    Hi everyone. Today I am just trying to understand my scanner software a little better. I have a Canoscan LIDE 90 usb scanner, using Cannon software MP Navigator EX1.0, running on a windows 2000 sp4 machine. When I scan an item using the color mode setting in the software, I have the ability to set my format to jpeg, tiff, bmp, or pdf, but as soon as I set the softwares color mode setting to scan using the black and white setting, I loose the ability to format in jpeg, jpeg just disappears from the drop down format type box. I have figured out that all I need to do is to scan everything black and white/color using the color setting, but was curious as to why just a switch in the color mode from color to black and white looses the ability to save in jpeg.

    That is what my lide 25 does also, not sure why canon does it that way.

    I sent Canon an email about this issue, I will post their response when I get one.
