HP Scanjet 4070 save file option issues solved

By GuGoRaKu

  1. After re-installing my HP 4070, the scanning software showed only TIFF and
    Compressed TIFF options while earlier I had JPG and BMP.

    To get back BMP and JPG options, I deleted the Registry entry under HKEY_USER....
    Software\Hewlett-Packard\DigitalImaging\CUE Settings\0000_4070]
    "ScanPreferencesSettings", and Run the HP Scanning software.
    It will recreate the Key with default settings and the next time you start the
    HP scanning software you will have all the four save options.

    Backup registry before trying this! Modify the registry at your own risk!
    You can highlight the Hewlett-Packard entry and export from file menu to a
    desktop file for backup of just this entry. If something seems wrong, double
    click on the exported file to restore the original settings in the registry.

    Happy Scanning! - Raj

    I dont't see the options for file type


    I just bought an HP Scanjet 4070. After I install it and HP Image Zone v.4.0 that comes with the scanner, I don't see the options for choosing save file type, such as TIFF, etc. It automatically saves the scanned photos to JEPG. How I can change the option, and saved location?

    Are you using the HP Image Zone, or other software to support the different file types?

    Thanks very much.

    Image zone


    I tried Image Zone and did not like it. So I uninstalled it. This did not uninstall the scan engine. Now I use Picasa2 by Google. Its a simple and great image management and simple edit utility and its free! Check it out and let me know what you think.. you will also save a few 100 MB of disk space.

    Next time you re-install the scanner, just use the add harware option from control panel and then drop in the HP Cd for the drivers. You will just get the scanner without Imagezone.
