OS X 10.6 and older scanners

Discussion in 'Scanners' started by Robert Peirce, Jan 2, 2010.

  1. I have an Epson 2450 and a Nikon 4000 I currently use under OS X
    10.4.11. My wife runs 10.5 and I am thinking of upgrading both
    computers to 10.6. Can anybody tell me if I will run into problems with
    these scanners and what to do about it?

    Definitely check out the information that Jolly Roger gave you. Another thing
    to consider, if you like, is a program called Vuescan. It is a "universal
    application" and will work nicely with a large number of scanners that might
    not be well supported by their mfr.

    Another option to consider is to create a bootable external disk with
    10.4.11 on it. Then, if there are problems, you could boot from the external drive
    when you want to run NikonScan or the Epson software.

    The only thing keeping me from moving my iMac to 10.6 is
    the fact that my Laserjet MFP M1522nf will not scan under
    10.6. I love 10.6 on my MBP, but I need at least one
    machine in the house on which I can scan.

    Vuescan doesn't seem to be able to recognize a scanner which
    is connected over the LAN. Or at least I was unable to get
    it to recognize it. Am I missing something here? I'd love
    to use Vuescan and get rid of HP's horrible software. And
    move to 10.6 as well.

    Are you posting responses that are easy for others to follow?
