Why does scanning take so long?
Try the following:
- Try scanning your original at a lower resolution setting to speed up scanning.
- Computers with USB 2.0 (high speed) ports can transfer data faster than those with USB 1.1 or SCSI ports. Therefore, the scanning time may be shorter if you use a computer with a USB 2.0 port. If you are using a USB 2.0 port with your scanner, make sure it meets the System Requirements.
- If you are scanning a full page, but only need part of it, switch to Home, Office, or Professional mode. Then use normal preview and create marques on the area you want to scan.
