Click to print the ROV Programming Codes, then scan them to:

  • Stop supplemental bar codes (see *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.
    • Before using a ROV USB cable in KBD Mode, you will also need to scan 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 have lost your copy of the guide, it can be downloaded from the manufacturer's website:


If you can't view or print the codes, you may need to first install an Adobe PDF reader program.

* 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 searching purposes. By default, the ROV scanner will include the supplemental code with the EAN-13 scan if you are not careful to prevent the scan beam from crossing over into it, or if you have not disabled supplementals.

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.
