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.


  - With certain applications, on Windows 98 or Me, that monitor the
    removable disks on the device, the PC performance may get slow,
    or printing/scanning may not be performed correctly. Closing
    such applications will solve the problems.

  - 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.

2. Printing (Windows 98/Me)
--------------------------------------------------------------------

  - To enable the BJ Status Monitor, enable bi-directional
    communication in Windows.
    From the [Start] menu, click [Settings], then select [Printers]
    to open the Printer Properties dialog box. Go to the [Details]
    tab and click the [Spool Settings...] button, then select
    [Enable bi-directional support for this printer].

  - The BJ Status Monitor cannot be used, when the printer is used
    as a network printer.

  - If you exit Windows while the printer is printing a file, the
    job information may not be updated. In this case, the same job
    will be activated again the next time you run Windows.

3. Printing (Windows 2000/XP)
--------------------------------------------------------------------

  - 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.

  - With certain applications, if you attempt multiple-copy printing
    of a document with [Collate] checked on the printer driver's
    [Page Setup] tab or in the application's [Print] dialog box,
    printing will not be done correctly. To work around this,
    uncheck [Collate] before printing.

  - With certain applications, printing may not be done properly if
    [Print Type] or [Halftoning] is set to [Auto]. In this case,
    start the [Print Advisor] on the [Main] tab and be sure to
    select [Print a top-quality photo] or [Print tables and charts].
    Alternatively, set [Print Quality] on the [Main] tab to [Custom]
    and select a setting other than [Auto] for [Halftoning]. Next
    set [Color Adjustment] to [Manual] and select a setting other
    than [Auto] for [Print Type].

  - When printing graduated or graphics-intensive print data,
    sometimes print data may not be printed. This occurs when there
    is not enough free space on your hard disk to temporarily store
    the data. To remedy this, make sure there is 40-50 MB of free
    space on the drive where Windows XP or Windows 2000 is
    installed. Alternatively, set the spool folder on the disk with
    sufficient space. To change the location of the spool folder,
    follow the steps below.
    1. From the [Start] menu, select [Settings], and then click 
       [Printers].
    2. Select [Server Properties] from the [File] menu.
    3. Click [Advanced] tab, change the drive name of [Spool Folder],
       and then click [OK].

  - If, during printing, you cancel the print job from the Printer's
    folder, there will be a delay before printing actually stops.

  - In some cases, printing will fail if there isn't enough virtual
    memory available. You can remedy this by increasing the size of
    the paging file. To do this, open the [System Properties] dialog
    box by double-clicking [System] in the Control Panel or
    right-clicking [My Computer] and choosing [Properties]. Then
    click the [Advanced] tab, click [Performance Options...], click
    [Change...], specify the new paging file size, click [Set], and
    click [OK].

  - Do not change the [Print Processor] setting on the [Advanced]
    tab in the Printer Properties dialog box. If you change the
    setting, the following functions cannot be used:
    - [Page Layout Printing], [Poster Printing], [Booklet Printing],
      and [Duplex Printing] (manually) on the [Page Setup] tab
    - All functions of the [Stamp/Background] tab
    - [Preview before printing] on the [Main] tab

  - The following functions cannot be used if you uncheck [Enable 
    advanced printing features] on the [Advanced] tab in the Printer
    Properties dialog box:
    - [Page Layout Printing], [Poster Printing], [Booklet Printing],
      [Duplex Printing] (manually), [Reverse Order], and [Collate]
      on the [Page Setup] tab
    - All functions of the [Stamp/Background] tab
    - [Preview before printing] on the [Main] tab
    - [Reduce spool data size] in the [Print Options] dialog box

  - The following functions cannot be used when you are using an
    application that does not allow EMF spooling (for example, 
    Adobe PhotoShop LE and MS Photo Editor):
    - [Page Layout Printing], [Poster Printing], [Booklet Printing],
      [Duplex Printing] (manually), [Reverse Order], and [Collate]
      on the [Page Setup] tab
    - All functions of the [Stamp/Background] tab
    - [Preview before printing] on the [Main] tab

  - The following functions cannot be used if you check [Print to
    file] in your application's [Print] dialog box:
    - [Page Layout Printing], [Poster Printing], [Booklet Printing],
      [Duplex Printing], [Reverse Order], and [Collate] on the [Page
      Setup] tab
    - All functions of the [Stamp/Background] tab
    - [Preview before printing] on the [Main] tab

  - With some applications, when printing with [Page Layout
     Printing] on the [Page Setup] tab set to [2-up Printing] or
     greater, certain page images may get cropped. If this happens,
     use the application to adjust the layout of the affected pages.

