2. Documents
The scanner can scan documents ranging in size from business cards and checks to 11" × 17"/A3 size. The size and type of paper
that can be fed depends on the feeding method.
• Manual feeding requires feeding one document at a time while
the [Separation Off] key on the control panel is lit and the
Document Feed Tray is raised.
Acceptable Documents
The scanner can feed the following document sizes.
Size
Width: 2" to 12.01" (50.8 mm to 305 mm)
Length: 2.76" to 17.01" (70 mm to 432 mm) (without
using the Long Document Mode)
2.76" to 39.37" (70 mm to 1m) (using [ON1] in the

IMPORTANT
Paper Thickness
Continuous Feeding: 14 to 56 lb bond (52 g/m2 to
209 g/m2) (0.06 mm to 0.25 mm)
Manual Feeding: 11 lb to 64 lb bond (42 g/m2 to
255 g/m2) (0.05 mm to 0.30 mm)
A document must meet the following criteria to be scannable:
• When scanning a multipage document, pages must be
grouped together so that they have the same size, thickness,
and weight. Scanning different types of paper at one time can
cause the scanner to jam.
• Always make sure that the ink on a document is dry before
scanning it. Scanning documents with the ink still wet may soil
the rollers or scanning glass, cause lines or smudges to
appear on images, or dirty other documents.
• Always clean the rollers or scanning glass after scanning a
document written in pencil. Scanning documents with pencil
written on them may soil the rollers or scanning glass, cause
stripes to appear in images, or dirty other documents.
• When scanning a two-sided document that is printed on thin
paper, the image on the opposite side of each page may show
through. Adjust the scanning brightness from the application
program, or enable the [Prevent Bleed Through/Remove
Background] setting before scanning.
Hint
• Continuous feeding feeds document pages one after another
by the feed and retard rollers after placing a batch of
documents in the Document Feed Tray.

4. Document Feeding Methods
Two document feeding methods are available: Continuous Feeding, which feeds documents automatically from the document tray
by the pickup roller; and Manual Feeding, which requires one document at a time to be positioned manually for transport by the
feed roller, while the pickup roller is disabled.
Manual Feeding
The Separation Off key lights and the Document Feed
Tray rises so that documents can be fed manually one at a
time.
When manual feeding, you must insert each document
page far enough to be pulled in by the feed roller (because
the pickup roller is disabled).
Selecting the Document Feeding Method
Continuous Feeding is the default feeding method, but
Manual Feeding can be enabled by selecting Manual Feeding
as the Feeding Option for the ISIS/TWAIN driver, or by
pressing the Separation Off key on the control panel. A
Continuous Manual Feeding Mode is also provided as a way
to scan a batch of document pages that cannot be
automatically transported.
Continuous Feeding
With Continuous Feeding, documents loaded in the
Document Feed Tray are picked up automatically by the
pickup roller and transported by the feed roller, while the
retard roller separates each page to avoid double feeding.
Separation Off Key
IMPORTANT
Pickup Roller
• Because pages are not separated by the retard roller during
manual feeding, a paper jam will occur if multiple pages are
loaded together.
• To scan bound multi-page documents such as invoice
booklets, place the bound edge against the feed inlet and scan
using manual feeding.

