Scanning is slow. What should I do?
Try the following:
- Scan your original at a lower resolution, if possible. You can change the resolution setting at any time.
Click the down arrow next to the Resolution drop-down list and select the dpi (dots per inch) setting you want to scan.
- Make sure your system meets the requirements for your operating system. If you are scanning a high-resolution image, you may need more than the minimum requirements, such as a Hi-Speed USB port. If necessary, increase your system's memory.
- If you are running virus protection or other security software, exclude the TWAIN.log files from monitoring or set the TWAIN.log files as read only (Windows). See your virus protection or security software instructions for details. The TWAIN.log file is saved in the following locations:
- Windows XP: C:\Document and Settings\(user name)\Local Settings\Temp
- Windows (other versions): C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Local\Temp
- Use a 802.11g/n network when scanning wirelessly.
- Don't place the product, router, or access point near microwaves, cordless telephones, or other sources of wireless interference.
