In need of a freeware document scanner.

Anyone know of freeware software that does unlimited # of pages at a time to PDF? That's all I need it to do.

What brand is your scanner?

I have a Brother Scanner/printer/fax, and AFAIK, there are no limitations on the number of pages you can scan to a PDF, with the included software.

Canon MF230. It's a $150 all in one laser scanner, it came with software to make it work with other programs (such as Paint) but not with standalone software itself.

What do you know, that worked, thanks! I've downloaded that same file twice before as that is the first page I went to after plugging it in but for some reason this time it worked. I mean it's a dinosaur software from the dark ages but it does the job.

I really love the free Microsoft Lens app (for iOS) to scan documents with my phone.
