Question about Samsung SCX 4521F All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Cannot operate scanner

Hi there! i just got the samsung scx-4200. the driver works fine with my Mac OSX but i am having difficulties in using the scanner as there is no application given in the cd driver. I already installed the Mac TWAIN whatever it is and still no scanner. or at least there's nothing written in the manual as to how to use it. i tried using it in my image capture and adobe photoshop cs --so far nothing's happening? are there other ways (programs i could download perhaps) that i could help me operate my scanner in my Mac computer?

I have an iMAC - and my SCX-4521F won't scan using this computer. It did fine on my PC (Win XP).
The print function seems to work just fine but I can't seem to scan anything onto mu mac using this printer/scanner

Is the SCX-4725FN compatible with Mac OSX Lion? It works fine with Snow Leopard and earlier versions.

Samsung have only released up to 10.6 at the moment. As per link below there is no supported driver available for 10.7 OSX Lion

Mac install

i've called Samsung about this issue about 7 times, and they told me to download the driver from their website. I told them that doesn't work and they let me know that if that driver doesn't work then it will likely never work.

They've made it sound like they've stopped creating drivers for mac support.
