Hi I've been trying to set up an Epson Perfection 3490 scanner on my mother's iMac. It's an Intel with 1 gig of RAM. Given it's an intel machine I went to Epson's site for the new drivers that support the new chips. Epson offer driver 2.77a as the only driver that's for intel machines for this scanner. So, use that one. The scanner software keeps freezing and, after doing a scan (at which point you can't scan again unless you reboot) the printer (an Epson R800) stops working at all. I checked on the scanner software and drivers. They all show as version 2.73 and as PowerPC versions. Seems to explain the problems quite well. I tried re-installing the drivers and software several times and getting the download from various places. All the same effect. It's worth noting that between each install I uninstalled the previous versions. The Epson uninstaller doesn't work but I found instructions on how to manually remove the software and drivers by going round libraries and preferences to manually delete the components. But no further forward. I tried Vuescan and it works but I begrudge spending out more money (and my mother seems to prefer the Epson Scan software (when it works)) So, I have two questions. 1. Does anyone know where I can can get the actual intel drivers and software for this scanner. 2. If not does anyone know a decent budget scanner that WILL work with the intel with a minimum of fuss. Thanking you in advance.
