SOURCE: upgraded to MAC OS X; is there a compatible driver?

This scanner was released back in the late 90's, before Os X was released. Heidelberg discontinued support of all but their high end Nexscan scanners. So unfortunately, newer drivers were never made for this product.

Do you mean the old powerbook has the same OS as the new one, or the same epson software version?

Good luck!

SOURCE: Epson Scan Reporting "Unable to write file" when scanning a photo on a Mac.

Do you have sufficient disc space? That is the only reason you should see an error like this.

Forget about the Minolta software. It's buggy at best with OS X. Use VueScan instead. A free trial is available so you can test it before you commit to buying it.

Al-1540 only scans, wont print says-data could not be sent to pri

it seems that the computer was trying to send the data to the printer through the wrong port. i went to the control panel in windows xp, and selected printers and scanners. and added a new printer (manually) as al-1540 cs on usb port 2. it alerted me that the software was not signed, i proceeded anyways. it asked if i wanted to keep the original printer , i said yes. and the test page printed away. so i would suggest people with similar problem to keep adding multiple copies of the printer again and again on usb ports 1,2,3... etc till it prints the test page. use the copy no. indicated in the printed test page to do all your print jobs in the future.

This is usually caused by a bad Fuser unit.

Does it happen all the time?

Did you take the Toner/Cartridge out and check if there is some paper debris in side?
