Just a quickie; i have windows 7 and a dell 1600n multifunctional printer - i can print just fine but i cant scan things up - the printer is connected etc as i can print so no probs there but when i go to scan and use the dell software/ms paint it doesn't recognise the scanner - the scanner subfolder is in the driver folder on the printer installation - what the heck is the problem?! THANKS!
-I dont know if it's necessary but I also went to "scanners and cameras" (I found this option by writing "scan" in start and it was in suggestions) and there I selected dell 1600n and -> properties-> test scanner
-go to start-> devices and printers (or something like this, I dont have eng win) and if selected dell printer you'll have an option for scanning. That's it
