Fax From Scanner Yields Black Image


Set up: epson 500 perfection photo scanner, win 7 ultimate 64, 8 g ram  intel i860/intel dp 55kg motherboard. I just transferred the scanner from my vista ultimate setup where it worked in all modes.
Under win 7 all modes work except when i use the file-new-fax from scanner mode. The scanner tif image is just a black page. If i use the new scan menu, the tif image is perfect. Under the new scan mode jpg's are fine. I can send a fax by using the new scan menu, and then the forward as fax menu.
I reviewed all settings from my vista setup but cannot find a key to what setup is different.

System Image Reports Two Boot Drives To Image

I have a sata (boot drive) and an ide drive in my win 7 pro 64 bit machine. Is there any way to remove the old boot partition on my ide from the list of drives to image w/ sys image? I can understand the c: part (sata/boot) and the "system reserved" but i don't want to image the d: part (1st part on old ide xp pro boot drive that has 84gb on it that i don't want to bkup). Funny thing is that the ide drive doesn't even show up on the boot sequence in bios. I really don't want to reformat in case something happens to my new sys i can still run xp on my old one (i lost my xp install disk).

I just want to leave it out of the sys image list. Theres no way to remove it from the list without reformatting the d: part. (Old boot drive)? Can i possibly make the d: part. Non bootable without running the xp installation on it and make it bootable again later?Maybeny help removing it from the list would be greatly appreciated!

Fax Sending Problem

I have been trying to send a fax for a long time now and it constantly says that the call had not been answered. I have looked over everything i could find on the internet and it does not seem that i am doing anything wrong. I have uninstalled / reinstalled windows fax and scan a couple of times but it seems to do no good. I still get the same message. One thing i noticed when reading the forums is that if i were to uninstall windows fax and scan and i were to reinstall it again , trying to send a fax for the first time, the fax wizard would pop up and lead me through the setup of the fax.

This wizard never comes up after the very first time that i set it up. I dont think i did anything wrong during the fax setup. The only thing that i entered was my area code. When i try to send a fax i hear the dialing tone and the fax tone for quite some time but in the end i get the same problem that i have described.

Fax And Scan Full Setup

Windows 7 fax and scan. I am still having trouble with windows fax and scan. When i had windows xp i used windows fax console as the fax software. I simply scanned the fax message into a word document and used the fax wizard to send off the fax. I wish to do a similar thing in windows 7 fax and scan but i always end up with attachments which i do not understand.

Is this attachment sequence the new thing - i am certainly not used to it? I am also unable to send any fax though the fax settings are correct. When i try to send a fax reference is made to a fax server. I have set up the program to be used with an external fax modem - a fax server should not be involved. The fax printer present in the printers folder in windows xp is missing in windows 7.
Do i need this ?

Automatically Answer Certain Fax Numbers

I setup my laptop to send/receive faxes just for those times where i might need to send a fax and i don't have time to run anywhere. However at the moment my fax number along with my home phone number are exactly the same, what i would like to do is to have contacts with fax numbers and be able to select which ones to automatically answer if they call. This way i don't have to worry about certain faxes from people and also not have issues if someone calls to talk to me and for it to go to the answering machine.

I know this isn't the ideal situation but i don't want to get a separate line just for 1 or 2 faxes every month.

Fax Stopped Working For Sending And Receiving

This is a new higher end windows 7 intel based i5 computer with 8gb of memory. I have been using the windows fax and scan successfully before. When i went to receive a fax that area was grayed out. I lost all of my history of previous faxes. The name with fax number directory was still there. I manually copied the few listings. I also found i could not send faxes. It seems that in the print directory the print to fax name looks different. But i can't be sure. It now says " fax, microsoft shared fax driver" .

I confirmed that the fax is operational and the wires are connected properly by going online via a dial up network. So, i would think it's in the fax program software.

I tried to remove and reinstall the program, but in the control panel under remove programs i couldn't find it. Also, i'm not sure where to get the program to reinstall. I do have the windows 7 ultimate disk available. I tried going to "tools", then "fax settings". The blue circle circled and the window said, "not responding". Then it stopped. In other words, i cannot access the settings.

Dell Photo 966 Aio Can't Fax

I have a dell studio 15 notebook, with windows 7 home premium, 64x. Printer is a dell photo 966aio. The fax option for printer should show up as a 2nd device but it doesn't show up so i can't fax. Dell told me there was something wrong with this printer (although it works with the other 2 dells we have) and i ordered a different model aio. Same thing happened with that- no option for a fax printer - sent printer back after spending 7 hours on the phone with a dell tech. Any suggestions? I've removed and reinstalled the printer several times but no fax option shows up.

