Question about Epson Perfection 1240U Flatbed Scanner
I have used my scanner for years on my PC. I have tried to download drivers to use it on my Mac os x. the drivers download but I can't get it to work. I tried the software that came with the scanner originally and it says it is not supported. Any ideas?
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!
