*illustration below) from being included with
ISBN (EAN-13) book scans.
Turn the scanner's "good read" beep on or off. DO
NOT disable the beep off until you are certain that you have learned how
to reliably scan. With the beep off, you will not know if a scan is
successful or not. You must always pay attention to your search results
to be sure that they are for the correct ISBN.
- Restore the scanner to its Factory Defaults.
- Factory Defaults will require that you again scan disable supplementals,
and set the beep state back to your preference.
- You will need to scan Factory Defaults whenever you switch between
using the scanner with a computer and mobile device.

in the special codes printed on page 14 of the USB Cable's quick start
guide: "delay is 500" and "(STX) is False." If you

* What are Supplemental codes?
Books and other media typically have a supplemental barcode printed to
the right of their EAN-13 barcode. This barcode is only useful to the publisher
(it typically represents their MSRP), and cannot be used for any listing and

over into it, or if you have not
Here's an example of an EAN-13 barcode being scanned with the smaller
5-digit supplemental barcode (52995) printed to the right of it:
Computer ROV users that use the AutoISBN driver do not need to disable supplemental
codes, but it's ok if they do. It will slightly speed up the scan transmission
rate, and it will free up some scanner memory when the scanner is used in
batch (portable) mode.
