How can I speed up scanning?

    Try the following:
    • Use a USB 2.0 port. Computers with USB 2.0 (high speed) ports can scan faster than those with USB 1.1 ports.
    • If you're using a USB 2.0 port, make sure it meets the System Requirements.
    • Try scanning your original at a lower Resolution setting to speed up scanning. See Selecting the Scan Resolution.
    Note: If you are scanning film or slides, or using the scanner's Digital ICE feature, scanning takes longer than usual.
