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

I am trying to install EverSmat Jazz+ on Apple G5 Macintosh. It is connected through RATOC's PCI to FireWire cable, yet the computer doesn't seem to find the scanner at all.

Hi Ralph
What OSX are you running on your Mac G5 and is this an Intel or Power PC? You will find that the Jazz Scanners are only supported up to G4 OSX10.3.9 and no higher.
You may get lucky and find it may work but you will get numerous crashes for no reason and the scanner will also just freeze and you will have problems with the BGCAR application that the scanner application uses.
Sorry cannot be more helpful.

I'm trying to find online driver-software to run an hp scanjet 4470c flatbed in macosx10.4.11, ['m coming up with nothing. help? thanks.

Unfortunately , Hp produces no more drivers beyond OS 9 for this excellent device , and it's a shame .
I managed to make it work under Widows 7 ( same issue , HP has no drivers ) . One of the tricks was to install a third party twain program and make the scanner run with Window's sofware ( WIA ) . I' m not aware of this is possible with Apple .
Installing a virtual compatible OS on primary hdd is another option .
Partitioning the hdd and installing compatible OS on the new partition works also .
I can' t see other possibilities .
Regards .

RE Canon scanner problem 'No driver found'. downloaded new updated software twice and got the same message. Using Apple Mac Os x (snow L.)

Pls disconnect the scanner, uninstall scanner driver and switch of the computer. After restarting, run Scan disk and then install appropriate driver for MAC OS and connect the scanner. This should work.

I ve lost the cd with the installer of my hp scanjet 2400, i ve seen here several msgs asking for the same but the solutions that we haver here do not work I NEED TO DOWNLOAD THE DRIVER FOR hp scanjet 2400...

Thsi is not the answer you are looking for but it is the truth. The answer is no. If neither of the Mac drivers listed works with your new 10.5.6 OS, then one has not been written and it is very unlikly one every will be written for an older product.   Sorry.

Canon N650U and Mac OSX

Canon only has this scanner driver in OS9 and it will run in classic mode if you are using OSX. This $40 software will work with your scanner in OSX, but for $40 you can purchase an OSX native scanner too.

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!
