Difficulty with a Canon 9000F MKII scanner
Apr 16, 2013

I've installed the latest software & drivers, but it seems that no matter what I do, using Scangear the thing insists on saving scans to what seems to be a pretty random location.  I've meticulously set every place I can find to a given photo directory and yet things keep showing up in places like /private/var...  Have I missed something, or is this just going to be a PITA?  I have to literally search for each scan's output.

Oh, yes, the Scangear software crashes on exit almost every time when I click close too.

Last, but not least, the dust-killer function (supposed to be a big deal on this model) seems to be utterly useless.
