"Keep that old scanner current and up to date."
Reasonable cost . Allows you to keep the old scanner going by replacing its outdated bundled software and drivers with software that is up to date.
Nothing wrong with VueScan itself, but the product requirement listings at Download.com are incorrect! A Universal Binary version is available that runs on Mac OS X 10.3.9 and higher.
I have nothing but praise for VueScan... but whoever is listing the requirements at Download.com is not paying attention!
The link provided only links to the 64 bit intel version intended only for use with 64 bit Intel based machines.
If you have either a PowerPC based Mac running Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher, or a 32 bit intel based Mac, then go to:
Scroll down th page to the table with the caption ...
" You can download other versions of VueScan for: "
... and select from the table under Mac OS X the link to...
VueScan 9 x32 beta
This is the Universal Binary version that will work on PowerPC Macs and 32 bit intel Macs.
According Hamrick Software, the minimum OS requirement is Mac OS X 10.3.9 for this version
