  1. Sad how a billion dollar software company still isnt able to make scanning intuitive

  2. It only offers me the flatbed option, and it doesn't offer a pdf option. It also won't allow additional pages.


  4. Thankx its really useable

  5. Wow….Thanks U soooo Much Sir Ji…..Really its Very Helpful…:-)

  6. I'm trying to help my lawyer who is in another state – CONFUSION!

    Seriously though, he understands legalese, not technical things. He sends me copied docs that are 10-12 pages, stapled and tri-folded and I can never scan them because they jam, and then it's one page at a time. It would be much easier from him to scan and email them to me, but he's 68 and technology intimidates him.

    He can locate the scan button on the control panel, and execute a scan, but he has no idea where to locate the scanned docs on his computer. I know the process works because when I was in his office in June I showed him how to do it. He simply cannot locate the documents.

    The company he bought the HP pavilion and OJ 8610 from installed the HP software and I'm sure just used the default settings. What is the name of the default folder created where the scanned docs are saved to? I'm assuming it's as simple is user/documents/scans but I want to be sure so I can create screen caps and send them to him. I might even use crayon!

  7. my printer is connected to my computer but the scanner isn't. When I try to scan it says there is no scanner connected. How do I connect my scanner?
