its power directly from the computer through the USB cable. If you
use a USB Hub with your computer, the Hub must have its own
power supply so the scanner can draw power from it. The scanner also
does not have an on/off switch. It is ready to scan as soon as Windows

Scanning
This section describes how to scan paper documents, book pages and
photographs:
You can use several different methods to scan with your scanner.
■
OneTouch Scanner Buttons—Each scanner button is set up to scan
for a particular function, such as Email to attach a scanned item to a
new Email message, or Photo to scan photographs to the ArcSoft
PhotoImpression software where you can touch up the colors. See
“Scan from the OneTouch Scanner Buttons” on page 17.
■
OneTouch Button Panel—Scanning from the on-screen OneTouch
Button Panel is the same as pressing a scanner button, except you
click an icon that represents the scanner button. See “Scan from the
OneTouch Button Panel” on page 22.
■
TWAIN Interface—This option is for scanning from within a
scanning application. The TWAIN interface is available from the
PaperPort software and ArcSoft Scrapbook Suite applications, as well
as from other programs such as Microsoft Word. The TWAIN
interface has two options—the Basic Interface and the Advanced
Interface. “Scanning from the TWAIN Interface” on page 81
■
Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) Interface—This option uses
the Microsoft Windows set of choices for scanning paper items only.
Scanning with WIA is available only if your computer is running
Windows XP or Windows Vista. See “Scanning from the Windows
Image Acquisition (WIA) Interface” on page 99.

SCANNING FROM ONETOUCH
OneTouch is your main scanning interface for using the scanner. The
OneTouch Buttons on the scanner mirror the software OneTouch
Button Panel. Changing the button settings on the OneTouch Button
Panel makes the same changes to the buttons on the scanner.
SCAN FROM THE ONETOUCH SCANNER BUTTONS
Pressing a scanner button scans the item, and then sends the image to
the Destination Application associated with the button. Each button’s
scanning function are the selected settings shown in the OneTouch
Properties window.
Based on the recommended installation of PaperPort and the scanner
driver, your scanner is preconfigured to scan items for various basic
tasks, such as email or fax, then send the scanned image to an
appropriate, pre-selected Destination Application.
If PaperPort is not installed, then the options for sending to word
processing applications such as Microsoft Word will not be available.
The following table describes the preconfigured button settings. These
are the default settings on installation of the OneTouch software and
they can be reconfigured to reflect your own scanning needs:

SCAN FROM THE ONETOUCH BUTTON PANEL
Scanning from the button panel on your computer’s screen works just
like pressing a button on the scanner. The scanner scans the item, then
sends the image to the Destination Application indicated by the button’s
icon. This method of scanning is especially helpful if the scanner is not
located close to your computer.
To scan from the button panel on the screen:
1. Place an item face down on the glass. Align the bottom of the item
with the scanner’s reference marks.
OneTouch Icon.
2. Close the document cover, and click the OneTouch icon on the
right-hand side of the Windows System Tray (at the bottom right
corner of the screen).
The button panel opens on the screen. The five buttons on the
panel correspond to the same five buttons on the scanner.
3. Click a button on the panel.
The scanner starts scanning the item. When the scan is complete, the
scanned image opens in the Destination Application indicated by the
button’s icon just as if you had scanned using a scanner button. For
example, if you click the Scan button, the scanned image opens in the
PaperPort program.
Note: To scan from the Button Panel, the OneTouch Properties
window must be closed. Click the window’s close box, or click the
Cancel or OK button on the window. See the next section, “Scan

ABOUT THE ONETOUCH BUTTON PANEL’S NAMES AND ICONS
The button names on the panel are the same as button names on the
scanner. The icons indicate the Destination Applications so you can see,
at a glance, where the image will be sent when scanning is finished.
The Scan button—Scans a page in black and white and sends the
image to the PaperPort software that you received with your scanner.
From there you can easily convert the image to many different formats,
such as PDF or DOC.
The Custom button— Scans the item as a color photo and displays it
in an image processing application. If your computer is running
Windows XP or Windows Vista, and has a CD burner attached, the
Custom button will be pre-configured to burn a CD.
The Email button—Scans a page in color then sends it to your email
application. The email application opens and the image is automatically
attached to a new message ready for you to address and send.
The OCR button—Scans a page in black & white then sends the image
to a word processing application such as Microsoft Word. OneTouch
automatically converts the item’s text to black and white word
processing text, and displays it in a word processing application so that
the text can be edited.
The Copy button—Scans a page in color then sends the image to your
printer/copier. The printer/copier starts and prints a copy of the page.
This is a quick way to print a copy of the original page.
A question mark for a button means your computer does not have
appropriate software, or in some cases the appropriate hardware, for the
initial factory settings. In that case, you can re-set the button’s
Destination Application to a software application that you know is on
your computer.
See “Selecting Settings for a Button” on page 29 to change the settings
of a button.

