How do I connect my Umax Powerlook III to my max 10.6.8 os x?

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.)

Check this link for a bit of info about the scanner. I agree: Heidelberg no longer support the model so you will have a lot of trouble finding spares - I searched a lot and the only place you can find these now seems to be e-bay. I would be tempted to say get a new scanner, but it is just possible that replacing the lamp if you could get one or cleaning the inside may help, but a scanner usually only has a few years life in it. Just possible the lamp is standard, if you can get to it and get a part number from it, perhaps we could find one online. Hope this helps :)

Driver for mac os 10.7.5

The last Mac OS X version officially supported by that scanner is Mac OS 10.4 Tiger. You *MAY* be able to get it to work under Mac OS 10.5 Leopard or 10.6 Snow Leopard but otherwise there is NO way to get it to work with 10.7, 10.8 or 10.9 since these are Intel only platforms (the scanner software is PowerPC PPC.) Your only option is to run a Windows XP virtual machine inside your Mac and to it that way. I can assist you with that if you like.

Are you getting an error/ red light on the scanner button when its on? when scanning from Paint ( File, then from scanners and cameras) does it freeze as well? or only when using epson scan? make sure cable is directly connected from the scanner to your computer, no hubs or anything.. keep me posted.

Have a nice day!!

Can't start up Konica Minolta Elite 5400 II

This problem usually occurs when the scanner software crashes, or the scanner is turned off in operation, or the computer is shut down before you quit the software, etc.  
The K-M driver software gets corrupted.
I use mine with a Mac G3 Tower and OS-X v 10.4.9.  What I do is search for all the Konica-Minolta components using OS-X spotlight and then delete them.  After reinstalling the K-M driver software and restarting the mac, the scanner should work fine.

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.
