We are having the exact same issue that Frank is describing. After scanning a document, it can be downloaded from the web interface as any file type except the smaller PDF. When the Smaler PDF is chosen the web interface locks up for two or three minutes for all users. If the requesting user waits long enough the save-as dialog will come up and the document is successfully downloaded, but it takes far longer than most users are willing to wait- several minutes sometimes.
We just upgraded to the newest firmware for the device, first OS 8.54 / PS 4.9.4 / Net 41.60.06.23.2010 and then OS 8.56 / PS 4.9.6 / Net 42.00.04.09.2011 without any luck. We are accessing the web interface from Windows 7 x86 using IE 9, Chrome 14, and Firefox 7.0.1 with the same results on all of them. It almost seems like compression of the pdf is taking an unusually long time but I'm not sure why.
I welcome any suggustions.
after firmware update and new ie I can download high quality pdf files from the 8560 harddisc
but NOT low quality pdf files.
I don´t know why but I think its OK
I'm not quite sure if this helped you or not? It looks like you are now able to download high quality PDF files when you were not able to before - is that correct? Has anything changed since yesterday when you last tried to work with a PDF file?
I can not download PDF scans with low quality,
but I can download PDF scans with high quality.... !
I don´t know why but I scan also in high quality !
Are you using this process to get your scanned images?
To retrieve scanned images using CWIS:
If not, does this method work for downloading your .pdf files?
please try upgrading your internet explorer , that version 6 is rather old....
also there are new firmwares out for that machine : you can download it here :
