About Scanning Images

You can scan images from the machine into a computer, and save them in JPEG, TIFF, PDF, or
Bitmap format. Then you can process that data by using the supplied application software to create
original images. Furthermore, you can use the supplied OCR (Optical Character Recognition)
software to convert scanned paper documents to text data.
Before Scanning
Before scanning images, confirm as follows:
Does the document to be scanned meet the requirements for being set on the Platen Glass?
For details, see page 15.
Is the machine connected to your computer correctly?
Make sure your machine and computer are correctly connected with the USB cable.

If you performed the [Custom Install] and only installed the MP Driver
and MP Navigator, these application software were not installed and
thus cannot be launched. To launch any of the above application
