General Notes (Scanner Driver)
ScanGear (scanner driver) is subject to the following restrictions. Keep these points in mind when using
it.
Scanner Driver Restrictions
When using the NTFS file system, the TWAIN data source may not be invoked. This is because the
TWAIN module cannot be written to the winnt folder for security reasons. Contact the computer's
administrator for help.
Some computers (including laptops) connected to the machine may not resume correctly from
standby mode. In that case, restart the computer.
Do not connect two or more machines or multifunction printers with scanner function to the same
computer simultaneously. If multiple scanning devices are connected, you cannot scan from a
button on the machine (Scanner Button) and also may experience errors while accessing the
devices.
Use the default display font size of the OS. Otherwise, software screens may not appear correctly.
Scanning may fail if the computer has resumed from sleep or standby mode. In that case, follow
these steps and scan again.
1. Turn off the machine.
2. Exit ScanGear, then disconnect the USB cable from the computer and reconnect it.
3. Turn on the machine.
ScanGear cannot be opened in multiple applications at the same time. Within an application,
ScanGear cannot be opened for the second time when it is already open.
Be sure to close the ScanGear window before closing the application.
Make sure that you have adequate disk space available when scanning large images at high
resolutions. For example, at least 300 MB of free space is required to scan an A4 document at 600
dpi in full-color.
Thick documents may not be cropped correctly when scanned. In that case, crop each item
individually or crop manually.
ScanGear and WIA driver cannot be used at the same time.
Do not enter the computer into sleep or hibernate state during scanning.
Calibration may take time if the machine is connected via USB 1.1.
Applications with Restrictions on Use
If you start Media Center included in Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, you may not be able to
scan using a button on the machine (Scanner Button). In that case, restart the computer.
You cannot scan images with Media Center included in Windows Vista and Windows XP Media
Center Edition 2005. Scan with other applications such as MP Navigator EX.
In some applications, if you select the View scanned images checkbox in the Auto Scan Mode tab of
ScanGear, the window displaying the thumbnails of the scanned images may close automatically.
Some applications may not display the TWAIN user interface. In that case, refer to the application's
manual and change the settings accordingly.
Some applications do not support continuous scanning of multiple documents. In some cases, only
the first scanned image is accepted, or multiple images are scanned as one image.
When scanning platen size images into Microsoft Office 2000/2003 (Word, Excel or PowerPoint) etc.,
click Custom Insert in the Insert Picture from Scanner or Camera screen. Otherwise, images may
Page 19 of 334 pages
General Notes (Scanner Driver)
Page: 19
not be scanned correctly.
When scanning images into Microsoft Office 2007 (such as Word, Excel or PowerPoint), use
Microsoft Clip Organizer.
Images may not be scanned correctly in some applications. In that case, increase the operating
system's virtual memory and retry.
When image size is too large (such as when scanning large images at high resolution), your
computer may not respond or the progress bar may remain at 0% depending on the application. In
that case, cancel the action (for example by clicking Cancel on the progress bar), then increase the
operating system's virtual memory or reduce the image size/resolution and retry. Alternatively, scan
the image via MP Navigator EX first, then save and import it into the application.

On-screen Manual > Scanning Guide > Placing Documents
Placing Documents
Learn how to place documents on the machine's Platen. Place documents correctly according to the type
of document to be scanned. Otherwise, documents may not be scanned correctly.
Important
Do not place items that weigh 4.4 lbs (2.0 kg) or more on the Platen. Also, do not press on the
document with a force exceeding 4.4lbs (2.0 kg). If you press heavily, the scanner may not work
correctly or you might break the glass.
Close the Document Cover when scanning.
When scanning documents other than film, make sure that the FAU (Film Adapter Unit) Protective
Sheet is attached to the Document Cover. Without the FAU Protective Sheet, the document type may
not be detected correctly.
Note
See "Placing Film" to scan film.
Placing Documents
Place documents as described below to allow the machine to detect the document type or size
automatically.
Important
When scanning by specifying the document type or size in MP Navigator EX or ScanGear (scanner
driver), align an upper corner of the document with the corner at the arrow (alignment mark) of the
Platen.
Photos that have been cut to various shapes and documents smaller than 1.18 inches (3 cm)
square cannot be cropped accurately when scanning.
Reflective CD/DVD labels may not be scanned properly.
When Scanning Photos, Postcards, Business
Cards or CD/DVD
When Scanning Magazines, Newspapers or Text
Documents
Placing a Single Document
Place the document face-down on the Platen, with
0.39 inches (1 cm) or more space between the
edges (diagonally striped area) of the Platen and
the document. Portions placed on the diagonally
striped area cannot be scanned.
Place the document face-down on the Platen and
align an upper corner of the document with the

Page 21 of 334 pages
Placing Documents
Page: 21
Important
Large documents (such as A4 size photos)
that cannot be placed away from the edges/
arrow (alignment mark) of the Platen may be
saved as PDF files. To save in a format other
than PDF, scan by specifying the file format.
Placing Multiple Documents
Allow 0.39 inches (1 cm) or more space between
the edges (diagonally striped area) of the Platen
and documents, and between documents.
Portions placed on the diagonally striped area
cannot be scanned.
Note
You can place up to 12 documents.
Positions of slanted documents (10 degrees
or less) are corrected automatically.
Important
The portion within 2 mm inwards from the
alignment mark cannot be scanned.

To avoid damaging the light source, be sure to attach the FAU Protective Sheet when not scanning
film.
Placing Film
Important
Hold the film by the edge to avoid smudges and fingerprints.
Dust on the film or Platen appears in scanned images. Remove dust from the film and Platen.
