Length: 50.8 mm to 356 mm (2" to 14") (You can scan
documents up to 3,000 mm (118.1") long by setting the
scanner to the Long Document mode.)
Paper thickness
Normal feed:
27 to 209 g/m2 (7 to 56 lb bond) 0.04 mm
to 0.25 mm (0.00157" to 0.00984")
Non separation feed: 27 to 255 g/m2 (7 to 68 lb bond) 0.04 mm
to 0.3 mm (0.00157" to 0.0118")
Loading capacity
A4 size or smaller: 60 sheets (80g/m2 (21 lb bond))
Larger than A4 size: 40 sheets (80g/m2 (21 lb bond))
Make sure stacks do not exceed 10 mm in height (including
curls) for either of the above.
Align the leading edges
Feed roller
• It is recommended that documents exceeding 356 mm (14") size
are fed one sheet at a time.
• Scanning documents before the ink is dry can cause problems with
the scanner. Always make sure that the ink on a document is dry
before scanning it.
• Scanning documents that are written in pencil or similar material
may make the rollers and scanning glass dirty, which can lead to
smudges on the scanned image and transfer the dirt to subsequent
documents. Always clean the internal parts of the scanner after
scanning such 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. In
this case, adjust the scanning intensity in the application software
before scanning the document.
• When the paper of the document is thin, switch to thin paper mode
and then feed the document. For details, see “Placing Thin Paper
(Thin Paper Mode)” on p. 28.
• Laminated documents may not be scanned correctly, depending
on the document.
IMPORTANT
The documents to be scanned must satisfy certain criteria. Read the
following items carefully.
• When scanning multiple documents of different sizes, place the
documents so that they cover the entire span of the feed rollers by
aligning the centers and leading edges of the documents.
23
• Scanning the following types of documents can cause a paper jam
or malfunction. To scan such a document, make a photocopy of the
document and then scan the photocopy.
There are creases or
fold lines.
Carbon paper
There are curls.
The surface is coated.
There are tears.
Extremely thin document
such as semi-transparent
thin paper.
There are clips or
staples.
Documents with excessive
paper dust particles.

Vertical feeding only
IMPORTANT
• We recommend placing business cards horizontally. Vertically
placed business cards may not feed properly depending on their
size.
• If a stack of business cards cannot be fed properly, reduce the
number of cards in the stack.

Size:
54 mm x 86 mm (2.12" x 3.37") (ISO standard)
Card thickness: 1.4 mm (0.055") or smaller
Orientation:
Horizontal feeding only
Embossed cards can be scanned.
Loading capacity: 3 cards (non-embossed), 1 card (embossed)
CAUTION
• When scanning cards, place them to be fed horizontally. If you
place cards to be fed vertically, they may not be ejected properly,
and cards that get jammed may be damaged when you remove
them.
• Embossed cards may not be able to be scanned correctly,
depending on the type of embossment.
24
How to Place Documents
When placing long documents, pull out the document eject
extension support to match the length of those documents. Also,
stand the eject stopper at the end of the eject support if necessary.
Scanning multiple documents
Standard paper feeding should be used when scanning multiple
documents of a standard size at one time. Standard paper feeding
enables multiple documents to be fed while separating each page.
1
Open the document eject tray.
IMPORTANT
Pull out the eject support and document eject extension support.

• Before you place a document, check to make sure it does not
contain paper clips, staples, or other small metal objects. These
items may cause a fire or electrical shock, damage the document,
or cause a paper jam or scanner malfunction.
• Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry that may get caught in the
scanner while you are using it, as this may result in personal injury.
Be extra careful of neckties and long hair. If anything gets caught in
the scanner, immediately turn OFF the power switch, and
disconnect the power cord from the power outlet to stop scanning.
• Always smooth out any folds or curls in your documents before
placing them into the feeder. If the leading edge of a document is
curled, it may cause a paper jam.
• If feeding stops due to a system error or paper jam while the
scanner is scanning, resolve the problem, make sure that the
scanned image of the last page that was successfully fed has been
stored, and then resume scanning the remaining document pages.
• After you finish scanning, close the document eject tray to prevent
damage to the scanner while it is not being used.
Adjust the document guides to fit the width of the
document to be scanned.
Place the document.
When scanning a document one page
at a time (non separation mode)
When scanning a thick document one page at a time or scanning a
document that has multiple pages fastened together, set document
feeding to non separation mode. This enables the placed document to
be scanned without the pages being separated, regardless of the
number of pages.
Non separation mode switching is performed by opening the scanner
driver settings screen.
1
After placing the document, align the document guides with both
edges of the document.
IMPORTANT
• When placing documents into the feed tray, take care not to cut
your hand on the edges of the paper.
• Make sure that the document does not exceed the loading limit
marks ( ) on the document guides. Up to 60 pages of ordinary
plain paper (80 g/m2) can be loaded at the same time.

