without knowing any of the needed information
There is really no way to answer that

What format is the output of the scanner ?
a tif or ppm or pdf or ??? what ?????

and HOW !!! are you trying to access the file form a linux OS to a windows OS ?
copy to a usb drive ?
copy to a cd ?
samba share ?
how ?

I would say that you have to setup your office to automatically save documents in msformat.
Go to Tools>>Options>>Load/Save>>General & change the way it saves.
Also check the settings that John VV said to check.

I actually tried all the formats you said.
I use FTP to send the file over LAN
I also used FTP to upload the file to my site, but it won't work
I'm actually new to linux :\

here are the commands I used to scan :

Sudo scanimage --resolution=50 --format tif > ~/test.tif
Sudo scanimage --resolution=50 --format JFIF > ~/test.jpg
Sudo scanimage --resolution=50 > ~/test.pnm

Please tell me if there is something wrong with them

Thanks in advance