The available options are for images and text.
Image Formats
Text Formats; TEXT
is only one of several
text formats available.
IMAGE FORMATS
Select an image file format for photos, artwork or other documents that
you want to save as images. BMP and TIFF are standard image file
formats generally used if you want to do additional image processing,
such as photo touch-up or color correction. Both of those file formats
tend to be larger than the JPG format.
Because JPG image files can be reduced in size, the JPG format is often
used for images on web pages, or if file size might be a problem when
electronically sending the files. JPG files are reduced in size by lowering
their image quality, and you can select the degree of quality for your
scanned images from the JPG page format icon.
The PDF format is often used to create images of text pages. You may
want to select PDF as the page format when scanning text pages that do
not require OCR processing or other processing. The PDF format is
also used to put multi-page documents on web sites as pdf-readable
files. As with the JPG option, the PDF format can be reduced in size or
quality.

Create copies of scanned documents—Sometimes the image of a
scanned document is only saved as a temporary file until its
Destination Application is finished using it. In those cases you may
or may not want an additional, permanent copy saved on your hard
drive.
For example, if you scan a picture to an email application, the
scanned image is saved as a temporary file, then attached to the
email, and the email is sent. But because you already have the
original picture, you may not want to also save a permanent file of
that image as well. The same situation may occur when you scan
directly to a printer or scan to a fax application. You already have
the paper version (and in the case of a printer, you would have two
paper copies—the original and the scanned printed version) so
there’s no need for an electronic file too. However, by selecting this
Create copies of scanned documents option, you can choose to
save permanent copies of those types of images on your hard drive.
The copies will be saved in the folder specified in the Folder Copy
Options section.
You can selectively choose which buttons you have turned this
feature on. After you turn this feature on it is used no matter where
you set the scanning destination. By selecting the Fax and Print
box and clicking the Create copies of scanned documents option,
every scanned document you fax or print from the scanner is also
saved as a permanent file on your hard drive.
This option is not available if Document Management or Storage
and CD-R/W are selected because, by default, file copies for those
types of Destination Applications are already automatically saved.
For that reason, this option is disabled if the Destination
Application is PaperPort because it is Document Management
software.
Likewise, the option is also not available if the Destination
Application is set to Transfer to Storage because it uses Storage and
CD-R/W software.

■
Mode—Select a scanning mode:
Black&White to scan in black and white. For example, letters
and memos are usually scanned in black and white. This scan
mode produces the smallest file size.
GrayScale to scan items such as documents containing
drawings or black and white photographs. The scanning
produces an image of up to 256 shades of gray.
Color to scan color photographs and other color items. Color
scans have the largest file size.
■
Resolution—Drag the slider to the right or left to adjust the
dots per inch (dpi) of the resolution. The maximum resolution is
1200 dpi; the minimum is 50 dpi. The higher the dpi setting,
the sharper and clearer the scanned image. However, higher dpi
settings take longer to scan and produce larger files for the
scanned images.
■
Brightness and Contrast—Sometimes an item is scanned with
the brightness and contrast set too light or too dark. For
example, a note written with a light pencil may need to be
scanned darker to improve legibility.
Brightness refers to the lightness or darkness of the image.
Contrast is the range between the darkest and lightest portions of
the image. The greater the contrast, the more the difference
between the lighter and darker shades in the image.
Drag the sliders to the right or left to adjust the brightness and
contrast of the scanned image. The Contrast setting does not
apply to the Black&White mode.

