Free scanning software help...

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Hi, I have a Samsung SCX-4125F Printer/Scanner.  The software on the Samsung support page is crap as I can only scan on the flat bed scanner.  

Is there a free software out there that I can use to scan using the Document Feeder on the scanner?

Im using windows XP.

ubuntuguy--I suspect the problem may not be software, but that you need instructions.
Did you click "Download Centre" and download the manuals?
Or Online self Service?
Or Contact Us?
I would find it strange if Samsung does not provide instructions on using the Document Feeder/
Also at the bottom of the link you gave there is a download offered for Smart Thru.  I do not know what this is.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Well the problem is that the Smart Thru software only allows you to use the flat bed for scanning.  Yeah strange I know, I was looking and looking and no you cannot use the feeder.  Basically I needed something like Adobe Acrobat Professional that will allow me to create PDFs using the document feeder.  I downloaded the 30 day trial.  I'll crack afterwards... Thanks though.  

I'll give you the points since I believe that anyone that tries to help should get points.

ubuntuguy--Thanks for the points, but I feel bad the issue is not resolved.
Since I do not have a Samsung scanner, I do not know if the Document Feeder is something that comes with it.  If it does, I still think Samsung would offer help in using it.  Have you tried to contact Samsung?


No I didn't contact them... I just wanted a quick solution.  Didn't want to spend time calling them.  Thanks anyway
