Hi mvalencia2003,

The link you posted is for the ScanSnap series, which is completely different from the fi series. The ScanSnap software does not work on the fi series and vice versa. The ScanSnap series does not have any ISIS or TWAIN drivers. The fi series does.

For your fi-6130z, the software download page is here:

Notice that the ScandAll PRO is an update only. You need the original ScandAll PRO (from the media that came with the scanner) before you can apply the update. The Fujitsu site does not have the full ScandAll PRO software available for download — just the update. Of course, because the scanner has ISIS and TWAIN drivers, most imaging/scanning software will work with it, as those are widely supported industry standards.

What software are you scanning with now? Regards, Joe

I strongly advise against downloading ScandAll PRO from any third-party site. You should contact Fujitsu technical support. They will likely be very cooperative and send you the ScandAll PRO software if you give them the serial number of your fi-6130Z. Contact methods:

As I mentioned earlier, there's lots of other software that will scan via the ISIS and/or TWAIN drivers. What software are you scanning with now? Regards, Joe

Here's an easy way to scan to PDF. IrfanView is excellent (free!) imaging software that I've been using for many years:

I recommend the Brothersoft link to download IrfanView:

This will download a single install file called <iview437_setup.exe> with no adware and no junk!

And the Brothersoft link for the PlugIns, which are required for PDF support:

This will download a single install file called <irfanview_plugins_437_setup.exe> with no adware and no junk!

Install IrfanView first, then install the PlugIns.

When you run IrfanView, click the File menu and pick [Select Scan/TWAIN Source...]. You should see TWAIN and/or and WIA drivers for your fi-6130Z. Here's what mine looks like:

IrfanView Select SourceAfter selecting the TWAIN or WIA driver (try both), click the File menu and pick [Acquire/Batch scanning...]. After scanning, click the File menu, then [Save as...], and pick a file type of PDF.

If you don't see TWAIN and/or WIA drivers in the Select Source list, then your fi-6130Z drivers are not installed properly. In this case, download the TWAIN driver from the Fujitsu site:

You could also download the ISIS driver from the Fujitsu site:

IrfanView does not support ISIS, but other software does, so it's a good idea to install it. Regards, Joe
