    Dear ubiman,

    I did try that, over and over again. To be honest I lost count. What I am left with is, a blinking red light but it still does not work. Have you dealt with that before can you or anyone else help before I trash it (just a little frustrated with Epson).

    Thank you for trying.

    Trust me, trashing it won't solve anything, tried it before. Heheh. Never used a Epson before. Have a Lexmark and to me Lexmark suck. I am sorry that I can't help you any further. If I had it right infront of me I could probably fix it.

How do I make my Epson Perfection V33 scanner work with my mac laptop? It worked fine before I installed Yosemite. Thanks!

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

Want to connect to Mac OSX 10.6.7 but error message says it can't because Classic Environment is not supported. Using disc that came with scanner, originally purchased for older Mac. Any way I can use...

The OS X software for the Epson Perfection 610 can be found at it should work. If it does not work you can use vuescan from it costs about $40 but there is a free version which will allow you to try it out. Hope this helps.

My Epson perfection 3490 photo scanner doesn't work on leopard. It worked fine on tiger. Do I need to download new software? The CD that came with my scanner says it is for Mac 10.2 to 10.4.

I googled Epson support and found the answer. Here it is:
Macintosh Leopard Support Contact Supportrightmenudottedline.gif apple_leopard_logo.jpg
Welcome to Macintosh OS X 10.5 Leopard support for Epson products. Here you can find out how to get drivers and other Epson software for your Epson product that work with Macintosh OS X 10.5.
Check your Epson product CD to see if it already contains Macintosh OS X 10.5 drivers. If the CD indicates support for Macintosh OS X 10.5, follow the instructions that came with your Epson product to install your drivers and other software.
If your CD does not list OS X 10.5 Leopard, follow the Step-by-Step Instructions below.

My scanner perfection 1650 won't install to vista

Some people get this part confused, their is the chose operating system and then theirs chose the os version, you probably have a 64 bit o/s from the issues you are claiming. the fix here is you need 64 bit drivers. their is no official fix, but this will and probably mostlikly is the fix, a revemped or moded driver that works with your make and model scanner,

this is for TWAIN 5 support as well nothing but posative ratings, id get it soon cause rapidshare will closr the link after a given number of days passed.

Direct link to driver

thanks for using fixya.

Epson scanner 1240U

needle3000:  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 under Applications. The problem, in my case, was my ancient version of Photoshop (5.5.) from which I was running it.
 Hope that helps!
