To select the ScanDirect source scanner or device

ScanDirect can scan an item from any TWAIN or WIA scanner or device.

This makes it possible to use your scanner or digital camera with ScanDirect and send the item to PaperPort or to any program on the ScanDirect Send To bar.

To select the source scanner or device:

  1. In the ScanDirect panel, right-click the PaperPort scan scandir Selecting the source scanner or device Scan button.

    The Scanner Setup Wizard appears and lists all imaging devices installed on your computer.

  2. Select the device you want to use, and then click Next.

  3. The wizard reports whether the chosen scanner model already has settings in the scanner database. If it does, you do not need to test it. If it does not, you should test it. Click on Next.

  4. If you chose not to test, click Finish. If you chose testing, click Next to have the scanner connection tested. If the connection is in order, you see a menu of further tests. Choose which testing steps you want to run. The Basic test scan is recommended.

  5. When all the requested tests have been completed successfully, the Scanner Wizard reports and invites you to click on Finish.

  6. Your device is now set to scan.
