■ Determining Resolution
● Resolution and Data Size
The data in the image you scan is a collection of dots carrying
information about brightness and color. The density of these
dots is called “resolution,” and “dpi” (dots per inch) refers to the
number of dots in one inch.
You can specify a resolution in [Image Quality] in the MF
Toolbox settings dialog box, or in [Output Resolution] in the
ScanGear MF.
If you double the resolution, the image data will be four times
greater. If the data is too large, processing speed will slow down
significantly, and you may experience malfunctions such as lack
of memory. Make sure the resolution corresponds to the
planned use of the image and set it at the lowest level possible.
● Images for Display on a Monitor
Images for display on a monitor in general should be scanned at
a resolution of 75 dpi.
● Images for Printing
Images to be printed should be scanned at a resolution which
corresponds to the resolution of the printer.
NOTE
With a color printer, the colors are expressed as a certain percentage of
ink pigment so scanning your document at half the resolution of the
printer should be fine.
● Printing Scale
For example, if you want to print a document which is twice the
original size both vertically and horizontally, the resolution of
your document will be reduced by half. In such a case, scan the
original document at double the resolution so that you can print
the document with sufficient quality, even if you double the size
of the document. Conversely, if you want to print a document at
a reduced size, it should be sufficient to scan at half the
resolution.

Q
Is a USB hub or repeater working properly?
A
When using a USB hub or repeater, try connecting
a USB cable directly to the computer to check if it
works properly. If you can scan the document
successfully after connecting a USB cable directly
to the computer, check your USB hub or repeater if
it is working properly.
Q
Are you using a USB 2.0-compatible USB hub?
A
If you connect the machine to a USB 2.0-equipped
computer using a USB 2.0-compatible USB hub,
you may not be able to scan. In this case, connect
a USB cable directly to the computer.

If you connect the machine to a USB 2.0-equipped
computer, you may not be able to scan. If your PC
is equipped with two or more USB ports, try
connecting the machine to another USB ports. If
the problem persists, follow the procedure below to
modify the INI file. It is recommended to make a
backup copy of the file before making any changes
to it.
1. Open the following file in Notepad or another text
editor application.
Windows 98/Me:
windows\system\CNCMFP20.ini
Windows 2000:
winnt\system32\CNCMFP20.ini
Windows XP:
windows\system32\CNCMFP20.ini
2. In the [ScanSize] section, change
“Read512Bytes=0” to “Read512Bytes=1,” then
save the file. Take care not to modify any other
parts.
Q
Have you specified the document source
correctly with the MF Toolbox, ScanGear MF, or
WIA driver?
A
Choose between placing the document on the
platen glass or in the ADF.
Q
After installing the software, did you install a
TWAIN-compatible application?
A
The TWAIN system file is replaced with something
inappropriate and you will be unable to scan
images. If this happens, remove the software, then
reinstall it. (See “Installing/Uninstalling Software,” in
the Starter Guide.)
Q
Is the machine recognized in [Scanners and
Cameras] of the [Control Panel] folder?
A
Make sure the corresponding scanner driver icon is
displayed in [Scanners and Cameras] of the
[Control Panel] folder.
1. Click [start] on the Windows task bar → select
[Control Panel] → [Scanners and Cameras].
(Windows 98/Me/2000: Click [Start] on the
Windows task bar → select [Settings] → [Control
Panel] → double-click [Scanners and Cameras].)
2. If the corresponding scanner driver icon is
displayed in the [Scanners and Cameras], the
machine is recognized. If not, remove the
software, then reinstall it. (See “Installing/

Color Matching
In some cases, the range of colors captured by a scanner
exceeds the range that can be displayed by a particular monitor.
In addition, the colors displayed for an image on the monitor may
be slightly different than those output by a printer. Color Matching
is the process used to make the colors captured by a scanner
consistent with those shown on a display or printed on a printer.
Contrast
Bit
An indication of the volume of data used to describe points in an
image. A 1-bit image assigns image data black or white color
values depending on whether the brightness value is above or
below a particular threshold value. The result is a two-color
image. An 8-bit grayscale image expresses an image in 256
shades of gray ranging from white to black. A 24-bit color image
assigns 8 bits to each RGB color channel, expressing each pixel
in approximately 16.8 million colors.
Brightness
The relative proportion of light and dark areas. Decreasing
brightness darkens the overall image; increasing brightness
lightens it.
The degree of difference between the lightest and darkest areas
of an image. Decreasing contrast lightens the dark areas and
darkens the light areas; increasing it darkens the dark areas and
lightens the light areas.
Control Panel
The set of Windows programs you can use to change system,
hardware, software, and Windows settings.
Crop
The action of selecting only part of an image for use. Using the
Crop button on the ScanGear MF toolbar, a portion of the preview
image can be selected and only that portion is then re-previewed
or included in the final scan.

The Exchangeable Image File (Exif) format is a Japan Electronic

most digital cameras to store images. The Exif compressed files
use the baseline JPEG format, so they can be read by any

exposure information, etc., within the header of each JPEG file.

Appendix
Resolution
4
The density of dots for any given output device, expressed in
terms of dots per inch (dpi). Low resolution causes font
characters and graphics to have a jagged appearance, but prints
faster than higher resolutions. Higher resolution provides
smoother curves and angles as well as a better match to
traditional typeface designs, but prints more slowly. Resolution
values are represented by horizontal data and vertical data, for
example, 600 x 600 dpi.
TWAIN (Technology Without Any Interested Name)
Industry-standard protocol for transferring information from
devices such as scanners and digital cameras to a computer.
Industry-standard protocol for an application programming
interface (API) for input devices such as scanners. If both the
device and the application comply with the standard, they will be
compatible regardless of differences in manufacturer or model.
For example, with TWAIN-compatible image-processing software,
you can start the scanner’s TWAIN driver from the software’s
menu, scan the document and return the scanned image to its
original image-processing software.
S
Scanner driver
A program that controls how the computer and scanner interact.
The scanner driver is provided with two drivers: The TWAIN and
the WIA driver (for use with Windows XP).
Scanners and Cameras folder (Scanners and Cameras
Properties dialog box)
The folder or dialog box that contains information about your
imaging devices, such as scanners or cameras.

machine in applications which support the TWAIN interface
(Photoshop etc.).
Windows Explorer
The Windows program you can use to browse through, open, and
manage the disk drives, folders, and files on your computer in a
network system. You can also use Windows Explorer to view and
open shared folders on other computers on the network. You can
use Windows Explorer to manage your files by moving, copying,