IMPORTANT
Placing Folded Documents
Adjust the document guides to fit the width of the document.
Otherwise, the image may scan as skewed or shifted.
Folio Scan enables you to scan documents that are larger than LTR/
A4 and therefore do not fit in the feeder. To use the function, fold the
document in half lengthwise and place it into the feeder. The DRM160II will scan both sides and combine the scanned images into a
single image.

method to scan A2-sized documents. When scanning a folded
document of a size other than the standard formats, set [Page
Size] on the scanner driver settings screen to [Match original
size]. (See p. 60)
Crease the document firmly down its center to fold the document
in half. Fold the document so that its edges are neatly aligned. If
the document is not folded properly, paper jams may occur or
distortions may appear in the combined scanned image.

More Advanced Scanning Methods (Batch Separation)
Hint
Batch Separation (Insert blank page)
• This function can be used with the supplied CapturePerfect
software. Other applications that support this function include ISIScompatible applications. It is not supported by TWAIN-compatible
applications.
• Patchodes are included with this product in PDF format.
Applications that can read PDF files such as the supplied
CapturePerfect are required to use this function.
Recognizes blank pages as batch separators and performs batch
separation (automatic file separation) when documents containing
blank pages are scanned.
On the [Others] tab of the ISIS driver properties, select [Blank Page]
from the Batch Separation dropdown list.
The following patchcodes are installed together with the scanner
driver as PDF files.
Type of
Patchcode
Description
PATCH (FILE A)
Files are separated from
the page after the page
printed with this patchcode.
You specify in the
application whether to
include the page printed
with the patchcode in the
scanned image.
PATCH II (FILE B)
Files are separated from
the page printed with this
patchcode. The page with
the printed patchcode is
always included in the
scanned image.
IMPORTANT
• When [Simplex] is selected in [Scanning Side], blank pages on the
scanned side will be recognized as separators. When [Duplex],
[Skip blank page], or [Folio] is selected in [Scanning Side],
document pages will be recognized as separators when both sides
of a page are blank.
• Images of pages recog nized as separators will not be saved.
Pattern
The following operations are performed when using patchcodes for
scanning.
Batch Separation
By tucking patchcode sheets supplied with this scanner into a
document and scanning it, the scanner can automatically separate
files by images of documents containing patchcode sheets (or
documents after the patchcode sheet).

Opening and Closing the Front Unit
Replacing Consumable Parts
1
The two rollers (feed roller and retard roller) installed in the scanner
are consumable parts. The feed roller and retard roller wear with
scanning. If the feed roller and retard roller are worn, documents may
not feed correctly and paper jams and double feeds may occur.
When more than 200,000 pages have been fed (total number of pages
fed by the scanner), a message prompting you to replace the rollers is
displayed when the computer is started.
2
If this message begins to be displayed at startup, purchase an
exchange roller kit and replace the worn parts with the consumable
parts included in the kit (feed roller and retard roller). See p. 102 for
details about the exchange roller kit.
Furthermore, the counter in the scanner that records the number of
pages fed also needs to be reset when you replace the rollers. (See
p. 88)
Hint
Even before it becomes time to replace the rollers, scanned images
may become stretched in the vertical direction due to wear of the
rollers. If this happens, adjust the reduction ratio. (See p. 83)

