When scanning multiple sheets with my scanner's ADF, I get an error message

Applies To
HPLIP Version: 
All
Printer(s): 
All printers equipped with a scanner and an automatic document feeder (ADF)
Linux OS Distribution(s): 
All
Solution: 

When scanning with the ADF, you must use "batch mode". In 'scanimage', use a command line such as:

$ scanimage -b --batch-count=n --source ADF

where 'n' is number of pages to scan.
 

In 'xsane', use the provided batch scan mode.
