Scanning multiple pages with Windows Fax and Scan

I can't understand how to scan multiple pages in a document on Windows 7 using the Windows Fax and Scan program. Using the same printer (Canon MX300), I can scan in several pages in a single file on my old XP using Windows Office Document Imaging. It works very well. I tried to download this program on my Windows 7 computer and I can scan, but the pages are blank! Can someone help me get this figured out?

MODI is part of the office and requires the rest of the Office to be there. You can also use a PDF as PDF-Xchange Viewer writer to import your pages scanned in a multipage. PDF of the file and send it by fax.

  • Problem with Windows Fax and Scan.

    I have a Canon MG5420 and Win7 64-bit.  All of a sudden, the Office does not see the scanner.  The print function continues to operate correctly.  Problem occurs regardless of USB or WiFi connection.  The only change in my system is a migration towards Office365.  Other than that, no change. I tried all the basics: refreshed drivers, uninstalled the printer and re-installed.  Any thoughts on what could be the cause?  I get the message error is "No. scanners were detected.  The utility Scan Canon IJ can see the scanner, but I prefer to use the Windows fax and scan.  Any ideas?

    Unfortunately his is possible because there are different drivers and stacks of driver for the printer and the component the same multifunction device installed on the client computer scanner. In a case when the right printer driver is installed and available from the scanner driver may be missing or may be incompatible with Windows Fax and Scan requires the parser must be WIA 2.0 compatible, a TWAIN compatible scanner only for example will not work with this app).

  • Has anyone seen a fax USB modem that works with Windows Fax and Scan?

    So far I'm 0 for 2.  PC Fax modems seem to be a lost art.  A few months ago, I tried a USB fax modem and tested the receipt of the fax.  The modem answers the phone, the fax sender starts the transmission and... nothing happens.  Eventually, the sender times out with an error.   Same computer, same Windows Fax and Scan software, with an old modem connected to a serial port, all works well.  Modem manufacturer was not able to help.

    And now the same problem with another PC, the modem is different, different situation.  This time I don't have an easy fallback to a serial port.

    And that leads to my question - no matter that matter where in fact seen a fax-modem USB in the field send and receive faxes using Windows Fax and Scan on Windows 7, and if yes, what was the make and model?

    Thank you

    Hello Greg,.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    You can view the reviews of the product in the manufacturer's Web site and see if that helps.

    Also for the Windows Fax and Scan, when your PC or computer would be equipped with a fax modem (or connected to a fax server), it can send and receive documents such as a standalone device. Windows Fax and Scan even includes a handy tool for the design of custom cover pages.

  • Problem with Windows Fax and Scan does not connect to the Internal Modem

    Just got a new Acer Aspire 5542-5416 computer laptop with Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium, 4 GB of Ram and a 320 GB hard drive. It has a 56 k modem integrated fax of like the old days, but I can't make it work. The laptop did not come with the Windows CD.

    If I open the program Windows Fax and Scan, it is not able to connect to the modem. Basically, if I click on tools > fax accounts > Add..., I get a box with 2 choices: to connect to a fax modem or connect to a fax on my network server. When I want to connect a fax modem I get a message that says: an error has occurred. Please, try the operation again later or contact your administrator. It allows me to do this then just clock OK and them I'm right where I started.

    While in Windows Fax and Scan, if I click on tools > fax settings... nothing happens. No menu settings or anything ever appears. Quite simply, the program does nothing. If I try tools > Fax Status Monitor... I get a box that says entrance exam status, ready to receive a fax. It has a blue progress bar as something takes over, but it gets about 1/100 to and never goes further or ends. There is no box, but there are 3 buttons: view details, answer call or cancel. If I hit details, I get an empty list. If I click on answer call I get an error that says that the fax service is not available.

    If I try tools > Options, general tab has only a single option box is checked: play a sound when come it to new messages. If I try to print a Word or PDF file to a fax using Fax in the printer list, I get the same box with 2 choices: to connect to a fax modem or connect to a fax on my network server, but I get the same error message: an error has occurred. Please, try the operation again later or contact your administrator.

    I've searched the Internet high and low for a solution but no luck. There is a lot of discussion about this problem, but none of the solutions work for me. If I go to Device Manager, the modem is working properly and if I click on the Modem query on the Diagnostics tab, it seems to be able to communicate with the modem very well. I tried to roll back the driver and updated again and still no luck, same problem. If I go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Fax\Accounts in the registry, there is no subkeys under the folder accounts I can delete.

    Has anyone else had a similar problem? Is there any solution for this? I did a Windows Update last night and has not yet solve it. Thank you.

    Sorry about that.

  • Windows Fax and Scan - what the appropriate use for the concurrent users to save to the network program?

    I'll try to keep this simple - as I already asked this on other forums without the answer. My environment - Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 32-bit client machines. A computer needs to scan patient documents to a network shared by a group of users folder. There will be many people who use this computer even through all day (several shifts - environment 24 hours/7 days).  This is why I need multiple profiles from windows to all save the scan to the SAME network location.

    Currently I am trying to achieve with Windows Fax and Scan and using the ' Scan 'option under 'tools' routing. "  There is a check box (once in this option) for "network location".  I am using this option, but its does not work and that's the whole problem. Its supposed to AUTOMATICALLY record each scan to the specified network location, but it does no such thing. The scan is not registered at all in fact it is just in the interface user of Windows Fax and Scan... double you click it, and then it shows you the image.

    Some information note for helping people answer this question (and any help is appreciated):

    (1) * YES * the network folder, I am trying to record is a valid network folder and * IS * accessible via my network of different devices

    (2) * YES * the user of this journal on the computer with the scanner * ALL * read/write to have rights to this location of the network folder

    (3) * file YES and printing sharing is already active on clients

    If you please if someone either knows how to solve this problem, or at this stage if you can even suggest a different (cheaper the better) application that will scan to a network location please let me know.

    One might think to a disabled feature labeled as "scan routing" and then a field for "network location", it would be simple as plugging in the network folder and checking a box - apparently it isn't.

    Thank you.

    Original title: fax and scan Windows

    Why bother to preload a tower PC with windows fax and analyze if the PC has a modem and in fact does not even a wireless receiver.  When an ordinary user like me go buy the adapter wireless and go buy the fax modem, it's like going to a car dealer and make them ask ' you want this car with tires and wheels, or even that it is? »


    So when you go to Best Buy and Staples to find a fax modem for this PC HP who did not, and what they have is a Zoom modem that works work, WHAT ARE SUPPOSES to DO THEN?

  • Questions Windows Fax and Scan

    Hi all

    After modernizing our systems to small business from Windows XP to Windows 7 x 64, we were unable to use the toolkit provided with our printers Canon MF Fax/scanning, we converted in Windows Fax and Scan

    So far, it's working fine, but I have three questions that I can't find answers to...

    1. when a received fax is deleted, where is he?  I can't to the trash, and sometimes, I delete a fax by chance and here to recover, but can't find it

    2 can we somehow add a comment/topic to faxes received to allow the best management of incoming messages?     Would be really nice if the Inbox can be sorted by sender or subject

    3. can you inbox / outbox backed up/archived/export made?