9. Click the Burn to CD button.
The CD burner begins and your scanned documents are written to
the CD.
Note: Until you click Burn to CD these files are stored in your
computer at C:\Documents and Settings\<your user name>\Local
Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\CD Burning. This is where
Windows XP stores all files waiting to be burned to a CD by the
automatic CD writing wizard. If other files are also waiting in this
location, they will get written with the OneTouch files on the CD.
Note: When scanning items to burn to a CD, you should always use
one of the factory-set default configurations, or a custom
configuration specifically set up for CD burning. The default
configurations are already set up to send the scanned images to the
proper storage location where the Windows XP CD writing wizard
can find the files to burn to the CD. Likewise, when you create a
custom configuration for CD burning, the OneTouch software will
automatically make sure the storage location is correct.
To create a custom configuration for CD burning, select Burn to CD
as the Destination Application, then click the New button and create
the new configuration. You won’t need to select a storage location
because it will be correctly preset for you by the OneTouch software.
Note however, that if you have created other custom configurations
with different storage locations (for example, see “Scanning to
Multiple Folders” on page 74), do not use them for the Burn to CD
Destination Application. Otherwise, the Windows XP CD writing
wizard will not be able to find the images to burn onto the CD.

TRANSFERRING SCANNED DOCUMENTS TO STORAGE
With the Transfer to Storage scanning process, you can scan documents
and save them in a folder in one step. The process is ideal for archiving
documents without having to manually save or process them in any
other way. If you choose a text format for the file format, the documents
are also automatically converted by the OCR process into editable text
and numbers before they are stored. See the section, “Scanning with
Optical Character Recognition (OCR)” on page 45, to set up the
Archive button for the OCR process.
The Archive button on your scanner is preset to transfer scanned
documents to storage. If you changed the settings for the Archive
button, or want to set up another scanner button for archiving, please
see the steps in the section “Selecting Settings for a Button” on page 29,
and also see the sections “Storage Properties” on page 37 and “The

VISIONEER ONETOUCH 7400 USB SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE
Note: The Storage Location shown in the example above is the
default place where your scanned documents are stored if you haven’t
created any new scanning configurations or selected a new storage
location. If you create a new scan configuration that has its own
storage location and you use that configuration to scan, your scanned
documents will be stored at the new location instead of the default.
SCANNING TO MULTIPLE FOLDERS
When archiving documents with the Archive button with the Transfer
to Storage as the Destination Application, you can scan the documents
to multiple folders. For example, one folder might be for “Business
Receipts,” a second folder might be for “Personal Receipts,” and a third
folder might be for “Annual Receipts.”
To scan to multiple folders, you create multiple configurations, each
with a different storage location for the scanned documents. Scan one
set of documents using the scan configuration with the appropriate
storage location for that set. Then switch to another scan configuration
and scan the next set of documents to store them in their folder.
Setting up multiple folders for transfer to storage:
1. Using Microsoft Windows, create the folders you want to use for
storing scanned items. Note that you can also create the folders later
while creating the new scan configurations.

SCANNING FROM THE TWAIN INTERFACE
You can scan from any TWAIN scanning application instead of
scanning from the OneTouch buttons on your scanner or using the
OneTouch button panel.
A NOTE ABOUT THE TWAIN STANDARD
Your scanner uses the TWAIN interface to scan photographs and
documents. TWAIN is a widely recognized standard that computers use
to receive images from scanners, digital cameras, and other digital
devices. The TWAIN scanning interface can be accessed from any
TWAIN scanning application you have installed on the computer.
Applications such as Nuance PaperPort and ArcSoft PhotoImpression,
which were provided with your scanner, and many other applications,
will use the TWAIN interface for scanning. This section specifically
describes how to use the features of the TWAIN interface for scanning,
however, the instructions in this section may use the PaperPort software
as an example only.
Refer to the User Guide you received with your other scanning
application for instructions on setting up that application to access the
TWAIN interface. As previously stated, the scanning method is the
same, but you will need to refer to your product's user guide for
instructions on how to access the scanner and how file handling works.
Instructions for setting up the PaperPort software to access the TWAIN
interface is provided in this User’s Guide.

Resolution determines the amount of detail you can see in the scanned
image. The resolution setting for a scan is in dots-per-inch (dpi). The
higher the resolution, the finer the details, however, higher dpi settings
also take longer to scan and produce larger files sizes. Usually the higher
resolution settings are used for precision work, such as photographs or
fine artwork.
The following figure shows the resolution options.
92
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 7400 USB SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE

For example, to set the resolution for scanning a business card,
select Business Card. That setting is preset to read small print on a
typical business card.
2. To set the resolution manually, drag the Resolution slider to the left
to decrease the resolution or to the right to increase it.
You can also type a number directly into the resolution setting box,
or click the up and down arrows to increase or decrease the setting.
3. Click Reset to return the resolution to its original setting.
The resolution panel also includes an advanced setting for Moire
patterns. Moire patterns are wavy, rippled lines that sometimes appear
on the scanned images of photographs or illustrations, particularly
newspaper and magazine illustrations. To scan the image and limit or
eliminate moire patterns, select the Reduce Moire option.

