Scanning
Scanning with your machine lets you turn pictures and text into digital 
files on your computer. Then you can fax or e-mail the files, display them 
on your web site or use them to create projects that you can print using 
Xerox software or the WIA driver.

• Check the Operating System(s) that are compatible with your 
printer. Please refer to the OS Compatibility section of Printer 
Specifications in your Printer User’s Guide.
• You can check your printer name in the supplied CD-ROM.
• The maximum resolution that can be achieved depends upon 
various factors, including computer speed, available disk space, 
memory, the size of the image being scanned, and bit depth 
settings. Thus, depending on your system and what you are 
scanning, you may not be able to scan at certain resolutions, 
especially using enhanced dpi.
Scanning Process with TWAIN-
enabled Software 
If you want to scan documents using other software, you will need to use 
TWAIN-compliant software, such as Adobe Photoshop. The first time 
you scan with your machine, select it as your TWAIN source in the 
application you use. 
The basic scanning process involves a number of steps:
1
Make sure that your machine and computer are turned on and 
properly connected to each other.
2
Load the document(s) face up into the DADF (or ADF).
OR
Place a single document face down on the document glass.
3
Open an application, such as PhotoDeluxe or Photoshop. 
4
Open the TWAIN window and set the scan options.
5
Scan and save your scanned image.

OTE
: You need to follow the program’s instructions for acquiring an 
image. Please refer to the user’s guide of the application.
Scanning Using the WIA Driver
Your machine also supports the Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) driver 
for scanning images. WIA is one of the standard components provided 
by Microsoft
® 
Windows
® 
XP and works with digital cameras and 
scanners. Unlike the TWAIN driver, the WIA driver allows you to scan 
and easily manipulate images without using additional software.
