It is very likely that the drivers for your latest OS are different to those for your previous OS, and that the OS is not upgrading them automatically as is usual with Apple OSs.
I suggest you go here: Epson Perfection V33 Scanner
select the relevant Mac OS from the drop down menu - I think it should go direct but it may not - download and all the relevant drivers and software from the page. Install the drivers from the downloaded files and then the software.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Make sure you have Adobe acrobat or similar installed so that you have PDF available on the PC. It may also be in the software for the Epson. I had a scanner a few years ago whose software excluded PDF and I ended up installing new software of a generic printer / scanner to use Adobe PDF
I googled Epson support and found the answer. Here it is:

The Epson "Perfection" 1240U Scanner won't work with Mac OS X 10.4.11 possibly due to the program it is being run from. Like you, I had the same problem: it wasn't being recognized. Epson's drivers installed and ran correctly. Scanner even appeared under Bus in USB Device Tree in System Profile. Finally, I discovered that the Scanner runs if opened directly from EPSON Scan.app under Applications. The problem, in my case, was my ancient version of Photoshop (5.5.) from which I was running it. Hope that helps!
Try to reseat or unplug and replug the usb cable for the scanner to your mac, errors indicating that the computer is not communicating with it. you can also go to apple icon then go to system prefences or system profiler, click on hardware then USB check if there is an epson scanner under USB device tree
Is this the one that you tried installing? when you opened the file do you have a sub installer folder as well? if you have sub uinstaller folder, open it up and install everything as well then try running the epson scan. keep me posted for any progress, thanks!

guys I found the driver, apparently the company changed its name to Document Capture Technology. http://www.docucap.com/index.php?/downloads/index
However, it no longer have a link for downloading tat stupid sofware which allows you to manage the scan. so, rite now, my scanner is connected and everything but i can't get it to scan any documents.... can someone post the tat... pro scan manager? software
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.
