Needle3000:  The Epson "Perfection" 1240U Scanner won't work with Mac OS X 10.4.11 possibly due to the program it is being run from. Like you, I had the same problem: it wasn't being recognized. Epson's drivers installed and ran correctly. Scanner even appeared under Bus in USB Device Tree in System Profile. Finally, I discovered that the Scanner runs if opened directly from EPSON Scan.app under Applications. The problem, in my case, was my ancient version of Photoshop (5.5.) from which I was running it.
 Hope that helps!

I have downloaded the scanner software for the canon CanoScan N670U more than once, but it is not opening or running on my mac.


This was a problem with Mac's and this scanner (are you using 10.3 OS)?
Try unplugging the scanner then replugging it in, sometimes after the mac sleeps and is woken, the scanner will not be recognised (happened on XP and Vista PC machines as well)
also try using image capture on the mac rather than the canoscan toolbox software.

If you want to give installing the drivers and software another go, download the software and driver remover tool from canon's site before re-installing

RE Canon scanner problem 'No driver found'. downloaded new updated software twice and got the same message. Using Apple Mac Os x (snow L.)


Pls disconnect the scanner, uninstall scanner driver and switch of the computer. After restarting, run Scan disk and then install appropriate driver for MAC OS and connect the scanner. This should work.

I'm trying to scan a photo from my HP700 onto my MacBook and I have the CD that came with my printer - but still can't do it. The Mac does not recognize the disk.


try downloading scanner driver compatible with mac os here. though unlikely, it is still possible the the cd inculded with your scanner does not have mac os compatible driver.

Using on an Intel MAC machine???


It doesn't appear as though that scanner is supported under Mac OS X... No drivers are available anywhere, and it's not a popular enough brand for any to be included in the OS. Sorry! I had an older Canon scanner that wasn't recognized by anything in OSX, so I feel your pain!
Please rate this answer if you feel it has helped you!
