Q: How do I set up the scanner so I can start scanning?

A: Remove the scanner from packaging and from the feeder dock. Remove all pads and taped cushions. Insert the battery pack. Before first use, charge the battery for at least 2 hours or until the green LED light goes off. (refer to page 10 of User Guide for detailed instructions and images).

With the side of photo/document to be scanned facing upward, place the left edge of the original straight against the left edge of the feed slot and then slide the guide lever against the right side of the original. Gently insert the original into the feed slot and release as soon as it begins to feed. Wait until the indicator light stops blinking before inserting and scanning the next original (refer to page 15 of User Guide for detailed instructions and images).

Q: How do I turn on the Wi-Fi?
A: Turn Wi-Fi mode on by sliding the Wi-Fi switch on the side of the scanner to the ON position. Wait approximately 40 seconds until the data is indexed, the Wi-Fi Blue LED flashes, and the Wi-Fi Ready screen is displayed (refer to page 16 of User Guide for detailed instructions and images).

A: The scanner's built-in storage disc has a 128MB of space that can be used to store scanned images.

Same rules apply on an inserted microSD card, as the scanner uses the memory card for additional storage capacity.

A: microSD and standard SDHC memory cards up to 32GB are compatible with the scanner. Using a memory card is recommended for additional storage capacity; the scanner's 128MB built-in disk may fill up quickly if you are scanning a collection of items or scanning at a higher resolution.

Reviews & Community QA

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 89 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by So easy to use I have scanned hundreds of pictures and still have more to scan. My goal is to scan all the boxed pictures of past and then pass on to my kids on a disc. This is very easily accomplished with this tool. Much easier than placing each picture on a printer/scanner and waiting for it to scan. I just scan one right after the other. The pictures look great on the computer. Highly suggested for saving old pictures that are starting to fade. 09-18-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worked great I did have to return the first Pandigital Wand I purchased, and replaced it with the wand and docking station. It worked really well until the cat knocked it on the floor. Now, it won't feed, but I am confident in the product and have ordered another one. 08-27-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Scanner Overall great scanner, only problem I have found is it's a little difficult moving files to Computer. Very fast and great quality scans. Thanks J 09-26-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't Work - Don't waste your money Didn't get to use during the 30 day return policy. Finally going to use it - and it doesn't charge the batteries, so it will not stayed on. And it won't charge when in the feeder dock. Also photos don't seem to want to pass through the feeder doc. And now I am stuck with it. And the company only warrants the product for 90 days. BUYER BEWARE ! ! ! ! 09-23-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by Only Scanned Once and then Wouldn't Work Bought this in 2012, took me a while to open it and try to use it. It scanned one reciept as a test and then wouldn't work again. Wasted $100. on a scanner that won't scan. 08-11-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fun! I love this thing. It scans pictures fast and clearly. It's well worth the price, and you can take it with you everywhere. 02-16-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great portable scanner, easy to use I bought one of these a year ago for my fiancé, who does a lot of genealogy research. His habit was to borrow important documents and photos from family members, then mail the items back. He had a flat-bed scanner that made it difficult to scan the pages from his mother's diaries, old yearbooks and battered documents. This easy-to-use portable scanner allows him to quickly scan just about anything anywhere. He's had fun scanning pages from his mother's diary to send to siblings and cousins so that everyone can enjoy these wonderful memories no matter where they are. Recently we met a bunch of his second cousins for dinner and brought the Wand Scanner along just in case. We used it to scan some of the vintage postcards in a cousin's collection that will be added to the book my fiancé is writing. My most recent use away from home involved scanning my dad's passport, parents' marriage certificate and decades-old photos from Brazil after my dad's funeral. I didn't even have to take the photos out of albums. Now all of us siblings can have a copy of these important documents and photos without risking damage or loss -- or squabbling over who gets what. The wand gently glided over these delicate items without any risk of damage. My stepmother was so impressed I ordered one for her. I plan to create a scanning station in my office so that I can scan and toss rather than let the paperwork pile up. It's a great idea and it's not the scanner's fault that hasn't happened yet. It's highly likely that I'm going to order another for family friends who have young children. The little darlings create a lot of artwork, and the first grader's homework is too precious to toss, but the paper is piling up! A few seconds of scanning and emailing and the grandmas will be able to see it all. The product is simple enough for a 7-year-old to use. I could scan the artwork right on the refrigerator! The only thing I don't like is that there isn't much internal storage and I haven't quit figured out which SD card I need to buy. 10-25-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super easy to use I purchased this scanner to scan old delicate family photos. I was in a hurry because these photos were on loan to me from my cousin. I have been pleasantly surprised how easy it is to use and at how fast it scans. I tried both scanning to my iPad and connecting to my PC and scanning directly to it. I liked scanning to my PC because I could name the files to keep up with who the pictures were of. But, I was very impressed with the wifi. It was very easy to connect and pictures popped up instantly. Overall, excellent product!! 09-18-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great scanner I got a whole years worth of receipts done in a day. What I liked about it is that some of those old receipts were hard to read in my hand, but after scanning, I could blow them up and see them much better. With two computer screens you can have your accounting program open on one machine and just click to the next receipt for recording. Nice. I think this will be a time saver this year with taxes. 09-17-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by DO NOT BYE - negative star if possible I got this pandigital scanner last December and loved it. Then the docking station broke in April. I contacted Sunglow, who now owns Pandigital and they told me to return it for exchange. I have been waiting ever since, 5 months so far, calling weekly for an update. They say I'm on a list and they didn't return calls. I called QVC to tell them of my experience since they still sell it. They were super nice and offered to replace it, but I no longer have it, Sunglow does. Reporting Sunglow to BBB also. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM Pandigital!! 08-27-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by Read specs but be aware This is a great product. Had one from 2 years ago and it worked very well scanning to an SD card. Did probably 3,000 scans all sizes This one advertised scan to SD. "You can scan directly to a computer via the included microUSB cable or a microSD card (not included" Could have been a 5 star! NOT! Very disappointed because that is what i needed. Sent it back. Too bad and I am out the shipping charges! 08-06-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Genealogy I have had this scanner a few weeks now and it works great. Miles ahead of the one I bought a few years ago. I used the docking station to scan in old concert ticket stubs and it worked great as long as the ticket was flat. For a few that were bent I used the scanner itself. Since I am into genealogy, I took the scanner to the library with me and used it to scan pages of different books that related to my family history. It fit easily into my purse and saved me lots of quarters from the copy machine! I love the little screen that lets you see if you have gotten an image. This scanner glides so much more smoothly than the older version. Out of about 80 scans only one came out a bit crooked, all the rest were perfect. I have not tried sending the images by wifi but simply connecting the usb cord to the computer (like you would a digital camera) worked fine. I think this would be a great gift for any genealogists out there. 07-21-13