6. Using Patchcode Sheets (Option)
When the optional patchcode decoder is installed, the DR-6050C/7550C/9050C supports Automatic File Separation by detecting
patchcode sheets inserted within a document, and performs batch separation.
• Patchcode sheets must be printed in their original size. The
scanner may not recognize them as patchcode sheets if they
are enlarged or reduced.
About Patchcode Sheets
Patchcode patterns are printed on the patchcode sheets used to
automatically separate files. Patchcode pattern icons are
registered in the following location when the ISIS/TWAIN
driver is installed.
■ Patchcode Pattern Function
There are two types of patchcodes, and their function
changes according to their pattern.
PATCH T
When the scanner recognizes this patchcode printed on a
patchcode sheet, it creates a separate file for the document
that comes after the patchcode sheet. The image of this
sheet can be saved or not, depending on the application’s
settings.
IMPORTANT
PATCH II
• Patchcode sheets can be used only when the application you are
using supports separating files by patchcode patterns.
• Patchcode sheets are data in PDF format. There are four types;
[PATCH II (A4)], [PATCH II (LTR)], [PATCH T (A4)], [PATCH T
(LTR)], organized according to the paper size and pattern.
• Patchcode sheets cannot be used when the MultiStream function
(See “MultiStream” on p. 1-8.) is being used by CapturePerfect
3.0.
When the scanner recognizes this patchcode printed on a
patchcode sheet, it creates a separate file starting from the
patchcode sheet. The image of this sheet is saved,
regardless of the application’s settings.
■ Printing Patchcode Sheets
Open the desired patchcode sheet file with an application
that supports CapturePerfect 3.0 or the PDF file format,
and print the page image only at its original size.
IMPORTANT
• Print (at original size) PATCH T (A4) and PATCH II (A4)
sheets on A4-size paper, or PATCH T (LTR) and PATCH II
(LTR) on LTR paper.

IMPORTANT
• Print (at original size) PATCH T (A4) and PATCH II (A4)
sheets on A4 paper, or PATCH T (LTR) and PATCH II (LTR)
on LTR paper.
• The scanner may not recognize the patchcodes if they are
enlarged or reduced.
2. Insert the patchcode sheet in front of the document
that you want to save as a separate file before
placing the documents on the scanner.
Insert patchcode sheets in front of
the documents you want to save as

Chapter 3 Basic Operation
■ Creating a Patchcode Sheet
To copy a patchcode pattern to create a different size
patchcode sheet, make sure to pay attention to the
following precautions:
IMPORTANT
• Adjust the patchcode so that it fits into the effective area for
detecting patchcode patterns.
(Effective area for detecting
patchcode patterns.)
0.2" (5 mm)

4-4
Chapter 4 Other Functions
3. Press the Start Key to start scanning.
IMPORTANT
“Verifying…” is displayed.
• The message that appears when a double feed is detected
depends on the Rapid Recovery System setting specified in
the ISIS/TWAIN driver. See “When the Rapid Recovery
System is Enabled” on p. 3-25 for details.
Hint
If the specified count is exceeded while scanning, or if the
scanned count does not reach the specified count when
scanning is finished, an error is displayed.
• Double feed detection in the Count-Only mode is set in the
User Mode, and double feeds are detected ultrasonically.
(See “Double-Feed Control Setting” on p. 4-10.)
The specified count is exceeded while scanning
Detecting Double Feeds by Document Length
This detection method is effective when scanning
documents with pages of the same size. The length of the
first page scanned serves as a standard for comparing
subsequent pages, and when a page is detected to be
approximately 1.4 inches (35 mm) longer or shorter than
the standard, a double feed is detected and document
transport is stopped.
Scanning finishes without reaching the specified count
■ Double-Feed Detection
Ultrasonic Double-Feed Detection
This detection method is effective when scanning
documents with pages of different sizes. The space
between overlapping pages is detected ultrasonically, and
document transport stops when a double feed is detected.
The scanner can detect double feeds. Two detection
methods are used: comparison of document lengths, and
ultrasonic detection of spacing between documents, which
is set in the ISIS/TWAIN driver.
IMPORTANT
• Ultrasonic double-feed detection works only when the
document pages overlap by at least two inches (50 mm).
• If documents stick together due to static electricity, Ultrasonic
Double-Feed Detection may not function correctly.
• If the presence of adhesive notes or labels on pages is
detected as a double feed and you do not want to remove
them for scanning, a non-detection zone can be specified in
the ISIS/TWAIN driver settings. (See “Double Feed Detection”
on p. 8-19.)
4-5
Chapter 4 Other Functions
■ Skew Detection
• Staple detection may not operate properly in the following
cases where bending does not occur in documents.
– The document is stapled at two or more corners.
– The document is size smaller than STMT/A5.
– The position of the left or right document guide has been
changed, and the document has been shifted to the left or
right side. (See “Adjusting the Document Guides” on p. 3-8.)
If a long document page becomes skewed as it is fed, the
page may press against the edge of the feed inlet or
transport path and be damaged.
When the scanner detects that a skewed page is contacting
the edge of the transport path, an error message is
displayed and transport stops.
Hint
• Staple detection is controlled in the ISIS/TWAIN driver, and
the detection level can be set in the User Mode. (See “Staple
Detection Level Setting” on p. 4-10.)
• Staple detection for the Count-Only mode can be set in the
User Mode. (See “Staple Detection Setting” on p. 4-10.)
IMPORTANT
• A page that becomes skewed while it is fed is only detected by
the sensors as skewed if it contacts the edge of the transport
path during scanning.
• Note that the ISIS/TWAIN driver has a Deskew function that
can detect a skewed document from the scanned image, and
straighten it.
■ Folio Scan
Use Folio Scan to scan very large documents (up to 22" ×
34"/A1 size) by folding each document sheet and scanning
the front and back. The resulting images are then
recombined to reconstruct an image of the entire page.
■ Staple Detection
When sensors at both sides of the feed inlet detect the bent
corner of a stapled document, an error message appears
and feeding stops.

