If you want to scan to anything like Microsoft Word, etc...., then you'll need to download and install an OCR Program. I have used Simple OCR before. I see now, it's still FREE but they want you to register. The Abbyy file is on the printer drivers disk.
Faxing program can be downloaded from here. This pprogram will allow you to send a fax from your computer ONLY if your computer has a dialup modem.
You should be able to just install the proper 944 printer drivers. You should then be prompted when to connect the printer.
I think both the printer drivers were installed wrong and then conflicting with the installation and they both needed to be cleaned out in order for the installation to work.
Original poster, If you have solved your problem, can you please mark the correct thread(s) with your solution. Thanks