  - When carrying out poster printing or stamp/background printing,
    the displayed number of pages of the document in the print queue
    is greater than that of the actual document.

  - The colors in the screen display of the application software may
    be different from the colors in the preview display.

  - The colors in the preview display may be different from the
    colors in the print result.

  - 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. In this case the preview display can only display the job
    being printed, and the display may differ from the display
    intended by the user.

  - The preview display cannot be used in the following cases:
    - During printing when the printer icon is right-clicked and
      [Use Printer Offline] is selected
    - During printing outside the specified times when [Available
      from] is set on the [Advanced] tab in the Printer Properties
      dialog box

  - When using a network printer, if the client's BJ Status Monitor
    is activated, a command is sent to the printer to obtain its
    status. If you have checked [Notify when remote documents are
    printed] on the [Advanced] tab of the print server's [Server
    Properties] dialog box, a print completion notification message
    is displayed on the client in response to each command. To stop
    these messages appearing, uncheck [Notify when remote documents
    are printed] on the [Advanced] tab of the print server's [Server
    Properties] dialog box, then restart the print server to make
    the setting effective.

  - If you exit Windows while the printer is printing a file, the
    job information may not be updated. In this case, the same job
    will be activated again the next time you run Windows.

  - When using a Windows 2000 or XP system logged on to a Workgroup
    instead of a Domain as a Server PC to share the printer,
    printing from a Client PC may not work correctly. If you
    experience this problem, you should either log on to a Domain,
    or setup an account on the Server PC for each user in the
    Workgroup that will print from a Client PC.

4. Scanning
--------------------------------------------------------------------

  - Make sure that you have adequate disk space available when
    scanning large documents at high resolutions. For instance,
    scanning a full page color document at 600 dpi requires a
    minimum of 300MB of free disk space.

  - 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.

  - With Windows 2000 or XP, the TWAIN data source may not open
    correctly from time to time when the system file is in the NTFS
    format. For security reasons, the TWAIN module cannot be written
    to the "winnt" directory. For details, contact your system
    administrator.

  - Always close the ScanGear main window before you exit the parent
    application program.

  - Certain personal computers (including laptops) may not restart
    correctly from standby mode when the device is attached.
    If this occurs, please reboot the computer.

  - The Scan key on the device may not operate after you install
    the driver. In this case, restart the system.

  - 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.

====================================================================
Application Notes:
====================================================================
1. Printing (Windows 98/Me)
--------------------------------------------------------------------

  - Microsoft Word 95 / 97 / 2000 / 2002 (Microsoft Corp.)
    When using Microsoft Word, documents designated for
    enlargement/reduction printing may not be enlarged or reduced
    as specified.
    To use the enlargement/reduction function, first select [Start]
    - [Settings] - [Printers], and right-click on the name of the
    printer you use. Then select [Set as Default], and specify the
    paper size in the Properties - [Page Setup] tab.
    Now you are ready to start the application.
    If you are not using the enlargement/reduction function, or if
    you are printing after clicking on the [Close] button to close
    the Print dialog box, the printer prints using the specified
    paper size.

  - CorelDRAW (Corel Corporation)
    In some cases printer driver settings may not be valid. If this
    should occur, save the printing data, and close CorelDRAW.
    Then select [Start] - [Settings] - [Printers], right-click on
    the name of the printer you use. Then select Properties. Now
    enter the printer driver settings, start CorelDRAW again and
    print the document.

  - Some software packages may cancel enlargement/reduction settings
    when the printer Properties window is closed and reopened.
    Enlargement/reduction ratios are set in terms of the ratio
    between the specified document size and the printer paper size.
    If this happens, you can print at the proper enlargement/
    reduction ratio by printing immediately after setting the
    enlargement/reduction ratio.

  - When printing using the page layout function, some applications
    may move data from one page onto the next.

2. Printing (Windows 2000/XP)
--------------------------------------------------------------------

  - Microsoft Word/Microsoft Corporation
    If you specify a value greater than one for the [Pages per sheet]
    setting in Word's [Print] dialog box, do not use [Page Layout
    Printing] setting on the driver's [Page Setup] tab.
    If you specify values greater than one for both settings,
    printing will not be done correctly. When you want to print more
    than one page per sheet, use one setting or the other to specify
    it.

  - Microsoft Word/Microsoft Corporation
    When using the [Scale to paper size] setting in the [Print]
    dialog box, do not use [Scaled Printing] setting on the printer
    driver's [Page Setup] tab. If used, Word's [Scale to paper size]
    setting will be overridden by the printer driver's [Printer
    Paper Size] setting on the [Page Setup] tab when scaling to fit.