IMPORTANT
• Folio scanning requires that you feed each page manually
(The Separation Off key is lit).
• Fold each page with a sharp, straight crease. Otherwise, the
paper may jam or the image may be misaligned.
IMPORTANT
• Staple detection detects the bent corner that occurs when one
of the four corners of a document has been stapled.
4-6
Chapter 4 Other Functions
• Seam artifacts may appear in the reconstructed image
because of the crease line or differences in the loading
position of each side.
• Load the document with the crease line on the right side.
• The scan image of the front side becomes the left half of the
reconstructed image.
• The maximum document size for Folio Scan is 22" × 34"/A1.
• 22" × 34"/A1 document pages should be folded lengthwise
and scanned with the following settings:
Scanner: Long Document Mode [ON1]
Page Size: Auto-Detection
• If scanning is performed when Long Document Mode is
enabled, the image may be lost. Set Long Document Mode to
[OFF] except when scanning 22" × 34"/A1 document pages.
• If scanning is performed with the scanning mode set to color,
image quality set to [Image quality priority], and scanning side
set to [Duplex], the image may be lost. If this occurs, scan by
using black and white, reducing the image quality, or setting
the scanning side to [Simplex].
Hint
Folio Scan is performed by setting the scanning side to [Folio]
in the ISIS/TWAIN driver. (See p. 8-9.)
■ Imprinter (Optional)
An imprinter that prints on scanned documents is available
as an option. For details, contact your dealer or service
representative.
Hint
• The text to print and the printing position can be specified in
the ISIS/TWAIN driver. (See p. 8-25.)
• Even if the imprinter is not installed, you can add a specified
text string onto scanned images.

possible causes:
Cause
Solution
Cause
Solution
The SCSI card is not compatible with the
scanner.
Use a recommended SCSI card. (See p. 2-3.)
The scanner’s SCSI ID is identical to the
SCSI ID of another device.
Check the SCSI IDs of all SCSI devices
connected to the system and set a unique SCSI
ID for the scanner.
Cause
Solution
The terminator is not set correctly.
When another SCSI device is connected
between the scanner and the PC, that device’s
terminator must be disabled (set to OFF).
Cause
There is a problem with another SCSI
device that is connected in the daisy
chain.
Do not use the daisy chain connection
configuration.
Solution
IMPORTANT
• If the scanner does not operate because of a system error,
turn the scanner OFF and wait at least 10 seconds before
turning it back ON. If errors continue to occur, reboot the
scanner and computer.
• When scanning with configurations that use a large amount of
the computer’s memory, scanning will be performed properly
for the first scan. However, if a second scan is performed with
the same configurations, an error may occur due to insufficient
memory and scanning may not be possible. In such cases,
restart the application you are using and change the
configurations before scanning again.
■ Slow Scanning Speed
If the scanning speed is slow, first confirm the following:
Scanning may be slow if the USB interface does not
support Hi-Speed USB 2.0.
✔ Does the PC’s USB interface support only Full-Speed
USB 1.1?
✔ Is the USB cable you are using the one that was
supplied with the scanner (Hi-Speed USB 2.0
compliant)?
✔ Is a USB 1.1-compliant device connected to the USB
hub at the same time?
■ Scanning Is Not Performed
If this does not solve the problem, consider the following
possible causes:
If scanning does not start when it should, first confirm the
following:
✔ Are the scanner and PC correctly connected with the
proper cable?
✔ Is the scanner’s power switch turned ON?

