Question about Microtek SCANMAKER 5900 Flatbed Scanner

Open Question

Scanwizard can't find the scanner

MY scanmaker 5900 works fine on Mac OS9 machine, but it can not find the scanner when I use it on Classic 9 on my G5 Imac. It does the same thing when I install the OS 10 version. When I first got the scanner it worked fine. Now I get nothing. Also the installation log says the software was successfully loaded.

SOURCE: can I install microtek scanmaker 8700 on imac

Microtek's last version was for 10.4 and is worth trying on 10.6. drv_sw5_v7_565_ad.dmg
Otherwise the popular VueScan supports virtually every scanner on the market. There is a free trial version to test your scanner here.
I've used VueScan for over 5 years and it's much easier to use than than Silverfast. The only downside is you can't scan from inside PhotoShop etc. as it's a standalone application and not a plugin

I need a driver for my new Mountain Lion, Mac, to run the 9800XL

Microtek sent me this link to ScanPotter 1.07:

It's not the same ScanWizard Pro software that used to work on my PowerPC G5 running OSX 10.5 Leopard, but at least it enables me to use my ScanMaker 9800XL with my late 2011 17" MacBookPro and OSX 10.8.2 Mountain Lion. Get it, it works!

Microtek ScanMaker 5950

Are you ussing it witha Mac? I could not make this scanner work on System 10.4.x. Had to download software from Microtek and use it with system 10.3.x but it works better with Classic System 9.2 The light stops blinking when used with the older systems and the scanner arm moves. My problem is that the light does not come on.
