You need to update your driver by getting the latest software in the Lexmark website here.
During software update what usually gets updated are the basic functionalities. In this case it looks like the scanner is not being updated as well. Hope this helps.
The type of printer/scanner you have (HP, Canon, Lexmark, etc) and the operating system installed on the Mac.
You can find the operating system number by clicking on the Apple Menu (top left corner of the screen) and pressing "About This Mac". In the center of this window it will say "version 10.5.8 or 10.6.2 or 10.something)".
If it's 10.5.8 - that means you are running Leopard, and you may have to download updated printer drivers from the maker of your printer.
If it's 10.6 - update to 10.6.2 (apple menu > software update).
If it's 10.6.2 - restart the computer and disconnect the scanner. Restart it and connect it. Snow Leopard should discover the correct drivers automatically.
After that, all scanning is done in the Image Capture.app (located within Applications > Utilities.
Generally if your printing postscript, you don't need to update the drivers on a Mac. But there are new drivers available for download on the website here. that said, there is not any difference between the Tiger, Leopard, and Snow Leopard versions of the driver...or much difference in the Linux driver for that matter. If what you have works, don't obsess over upgrading. They all work.
