Scanner Drivers
Oct 5, 2011

Mac 10.6.8 Where are the scanner drivers located? I installed the driver for a new scanner loaned by a friend. I do NOT like the scanner. My CS 3 program imports from the NEW scanner but does not see the old scanner. Yes, I have reinstalled the OLD scanner driver. From System Preferences, Print/Fax, I can see the OLD scanner and it works from there.

Help!!! How to rid my computer of the NEW scanner driver.

Do a search using magnifying glass . It is probably under / in the users folder .

Thanks for the suggestion but I've done the shallow and deep searches. I've looked into both the personal and the system libraries. I'm beginning to think it might even be in the application itself, so I may try trashing that. Odd that the system preferences printer/fax shows the old scanner and CS3 indicates only the new one. Both are twain.

Install Vuescan and be set forever?

An option.

Vuescan? Good idea. I have it on my computer but have no idea why I never use it.

Thanks!

Vuescan - thanks , I have the minolta quickscan 35 and this is 1st driver I have seen for it . It is a scsi 2 interface .

The bad thing is it only works on an intel Mac - my desktop is a powermac [ G-4 ] but the laptop is a duel core .
