You need to isolate the problem, there are several things that you need to consider. Please follow the steps below:

1. Make sure that the Acer Scanner Flatbed 13 is compatible with the Operating System of your Mac book (i.e. OS 10.3.X, 10.4.X or 10.5.X)

2. Check the physical connection. You may try connecting the scanner into different USB port of the computer. If your computer has USB 2.0, it would be best if your scanner supports USB 2.0 as well.

3. Try using different USB cable just to make sure that the cable is not defective.

4. If the scanner is not a Plu-n-Play in Mac, try to uninstall/install the driver

5. Try connecting the scanner into different computer to make sure that the scanner is working correctly.

If the scanner is brand new but didn't work in two computers, you may RMA the device and ask for a replacement.

Have a great day!

    I need an updated driver for my scanner. Mine is for windows 95/98.

    Not all scanners can run on new hardware, check if Acer has install programs for your current set up, if not the scanner may need ot be replaced.

    Driver acer flatbed 13 for mac

    Go to or search for "VueScan".  It is a generic scanning program that will allow you to use the Acer scanner with the MacBook.  I think it costs about $30 (US).  I had the same problem with an old Acer scanner that had no drivers for OS-X and VueScan solved it.

    You can go to Acer's drivers site and download the driver detector. It should recognize your scanner and let you download the proper drivers.