scanner cannot accurately process the
edges of documents).
When a page has text or photos extending to its
edges, turn the detection functions off or scan
that page individually.
The scanned image is abnormal in some
applications.
A function not supported by the
application was used.
Some applications do not support functions
such as auto-detection of page size, so
scanning with such applications will produce
abnormal scanned images.
If abnormal image appearance seems to be
application-dependent, try scanning with autodetection disabled.

Chapter 8 ISIS/TWAIN Driver Settings
[Auto Color Detection]
The document is detected as black-and-white or color
before the scanned image is saved.
Selecting this mode enables the [Setting] button for
opening the [Auto Image Type Detection Settings] dialog
box, where you can make settings for auto image type
detection. (See “[Auto Image Type Detection Settings]
Dialog Box” on p. 8-11.)

background remains visible in the image, and text may be
difficult to read.
[256-level Gray]
Scans documents, such as photos, as 256-level grayscale
images.
[24-bit Color]
Scans documents, such as color photos, as full-color
images.
IMPORTANT
Depending on the application program, operation may become
unstable when [Auto Color Detection] is enabled. In that case,
[Auto Color Detection] should be disabled.
Page Size
Select the page size of the document to be scanned.
[Black and White]
Use this mode to scan text and line drawing documents as
black-and-while (binary) images.
[Error Diffusion]
Use this mode to scan documents containing photos as
black-and-white (binary) images.
IMPORTANT
• Select [Auto-detection] to scan the following kinds of
documents.
– Documents of a non-standard size
– Documents containing pages of different sizes
– When using the Long Document mode (See “Long
Document Mode Setting” on p. 3-4.)
• When [Auto-detection] is selected, the area settings in the
Scan Area dialog box are disabled.
• The [Auto-detection] process may malfunction in the following
situations. If this occurs, select a standard size such as [A4] or
[Letter], or click the [Area] button to create a custom page size.
(See “[Scan Area] Dialog Box” on p. 8-12.)
– When scanning a page with a dark area at the left or right
edge
– When scanning a glossy or reflective document
– When the brightness setting is incorrect
– When the Custom setting is selected in the Gamma Settings
dialog box
• Depending on the application program, operation may
become unstable when [Auto-detection] is enabled. In that
case, [Auto-detection] should be disabled.
[Advanced Text Enhancement]
Use this mode to scan documents with a dark or nonuniform (pattern) background.
Hint
• If the background is uniform, it is removed where it surrounds
the text.
• If the background is non-uniform, such as a pattern, it is
processed to enhance text readability.
[Advanced Text Enhancement II]
This mode is displayed when the resolution is 300 dpi or
lower, and is good for scanning documents with uniform
background colors or light text and backgrounds.
Hint
• The background in tight spaces around text may not be
removed.
• Documents with low-contrast text can be made more readable
by adjusting Contrast on the [Brightness] tab sheet.

Chapter 8 ISIS/TWAIN Driver Settings
Dots per inch
Select the scanning resolution.
• Adjust the [Content density] setting in the [BlankSkip Setting]
dialog box if you specify [Skip blank page], but blank pages
are not skipped, or if non-blank pages are skipped.
Hint
• Higher resolutions provide clearer images, but produce larger
files.
• The [Moire Reduction] setting is enabled when the resolution
is set to 300 dpi or lower, and the [Image Quality] setting is
enabled when the resolution is set to 400 or 600 dpi.
• The [Advanced Text Enhancement II] mode cannot be used
when the resolution is set to 400 or 600 dpi.
• Adjust the content density according to the document content.
– When blank pages are not skipped, increase the content
density.
– When non-blank pages are skipped, reduce the content
density.
• If the application program provides its own simplex/duplex
scanning side setting, select Simplex for this setting.
Scanning Side
Select which page side(s) to scan.
[Folio]
Documents that are normally folded in half are scanned on
both sides and then composed into one image. (See “Folio
Scan” on p. 4-6.)
Hint
[Simplex]
Scans the front side (top) of documents.
When [Folio] is not displayed, the batch separation setting
on the [Others] tab sheet is set to [Patchcode] (Optional).
(See “Batch Separation” on p. 8-20.)
[Duplex]

