HP Office jet Pro 8600 multifunction

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use the above HP's own software the HP Scan - HP Office jet pro 8600 (USB) to scan documents.  
The problem is when I have more than 1 page, say 3 pages and I put it in the document feeder and scan it as a say as a jpeg file, it scans them as 3 different documents, whenever I save.  Under the Advanced Settings for Save As JPEG, the box "Create a separate file for each scanned page"  is checked, and I cannot seem to uncheck it as it is greyed out.
How do I save all the 3 pages as one jpeg file.  Thank u.

Download the driver for window 7 64 bit from HP's site, then see if the option is no longer greyed out.

did you try this :  from : http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Scanning-Faxing-and-Copying/hp-photosmart-6510-scanning/td-p/1419349
Select “Scan—Computer--Computer name—“Document to File” shortcut” from device
Click Scan button
Click Yes after 1st page scan finished
Click Scan to start 2nd page scan
Click No to finish multi-page PDF scan
Check result on PC, 2 pages were saved to one PDF file.
JPEG does not support multi-page images. The best you could do is to combine the pages into 1 image (if the scanner/software supported it) - but that is not what you want.

The best way is to scan as PDFs, as nobus suggested. You can also try scanning as TIFF, which does support multi-page images. TIFF does not compress as well as JPEG, but it does use lossless compression.

Jpeg does not allow more than 1 page to be scanned.  I used the pdf format and it worked.
