Earlier today, I spent many hours on the web trying to get the drivers, plug-in, etc to make my good old scanner work and I thought this might be a work around. My 'upgrade' this weekend to Snow Leopard has been a pain so far. Too many old devices, etc. I guess. Anyway, does anyone have a suggestion. Try reversing steps 2 and 3. You're the first person to have a problem, but also perhaps the first person to do step 2 and then 3 in the "corrected" order. Maybe the correct order is actually 3, 2, 3.

SANE Plus Snac: An OS X Scanning Solution for Unsupported Scanners

Thanks CoolAJ I appreciate your helpfulness. I reinstalled as you suggested but no good. The Image Capture just doesn't recognize any scanners of cameras to be connected. A couple of questions: I wonder if the scanner needs to disconnected from the MAC until after installing the 3 programs above.

Another question: I am wondering if perhaps I should delete that program? Finally, one last thought: I mean, all I have done is reinstall them on top of each other. Am wondering about the 1,3,2,3 order, etc. What difference can it make if all are already installed?

Hope this question makes sense!! Thanks again.

Okay, correction. It started working after I manually removed all Canon-related drivers and software, and rebooted! So perhaps you should mention that in the instructions above. I use this plug-in too: I dusted off my Lide 30 and I haven't had this think work since Leopard had to use it with vuescan.

This is a nice free alternative and the software is nicer! Worked perfect on Snow Leopard!!! Thanks for posting. I just went through all the steps as is, listed above.

Canon LiDE 50 Driver

The Canon website said it wasn't supporting the LideScan 30 scanner on Snow Leopard, but I did a last ditch search for "lidescan 30 snow leopard" and got this page. You're a genius. Thanks for making someone's life a little better. Does anyone know if this works on Lion? Haven't upgraded to Lion yet. K and A Alesandrini.

Scanning Documents & Photos on a Mac

Instructions worked perfectly in Lion for my LideScan You're a life saver. Hi CoolAJ86 thanks for the post. Works great for me on Lion For command line use, restart was not necessary. For some reason my scans are all skewed. The preview looks fine but the actual scan looks like someone moved the photo during the scan.

Anybody else seeing this? That was my problem when I saw that. It works great with my iMac i7 and Lide 30, but all the saved files like jpeg, png etc. Only the preview is ok! I have the same problem with skewed scans on lion on an i5 mac book pro and Lide Previews are fine. Same here. Preview looks great. Scan is skewed. Hi Thanks a lot!! Works great. I have listed my I have listed my experience for others. I followed the steps for OS X I also had the scanner connected to the MBP while installing.

After step 4 before the 'Reboot' step , the scanner came to life. Launched Image Capture, scanner started perfectly, no problems with the image. Have just done this and have not rebooted yet - but it is working perfectly. Fantastic, thanks a Million! Hi folks! I also get my images skewed while the p I also get my images skewed while the previews are well.

But - what is even stranger - sometimes, without any logical explanation, the are well but just 2 o 3 images in 25 or 30 scans Most of them are skewed Do you know why? Any solutions? Does anybody have an explanation or better a solution?? Unfortunately I have I'd like to try it again, but how do I uninstall the stuff I did in Steps 2, 3, and 4? Where are they on the computer? I'm a clueless user! Hint for older scanners: Jeff Fox.

I am running Snow Leopard Software installed with no issues. I did not have to reboot. I also have the problem of scans with a resolution of greater than 75 dpi being skewed.

Running This worked very nicely when first performed, but now a week later I go to scan another document and get only "failed to open a session on the device" Not sure why this is. Anyone found a solution to this? I checked the lock switch and made sure it is unlocked. Made me wonder, what is the value of that switch? Well, some of them anyway
