This scanner is Fast SCSI . It was made in 2001. You will need a card in your Mac for a SCSI interface. The cost of the card and scsi cable, if your Mac will accept one, will probably exceed the cost of a newer, high performance scanner. Time to move on? (Umax were not the greatest scanners even when they were made. Umax was a cheaper brand with mediocre software. So how will you get the image into the Mac once you have a connection? Power PC (OS 9) Mac software will not run on OS X.)
Magician 4.5 is available at UMAX Official Site.I
recommend that you visit Umax site and download the latest available
drivers/software and install them. Also, there is a registry fix
available, which may solve the issue.
sounds like the scanner is dead. only way to be sure that its not a software issue is to try that scanner on another machine. if you get the same issue on seperate machines, its a good bet that scanner is toast. Fortunately, you can usually go to the Salvation Army or Good will, and get a used scanner for 15 bucks, all you need is downloaded drivers and appropriate cables.
Looks like they'll let you buy Silverfast SE for just ... $49. Wow. Expensive price for just a driver.
On the premise you may not need the Silverfast software per se, just the driver, you may be able to, after investigating the legality, try a demo version of a Silverfast product and see if you can keep the driver itself after you get uninstall Silverfast.
