    I'm trying to use hook a Canon CanoScan 3000F up to my PB. I've looked for drivers and software but there only seems to be support for Windows :(

    Does anyone know of a way I can scan using this scanner - Photoshop plugins, other software?

    Thanks for any help you can give! :)

    First try plugging in into your Mac, it often comes with built in drivers for these things, you should have an application called image capture in your applications folder that you can use for scanning.

    I hope this helps.

    If it doesn't show up in Image Capture I'm afraid you may have a problem. Even VueScan doesn't have it on the list of supported (Mac OS X) scanners...

    Yeah, I tried both Image Capture and VueScan to no avail. Oh well, its no big deal - I'll just have to use my aunties clunky old Dell laptop and transfer them across.

    Thanks for your help though guys! ;)
