choose from Scanner, and then the native scanning window will come up, where you can do your scans. When you finish, it automatically saves it to that document, which you can then name & save. MSPaint has similar features. You see when you installed your driver it also installed, or should have, a TWAIN driver, this allows transfer across MS programs

When I open HP Scan Pro and attempt to scan a document it tells me the scanner is not found. It is plugged in by USB correctly.


The computer is looking for a "Twain" device. Although the printer is correctly installed, to scan a document or picture, you need a program to associate with the scanner and identify the "Twain" device. To do this, open up any photo software or even MS Paint. Under the File tab there should be an option to Import or Import from a device i.e. camera, scanner. This is the option you want. Select your HP Scan Pro as the Twain device and you can scan from your computer. The other way would be to open HP Imaging software package that came with the machine and configure your scanner from within the program. Either way works its just a matter of preference. Best of luck and reply back with any questions.

I have hewlet packard all in one j4680 I can copy,print & fax. I want to know how to scan and put on the computer


You first need to have the HP software that came with the printer installed, and the most up to date drivers will also help make sure there aren't any compatibility issues.
Once you have that set up, on the control panel on the printer itself press the arrow buttons until you have Scan selected. Press OK. Press the RIGHT arrow to choose what you'd like to do with the scan when it's finished and press OK. Then press the START button.
You can also start a scan from within the program provided by HP with the printer, and many graphics editing programs and word processing programs (such as Word) have a Scan button. Sometimes referred to as an Inport from TWAIN Device or Scan from TWAIN Device. Simply clicking on one of those buttons usually starts the needed program to control the scan from on the computer, instead of using the buttons on the printer itself. (NOTE: The TWAIN device options are sometimes inside the Edit menu of some programs, so you may need to look for it a little.)

I have installed the UE 404090, but cannot scan to my PC. It says no twain compliant found. If I press scan/file on the machine it says select destination _ what can I do there?


Hi,

Have you at some point installed a second scanning device on the system..

Reason being TWAIN is configured slightly different by every manufacturer to optomise the working of their hardware.

It some cases when you install a TWAIN device for Scanner A this can interfere with Scanner B
Usually its because your trying to use TWAIN(scanner A) on Scanner B

Make sense?

Make sure (if you have installed another scanner device) that you are using the TWAIN software that came with .

You might need to reinstall the entire set up from beginning.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have an officejet 4315v all-in-one i would like to scanner


Twain
Hi, normally, if you have installed the complete driver set, the easiest way is to run a program with scanning capability i.e. photoshop, or word. the software normally given with a scanner is a 'twain' which becomes linked to the photoshop program. If you have MS word (I'll use this as an exAmple ), ensure the scanner software is installed, the brother switched on and connected to the computer correctly click Insert select picture then scanner - (or it may say twain). At this point the Brother mini program - the 'twain' should start and then follow the scanner instructions and a scan of whAtever you have selected should be inserted into the word document. Bit of trivia - TWAIN stands for Tool With An Interesting Name - yup it really is!.

Error message


What is your operating system?

If XP, check your device manager to see if the scanner is being recognized by XP.

What is your scanning software?
Try to use another scan program ( a free demo version should work fine.)

Are you using TWAIN or an ISIS driver? If it is a TWAIN driver, then any Photo editing program should be able to connect ( usuallly!?).
