Scanning to e-mail is supported by any e-mail program that supports the Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) protocol. Many versions of popular e-mail programs seem to be MAPI-compliant. See the support information for your e-mail program to determine whether or not it is MAPI-compliant.
Scan to a memory card
This feature allows you to scan a document and save it to an inserted memory card.
You can scan from both the ADF and flatbed. The device will look for the presence of paper in the ADF. If there is paper, then the ADF is used. Otherwise the flatbed is scanned. Only single-page scanning is supported from the flatbed.
The following scan settings used are for a default 300dpi scan:
Image File Details
The scanned file is saved as a .jpg image. A separate file is created for each page scanned.
Scanned images are saved to a directory named "HP<model number>" at the root level of the memory card.
The first scanned file is named HP0001.jpg. Each subsequent file name is incremented by one.
The date and time linked to the newly created file will match the date and time on the device when the scan occurred. Therefore, the date and time must be set correctly in order for the date and time of the file to be correct.
If the scan fails for any reason (ADF jam, cancel, etc…) the partial file is removed from the memory card. However, if the memory card is removed while writing, a partial file may still exist on the card.
If the paper jams in the ADF, or the paper is mispicked in the ADF, or the ADF door is opened while scanning, then the scan to card is stopped. The partial file is removed from the memory card. All scanned pages that were previously scanned remain on the memory card.
If the user presses cancel while scanning to card, then the scan is stopped, and the partial file removed. All scanned pages that were previously scanned remain on the memory card.
Memory card failures
If the memory card is read-only, then the device is unable to scan to it. An error message is displayed when trying to scan to the card. Un-lock the card in order to scan to it.
If the memory card is removed while scanning to it, then the scan is stopped. A partial file may still exist on the memory card.
If the memory card is corrupt, then the scan is stopped, and an appropriate error message is displayed. Insert a valid memory card to continue scanning.
If the memory card is full, then the scan is stopped and an appropriate error message is displayed. Delete files on the memory card or use a different card with sufficient available space to continue scanning.
If the photo slots have been disabled an appropriate error message is displayed. Enable the photo slots to continue scanning.
If there is no card inserted when trying to scan then an appropriate error message is displayed. Insert a memory card to continue scanning.
Scan from the HP Scanning software
