    No, it not human error...

    I just can't get a hold of HP 4470c drivers for the Mac (OS9). HPs site requires ordering them, as it not offered as a download any more. I just need the TWAIN drivers, as I acquire in Photoshop. Does anybody have them? I have tried almost every download site under the sun, but to no avail. I CHALLENGE you to find them :D

    Also, this is just a shot in the dark, but since scanners generally have the same innards, is there any drivers that could enable this scanner to work in OS X? Like maybe a newer scanner that was made for OS X, but has generic drivers. I dunno. Its worth a shot.

    Thanks

    I've been successful with VueScan software for running older HP scanners in OS X where specific drivers are not available. VueScan supports most flatbed scanners on the market as well as many older models. U can find it on www.versiontracker.com. ;)

    unfortunately, my scanner is one of the few that vuescan does not support

    Close... any other ideas??
