This issue might be caused by a compatibility issue between Apple's Security Update 2008-002 and Rogue Amoeba software. If you have installed one of Rogue Amouba's applications: Instant Hijack, Airfoil, Audio Hijack Pro or Nicecast, please see the information on Rogue Amoeba's web site regarding this issue.

Brother MFC 6800 won't send scan results to iMac. The scan function appears to work, although nothing appears when using iPhoto or Picass for Mac. I am using Mac OX 10.6.5


Hi
I had the same problem. I knew the scan function was not broken because I could use it with my old PowerMacG4. But no go with the new Intel iMac, and no amount of driver updating or other OS fiddling solved anything.
I luckily found another MFC-6800 to test. And to my surprise scanning is working, and printing is much improved (no more "offline printer" when it's clearly online). The difference between the two: firmware version. My MFC is dated from 2001, while the other one is from 2004. For the date see the label behind the machine.
Now, why does scanning work on my old PowerMac G4? Apple probably changed something in the Intel drivers or the USB circuitry, or Brother didn't adhere to proper standards in 2001. Or it may be as stupid as an inability of the older Brother board/firmware to deal with USB 2 levels, even throttled down to USB 1.1. Who knows? Anyway I'm in contact with Brother and hope to get a way to upgrade the firmware in my printer.
Did you try scanning with Graphic Converter? Some Adobe products need updates to properly scan in Snow Leopard.
Hope this help.
