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 would like to find a driver for epson perfection scanner 1240u


I had the same problem.

First solution: Use Ubuntu instead, it works great with 64 bit.

Second solution: Download the full version of vuescan from a torrent site. (This program has a driver that will work with thousands of scanners) The demo version puts watermarks in your scan. Why pay for a program that makes your scanner work when Epson should get their lazy ***** to work making drivers for 64 bit?
