    I have an epson 1240U scanner. Worked perfect in 10.3, but I just upgraded my parents' eMac to 10.4 (thought I was being nice), and now the epson scanner application doesn't work ("Epson Scan", the latest version 2.65), nor can I get any sort of separate TWAIN software for the 1240U to work--a last resort--with image capture.

    The Epson site's latest downloads for the 1240U say max compatibility is 10.3.x ... what's the deal!? Tiger's been out for a while now.:mad:

    Anyone know a workaround? All I need is some sort of TWAIN file so I can at least still use the scanner, regardless of whether the epson-brand scan application works or not.

    On a related note, can anyone suggest the best brand for scan/multifunction in terms of CONSISTENT updates for mac? Epson seems to suck the pooch on this front. Is HP better? Canon? What's your take?

    Welcome to the world of older hardware.

    You may want to look at Vuescan and see if that works for your needs.