Troubleshooting
Common Problems and Solutions
This section provides recommended solutions to common problems.
If you have a problem that is not solved by the following, contact your
local authorized Canon dealer.
Problem 1
The scanner will not turn on.
Solutions
Confirm that the AC adapter is plugged firmly into a
power outlet.
Problem 2
The scanner is not recognized.
Solutions
(1) Confirm that the scanner is properly connected to
the computer with a USB cable.
(2) Confirm that the scanner is turned on. See the
previous problem (1) if the scanner does not turn
on.
(3) The computer’s USB interface may not support the
scanner. The scanner cannot be guaranteed to
work with all USB interfaces.
(4) Confirm that the supplied USB cable is used to
connect the scanner to the computer. The scanner
cannot be guaranteed to work with all available
USB cables.
(5) If the scanner is connected to the computer via a
USB hub, try removing the hub and connecting
directly to the computer.
92
Problem 3
Documents feed askew (scanned images are
slanted).
Solutions
(1) Align the document guides to fit the documents as
closely as possible, and load the documents so that
they feed straightly.
(2) Open the document feed extension support and
place the document.
(3) Enable [Automatically straightens skewed] (or
[Deskew]) in the scanner driver settings.
(4) If many pages have been scanned since roller
cleaning, clean the rollers. If documents still feed
askew, roller replacement or other maintenance
may be needed. See “Maintenance” on p. 80 for
roller replacement procedures.
Problem 4
Both sides are not scanned even when the Duplex
scanner driver setting is enabled.
Solutions
When you scan using a job registered with
CaptureOnTouch, the registered job settings have
priority over the scanner driver settings. Edit existing
job settings, or create a new job using the desired
scanning conditions.
Problem 5
If white lines or streaks appear in scanned images.
Solutions
Clean both sides of the scanner glass, and the rollers.
If a sticky substance such as glue or correction fluid is
found, carefully wipe with just enough pressure to clean
the area where the lines appear. If the problem cannot
be solved by cleaning, the internal glass may be
scratched. Contact your local authorized Canon dealer.
Problem 6
Pages are missing.
Solutions
When the scanner driver’s [Scanning Side] setting is
[Skip Blank Page], documents with very little black may
be unintentionally skipped. Decrease the Set the
likelihood of skipping blank page value ("When you
want to delete the images of the blank pages in twosided documents" on P. 59) or set the [Scanning Side]
to another mode, such as simplex or duplex.
If pages are skipped due to the document double
feeding, see "Problem 7 Documents jam (or doublefeed)."
Problem 7
Solutions
Problem 9
Multiple pages of scanned images cannot be saved
to a single file.
Solutions
• Depending on the file format, multiple scanned image
pages cannot be saved as a single file with
CaptureOnTouch.
File type
Processing for multiple pages
BMP (Windows
only), JPEG
Scanned images are always saved one
page per file.
PPTX
(Windows only)
Multi-page images are always saved to
a single file.
TIFF, PDF
You can save multiple pages to a single
file by clicking
and selecting [Save
all pages as one file] in the displayed
dialog box.
Documents jam (or double-feed).
(1) If the roller has been installed correctly, clean it if
necessary.
(2) Proper scanning may not be possible when
document pages stick together due to static
electricity. Fan the documents before you load
them.
(3) Set the scanner to non separation mode, and
manually feed the scanner one page at a time.
Problem 8
Scanned images are saved in TIFF instead of JPEG
format.
Solutions
When documents are scanned with CapturePerfect
while [Color Mode] is set to [Detect automatically] in the
scanner driver, documents detected as black and white
are automatically saved in TIFF format, even if the file
type is specified as JPEG format. This occurs because
JPEG format does not support black and white binary
format images. If you want to save all images in JPEG
format, change the scanning [Color Mode] to either [24bit Color] or [256-level Gray].
• When you select [Scan Batch to File] from the [Scan]
menu in CapturePerfect, a dialog box appears with a
[Multi Page Settings] pull-down that allows you to
select [Single Page]. If you select [Single Page] here,
each page of a multi-page document is saved as a
separate image file. To save multiple pages to a
single image file, select [Multi Page (All Pages)].
93
Problem 10
All of the placed documents have been scanned,
but the scanned image does not appear on the
application.
Solutions
When [Panel-Feeding] or [Automatic Feeding] is
selected as the feeding method on the scanner driver's
Detail Settings screen, a scanning operation will not
continue after all of the documents are fed, as the
scanner awaits additional documents to be fed. You
can finish the operation and send the scanned images
to the application by pressing the Stop button on the
operating panel.
Problem 11 Memory becomes insufficient and scanning stops.
Solutions
If you configure scanning conditions that use a large
amount of the computer’s memory, scanning may stop
because of insufficient memory. Although this depends
on the computer’s memory size, the possibility of
insufficient memory increases if any of the following
scanning conditions overlap.
• [Color Mode] is set to [24-bit Color]
• A large page size (e.g. Legal) is specified as the
[Page Size]. Alternatively, the page size is set to
[Scanner’s Maximum].
• A high resolution (600dpi etc.) is specified for [Dots
per inch].
If an error message appears due to insufficient memory
while scanning is in progress, exit the application,
change the scanning conditions (e.g. reduce the
resolution or page size) and then try scanning again. In
addition, the amount of memory used can be contained
by turning off [Moire Reduction] and [Prevent Bleed
Through/Remove Background] if they are set to on.
94
Software Troubleshooting
This section describes troubleshooting problems and solutions for
operating the supplied software (CaptureOnTouch and
CapturePerfect).
If scanning is too slow
(1) Close other running programs, if any.
(2) Scanning can be slowed down by memory shortage caused by
memory-resident applications such as anti-virus programs. Close
such memory-resident programs if necessary to free up memory
space.
(3) When insufficient hard disk space is available, the scanner may
be unable to create the necessary temporary files for scanned
data. Delete unneeded data on the hard disk to free up more
space.
(4) Scanning is slow if the computer’s USB port is not Hi-Speed USB
2.0 compliant.
(5) If using a common USB cable that is not Hi-Speed USB 2.0
compliant, replace the cable with the supplied compliant cable.
(6) When the scanner is connected to the computer via a USB hub
that is not Hi-Speed USB 2.0 compliant, remove the hub and
connect the scanner directly to the computer.
If scanned image files cannot be opened in an application
(1) Scanned images saved as multi-page TIFF files can be opened
only by programs that support this file format.
(2) Images saved as compressed TIFF files (single- as well as multipage) can only be opened by programs that support the
compressed format. This can occur with programs that are not
compatible with CaptureOnTouch or CapturePerfect. In this case,
select “None” as the image file compression format before
scanning.
