Scanner problems

I just installed an old Dell MFP I had to use on my home computer, mostly to scan and print docs. I had used it lots before as a networked device at my office but I recently replaced it. It prints just fine but when I try to scan an image I get triple inmages (see attached). I tried updating the drivers and reinstalling the software but no luck. When I use the Windows XP scan utility it works just fine, but I find that app a be tedious. Any suggestions? Example of attempted scan

It seems to me the scanner software either has a setting designed to do that or it does not recognize a break in the paper which causes it to do that. Check the options or try to put a dark background paper at the end of the sanned area to see if it causes it to only scan once.

this is a scanner driver issue, most likely it's incompatable with 32 bit scanning, set it to 24 bit color and it should resolve itself.

It's got the wrong number of bits in the driver, you can download and reinstall the scanner software from dell, your best bet.