System Image Recovery Can't Find System Image

I am trying to restore a backup system image to my repaired pc. It is wiped clean. I have the "repair disc windows 7 64 bit" that i created in windows 7. Using windows 7 backup i have a system image backup on an external wd essentials 1tb usb hard drive. I insert the repair disc and start the system. Get to system recovery options. I have the external hard disk with the system backup image connected. Select system image recovery option. Says "windows cannot find a system image on this computer. Attach the backup hard disk or insert the final dvd from a backup set and click retry. Alternatively, close this dialog for more options.

Retry gives me the same message. Tried starting with drive attached, not attached, same result. Click cancel. Next option selected is "select a system image. " No system image listed. Hit refresh, still nothing. Top of screen says "click advanced to add a network location or install a driver for a backup device if it does not show up in the list below. "  I click on the advanced tab.

Option to "search for a system image on the network" or "install a driver. " I select install a driver. Find the right driver for the wd essential hard drive (disk.sys and partmgr.sys) and when i click on them i get "the specified location does not contain information about your hardware. "  Click ok. Can't find how to load these drivers i am being asked for. Funny thing is that on the screen where i search for driver i can see the wd essential hard drive connected to the system. I can also see the system image files but when i click on them i get the same error message, "the specified location does not contain information about your hardware. "

Saving Scan File As Date And Time Using Win 7 Fax And Scan

A friend has a brother 8840d all-in-one printer. He used to be able to use the scan function on the printer and send the scan in .jpg to the computer running xp with a unique name that had the date and time embedded in the name ie: 111709214200001.jpg.
 
He doesn't have the windows 7 driver to use the scan function as above but the windows 7 fax and scan viewer will let him scan. Question: is there a way to default win7 fax and scan to save a scan with a name similar to above that would have the date incorporated? I now saves it as img01, img02. I am still running xp so i don't have the ability to check.

1815dn Scanner Not Working

We have installed windows 7 pro to our dell latitude d820
Processor:  intel t2300 1. 66ghz
Ram:  1gb
32-bit os

We have an all-in-one printer - 1815dn - that we have used before the os upgrade. Previously, we used this printer as our network scanner. Since the os upgrade, the printer will not scan over the network, nor if we connect the laptop directly to it. Its as if the scanning option/software doesn't exist, or at least is not recognized at all by win 7. Anyone know of a patch/upgrade/work around to get the scanner back as a network scanner?

Firewall Blocks Scanner

Spend several minutes with brother (model mfc-490cw). It's a 3 in 1. It is set perfectly. My computer is shown on the list were to send the scan to, but the connection doesn't go through. Able to scan from my computer to printer. If i disabled firewall, works. Try to add brother programs, don't find the right to add obviously (and the tech either). Was working just fine with vista! For now, only have config. Problems with windows 7. I don't think that removing my firewalls is the right answer.

Dell 1815dn Scanner Problem

I had windows xpand the dell network scan program on my laptop, and had no problems. My company then installed windows 7 on my laptop, and the dell network scan program back on. The program starts up fine, but it doesn't find any scanners.

I've gone and searched for updates, fixes/patches, but nothing.

Canon Mf4150 Scanner Functions Not Working

Windows 7 does not "see" the scanner functions on my canon mf4150 multi-function printer/scanner/fax. I've already updated drivers on the new pc. Checked services are enabled. Verified all functions of the canon mf 4150 are working properly using my old pc with the same software (paperport 12. 0). Checked registry entries for latent issues. There must be a resource conflict somewhere, but i cannot find it. Anyone have useful suggestions?

Minolta Film Scsi Scanner Problem

I have a minolta film scsi scanner, dimage scan dual, and had it working in xp. The only way i could get it working in xp was to load the program as admin/safe mode. Do you have any suggestions as to how i should try and install this in windows 7? Minolta has not supported photographic products in many years. When i first installed it in xp it didn't work. Found a note which informed me that the only way to get it working in xp was in admin (safe) mode.

It was successful. Now i would like to try it on 7 but with the xp installation steps, might there be a suggestion as ti installing it on 7?

Canoscan D2400u Canon Scanner Does Not Support

I cannot get my trusted old scanner to work. (Canoscan d2400u), no updated drivers at canon's website and 'vuescan' does not support either. Would the ultimates virtual xp allow the old drivers to operate my scanner (given that it only responds to 32 bit xp) or do i have to throw away a perfectly good piece of machinery? Is windows 7 going to cause an upsurge in landfill with all this redundant hardware?
