====================================================================
General Notes:
====================================================================
1. Important
--------------------------------------------------------------------

  - Some USB hubs may experience problems with MP Drivers. If this
    happens, connect the device directly to the USB port on the PC,
    or change the USB port that the device is connected to.

  - When you connect the device to your PC, the drive that relates
    to the Card Reader may not appear in Windows Explorer.
    This behavior can occur if you map a network drive to the next
    available drive letter after the local volumes and CD-ROM drives
    have been assigned drive letters. If you experience this problem,
    you should assign the network drive to any other drive letters
    and reboot your PC.

  - When working with very large files, Windows may run low on
    virtual memory and not function properly. In this case, please
    refer to your Windows documentation on how to increase your
    virtual memory setting.

  - For details on functions related to Windows XP Professional x64
    Edition, see the corresponding user's manual.

  - For information on application software that can be used on
    Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, contact the corresponding 
    manufacturer.

2. Printing
--------------------------------------------------------------------

  - With certain applications, the [Copies] setting is non-effective
    when setting is attempted from the printer driver. In such cases,
    specify the setting in the applications' [Print] dialog box.

  - If the selected [Language] in the [About] dialog box does not
    match the operating system interface language, the driver screen
    may not be displayed properly.

  - Do not change the [Advanced] tab items of the printer properties.
    If you change any of the items, you will not be able use the
    following functions correctly.
    Also, if [Output to File] is selected in the [Print] dialog box of
    the application software and with applications that prohibit EMF
    spooling, such as Adobe PhotoShop LE and MS Photo Editor,
    the following functions will not operate.
    - [Preview before printing] on the [Main] tab
    - [Reduce spool data size] in the [Print Options] dialog box
    - [Page Layout Printing], [Poster Printing], [Booklet Printing],
      [Duplex Printing], [Print from Last Page], and [Collate] on
      the [Page Setup] tab

  - Since the resolution in the preview display differs from the
    printing resolution, text and lines in the preview display may
    appear different from the actual print result.

  - In some applications, the printing is divided into multiple
    jobs. To prohibit printing, delete all divided jobs.

  - If you use the Bluetooth option and perform one of the actions
    listed below, the print job may not end and "Printing" may remain
    displayed on the status monitor even after printing ends and the
    printout is ejected. If this happens, either click the [Cancel
    Printing] button on the Status Monitor or cancel that print job
    from the print job queue of the printer.
    - If you move the printer during printing to a location where
      radio waves cannot reach or if the radio wave status becomes
      poor
    - If you turn off the printer

  - If you are using a Bluetooth printer and you cancel printing
    after a printer error occurs, you may not be able to execute
    subsequent printing operations. If this happens, turn off the
    printer and turn it back on again.

  - If you are using Bluetooth, you cannot use the operation panel
    on the printer while the status monitor is displayed from 
    [View Printer Status...] on the [Maintenance] tab.

3. Scanning
--------------------------------------------------------------------

  - Only run one application at a time that is actively linked to
    ScanGear. Do not open more than one application that is actively
    linked to ScanGear. Also, do not open ScanGear more than once to
    acquire an image in the same application.

  - When scanning large images at high resolutions, the progress bar
    may stop at 0% or your computer may stop responding, depending
    on the size of the file and the limitations of the applications
    being used. If this happens, cancel the action (for example by
    clicking the progress bar's [Cancel] button), and then increase
    the virtual memory available and perform the scan again.
    Selecting smaller area at lower resolutions may also resolve
    the problem.
    Also, you can scan and save the image from the MP Navigator
    and import resulting file into your application.

  - When you preview or scan an image with a relatively uniform
    background, the Auto Tone function may change its coloring.
    If this occurs, reset the Auto Tone.

  - After installing the on-screen manual from the CD-ROM supplied
    with this machine, you can display the manual by clicking 
    the [?] button on the ScanGear screen. Select only the 
    on-screen manual on the installation screen and install it.

  - For information on how to use ScanGear, refer to the
    on-screen manual.