  - Microsoft Word/Microsoft Corporation
    When Word's [Allow A4/Letter paper resizing] feature is enabled,
    if [Orientation] in Word's [Page Setup] dialog box is set to
    [Portrait] and the driver's [Orientation] setting is specified
    as [Landscape], printing is not done correctly. To avoid this,
    disable [Allow A4/Letter paper resizing] before printing. To
    access this feature, open the [Options] dialog box from Word's
    [Tools] menu and click the [Print] tab.

  - Microsoft Word/Microsoft Corporation
    When changing [Paper size] and [Orientation], do it using Word's
    settings, not the printer driver's.

  - Microsoft Word/Microsoft Corporation
    When selecting [Scaled Printing], [Fit-to-Page Printing] or
    [Page Layout Printing]in the [Printing Type] on the [Page Setup]
    tab, do this:

    1. Open Word's [Print] dialog box.
    2. Open the printer driver setup window and on the [Page Setup]
       tab select [Printing Type] and click [OK].
    3. Without starting printing, close the [Print] dialog box.
    4. Open Word's [Print] dialog box again.
    5. Open the printer driver setup window and click [OK] again.
    6. Start printing.

  - Microsoft Excel 2002/Microsoft Corporation
    If the "Allow A4 and letter paper sizes to be changed" setting
    is enabled in Excel 2002 and the "Paper Size" that was set on
    the "Page Setup" tab of the Printer Properties screen differs
    from the paper size that was set in Excel (one is set to A4 and
    the other to Letter), the data is printed according to the
    Printer Properties paper size.
    If a problem occurs, match the Printer Properties paper size to
    the paper size that was set in Excel. Alternatively, select
    [Options] from the [Tools] menu of Excel, clear the "Allow A4 and
    letter paper sizes to be changed" setting on the "International"
    tab, and then print the data.

  - Lotus Organizer 2.1/97/Lotus Corporation
    Lotus Organizer will print in color even though monochrome
    printing has been selected. To stop this, check [Grayscale
    Printing] in the printer driver.

  - Photoshop/Adobe Systems Inc.
    Printing may not be done if you don't have system administrator
    privileges. Log on with system administrator privileges to print.

  - Lotus Notes/Lotus Corporation
    The system can lock up with certain print jobs. Make sure that
    in Notes' [Page Layout] settings you specify top and bottom
    margins of 0.9 in. or 1.1 in.

  - Microsoft Outlook/Microsoft Corporation
    If you cancel printing from the application, the next print job
    will crash. On the Printer Properties' [Advanced] tab, select
    spooling for the print document.

  - CorelDraw 8/Corel Corporation
    There are instances where problems arise if you try to open the
    printer driver setup window from CorelDraw 8.0. For instance, a
    crash may occur or characters may be corrupted. To get round
    this, open the printer driver setup window from the [Printers]
    folder, specify the settings you want, then print from the
    application.
    This problem does not occur with CorelDraw 9.0.

  - Illustrator/Adobe Systems Inc.
    If Bitmap Printing takes effect, printing may take time or some
    data may not be printed. Print after clearing the [Bitmap
    Printing] check box in the [Print] dialog box.

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

  - Some applications may close ScanGear automatically after
    scanning.

  - Some application programs may hide the TWAIN user interface.
    In this case, refer to the application programer's manual to
    find out the required setting changes to show the TWAIN user
    interface.

  - When scanning full page images into a Microsoft Office
    application (such as Word, PowerPoint or Excel), it is
    recommended that you use the Custom Insert command in the Insert
    Picture from Scanner or Camera dialog box. The image may
    otherwise not be scanned correctly.

  - Some applications, such as Microsoft Word 2000, Excel 2000 and
    PowerPoint 2000, will not allow scanning of multi-page
    documents.
    These applications will only accept the first page scanned.
    In this case, please scan each page individually.

  - Images imported from Corel WordPerfect 10 may not be imported
    correctly. If this happens increase the virtual memory available
    and scan the image again. This should solve the problem.

4. Faxing
--------------------------------------------------------------------

  - Microsoft Excel XP may not always work correctly when sending a
    document as a fax using the MP Fax driver and with the option
    Allow A4/Letter Paper Resizing ([Tools] - [Options] -
    [International tab]) enabled in Microsoft Excel XP. Disable
    (uncheck) the option Allow A4/Letter Paper Resizing in Excel XP,
    and the document will transmit correctly.
