Switching the ScanSnap You Use

Connecting the ScanSnap to a computer registers the ScanSnap with ScanSnap Home. If multiple ScanSnap units have been connected so far, you can switch the ScanSnap you use by selecting a ScanSnap unit from the [Select a scanner] list in the scan window.

ATTENTION
  • When connecting two or more ScanSnap units with a USB cable, turn off a ScanSnap that is not being used and then switch to the ScanSnap that you want.