CLEANING THE SCANNER GLASS
107
Maintenance
This section contains information on cleaning, troubleshooting,
uninstalling, and scanner specifications.
CLEANING THE SCANNER GLASS
Scanning items that have excessive amounts of dirt or dust may dirty the
glass. To ensure the best quality scanned item, wipe the scanner glass
with a soft clean cloth to rid the glass of dust or other debris.
TROUBLESHOOTING
In addition to the troubleshooting information contained in this
section, please see the Readme file on the Installation CD. The Readme
file contains additional information that may help you diagnose
problems with the scanner.
If you try all the troubleshooting procedures described in this section
and in the Readme file, and the scanner still has problems, you may
have a malfunctioning scanner. Please see the technical support card
that you received with your scanner. Also visit our web site at
www.visioneer.com for additional technical information.
Problem: The scanner won’t scan. What’s wrong?
Check for one of these possible problems:
• Is a cable loose or not plugged in securely? Inspect the cable
connections. Make sure all the cables are plugged in securely.
• Is the scanner’s status light on? If the light is not on, plug the USB
cable into a different USB port on the computer. If the scanner is
plugged into a USB hub, try plugging the scanner directly to the back
of the computer.
108
VISIONEER ONETOUCH 7400 USB SCANNER INSTALLATION GUIDE
• Did you restart the computer after installing the software? If you
didn’t restart the computer, it may not have loaded all of the software
files. Try restarting your computer.
• Did you plug in your scanner before installing the software? If you
plugged in your scanner before installing the software Windows may
not have associated the correct driver files to the scanner. Try
unplugging the scanner for 10 seconds then plugging the scanner
back in. Also try rebooting the computer.
• Did you plug the scanner into a USB hub? If you’re using a USB
hub to connect the scanner, the hub must have its own power supply.
If the hub does not have its own power supply, plug the scanner into
a USB port on the computer.
• Did you select another TWAIN source for acquiring images? If
you use multiple TWAIN devices with your computer, you may have
selected another source for images. Make sure your scanning
application has the Visioneer 7400 scanner selected.
Problem: During installation I got the error message: PaperPort
Installation is not complete. What do I do?
The installation procedure was not successful. You need to reboot your
computer then launch the PaperPort software installation again.
Problem: I got the error message: PaperPort cannot allocate enough
memory to perform internal critical operations. What do I do?
Close any other active applications so that additional memory is
available. If you click Continue, PaperPort moves the file to the
PaperPort data directory and renames the file with the prefix “bad.”
This allows you to recover the file later.
To recover the file, you can import it into PaperPort by using the Import
command in the File menu.
TROUBLESHOOTING
109
Problem: The installation will not complete successfully. If
installation finishes, the scanner’s OneTouch 4.0 options do not
seem to work properly. What do I do?
A likely cause is that some driver programs are already installed on your
computer for another scanner. They are interfering with the installation
and OneTouch options, and you need to remove those other drivers and
re-install your Visioneer 7400 USB scanner. Please see the
documentation that you received with the other scanner for the steps to
remove its driver programs. You can also use the basic steps in the
section “Uninstall Your Scanner” on page 110, but in Step 3, instead of
uninstalling OneTouch 4.0, uninstall the other scanner’s driver
programs. After uninstalling the other scanner’s driver programs,
uninstall OneTouch 4.0 using the steps on page 110, then reinstall it
using the steps on page 6.
Problem: My computer keeps giving me out of memory error
messages. What do I do?
Make sure that your system meets the minimum requirements for using
the scanner.
■
A minimum of 256 MB (megabytes) of internal memory (RAM)
for Windows 2000 and Windows XP
■
512 MB is the minimum requirement as set by Microsoft for
Windows Vista
Problem: My computer keeps giving me out of hard drive space
error messages. What do I do?
The minimum requirement of 200MB free hard drive space is for the
installation of the software and basic scanning functions. High
resolution scans result in files that can be over 1 gigabyte in size. Free up
space on your hard drive for the software to be able to save the scanned
images.
