I googled Epson support and found the answer. Here it is:
Macintosh Leopard Support
Contact Support 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. View our Macintosh OS X 10.5 Leopard FAQs.
First I need the model of the scanner. The generic solution to scanner problem is the following: steps 1) look for accompanying CD with your scanner. It may say software, suite, or driver on the CD itself and place it in the CD tray of your PC. If there is A CD go to step 4 else go to step 2. 2) locate scanner name, model & number and add driver at the end of that model name and number in google search. 3) ***Make sure the website you go to is a reputable website***Once you've found a driver download it.
4) Make sure all connector from the scanner to the PC is connected along with the power cord. If no driver is necessary and it says hardware found then you are lucky else proceed to to step 5.
5) Run the software that you found by clicking on it this could either be from the CD or the file you downloaded. Once the software runs and executes it should discover your scanner.
6) Run a few scan and use the accompanying software .
7) if all else fails give me the specific name and model number of your scanner.
If running XP SP2, then try clicking Start > right click My Computer > properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > expand Imaging devices > right click on your Microtek ScanMaker > uninstall > Re boot > and let XP pick up the device and let the found hardware wizard configure it.
I have seen plenty of hardware that when following the devices manufacturer's instructions for install, such problems as you're having occur and XP SP2 usually will cure it, though you may still need the device manufacturer's CD (for the driver) in your optical drive.
