    I have a scanner whose driver is out of date so I have turned to sane to try to get it recognized by my computer. I installed sane using MacPorts.

    It is showing some promise:

    $ sane-find-scanner
    found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0 [Hewlett-Packard], product=0x1205 [hp scanjet scanner], chip=HP4500C/4570C/5500C/5550C/5590/7650) at libusb:036:003

    But 'Image capture' does not recognize the scanner (Devices is empty). Is there a way to bind it to sane?

    I used to have to do this. It only worked in adobe acrobat. Otherwise try another scan app