[Staple Detection] Check Box
Select this check box to stop feeding when the sensor
detects a folded corner on a document, which occurs when
an attempt is made to feed stapled documents. (See “Staple
Detection” on p. 4-6.)
Double Feed Detection
This function stops document transport when double
feeding of document pages is detected, and enables you to
select the detection method to suit the type of documents
to be scanned. (See “Double-Feed Detection” on p. 4-5.)
[Detect by Length]
This method of double feed detection is useful for batch
scanning of same-size documents. The length of the first
document page fed is measured as a standard, and if a
subsequent document is detected to be 1.38" (35 mm)
longer (or shorter) than the standard, a double feed is
judged to have occurred, and document transport is
stopped.
[JPEG Transfer] Check Box
When this check box is selected, scanned image data is
always compressed to JPEG format within the scanner for
output to the computer.
Hint
• Scanned image data is output from the scanner as an
uncompressed or JPEG transfer, depending on instructions
from the ISIS/TWAIN driver or application program.
– With uncompressed transfer, scanned image data is output
without being compressed. Therefore, if the image data is
large, transfer of the data from the scanner to the computer
may take a long time.
– JPEG transfer is useful for color and grayscale images, as
scanned image data is JPEG-compressed within the
scanner before it is output.
This reduces the size of the image data for output, so
transfer time from the scanner to the computer is shortened.
• When JPEG Transfer is selected, image data from the
scanner is always output as JPEG-compressed data.
– When the uncompressed saving format is selected in the
application program, JPEG-compressed image data is
reconverted to uncompressed data before it is transferred to
the application. Image quality deteriorates as a result.
– This check box setting is ignored if the application program
requests a JPEG transfer.
– Application program requests depend on the specifications
of the particular program.
[Detect by Ultrasonic]
This method of double feed detection is useful for batch
scanning of different-size documents. When the ultrasonic
sensor detects overlapping documents and spacing
between documents, a double feed is judged to have
occurred, and document transport is stopped.
Hint
Both detection methods can be used together.
[Setting] Button
This button is enabled when [Detect by Ultrasonic] is
selected, and displays the [Detect Double Feed Setting]
dialog box.
In the [Detect Double Feed Setting] dialog box, you can
select the sensor position for detection and set a nondetection area so that the area where a stamp or label is
affixed to the document page is not detected as a double
feed.
Image Compression Ratio
Adjusts the compression ratio of the scanned image data.
Moving the slider towards [High Quality] reduces the
compression ratio and increases the image quality. Moving
towards [High Compression] increases the compression
ratio. Although this reduces the file size, the image quality
is also reduced.
8-19
Chapter 8 ISIS/TWAIN Driver Settings
IMPORTANT
Hint
If the documents overlap by less than 1.97" (50 mm), or if the
documents cling (such as from static electricity), ultrasonic
detection of double feeds may not word correctly.
When using the panel feeding mode to scan documents with
different-size pages, you can adjust the document guide
position after loading a document.
[Automatic Feeding]
Execute scanning with an application. The scanner starts
scanning when it detects a document loaded in the

This is linked to the [Separation Off] key on the control
panel. When [Manual Feeding] is selected, the [Separation
Off] key is lit and the Document Feed Tray is raised up.
Start scanning with an application program and feed
documents manually one at a time. The scanner detects a
document and then scans it. Press the stop key to stop
scanning.
Batch Separation
Items available for selection depend on the Feeding Option
setting: select batch separation timing (for when to start
scanning) according to the batch separation capabilities
provided by the application program.
Hint
If you press the [Separation Off] key on the control panel, the
feeding option changes to [Manual Feeding].
[Panel-Feeding]
Start scanning with an application program, load a
document, and then press the start key to start the scan
