    The title pretty much says it all.....When I try to open my scanner all of a sudden it says that the scanner driver supported by this driver is not installed, install and retry......

    WHAT TO DO NOW??

    Thanks so much

    OH, after I finally figured out the SL installation, I also did all of the software updates....

    Might help if you told us the make and model of the scanner.

    one more frustration!!!!! Computer not reading/uploading pics

    ARGHHHH

    One more frustrating thing after another......

    NOW, my computer won't recognize the camera is hooked up to install/upload the pics.... Just got Snow Leopard & it's been such a nightmare!~ Spinning beach ball daily, can't get Canon 495 to scan (and yes I did go thru that thread -thanks anyhow)

    How do I get computer to read the camera now??

    also- I know I should know this so keep yr giggles to yrselves please - but how does one disable a firewall???

    another thread suggests this for the scanning problem but I don't know how to do it. OH, when I first installed the printer, this new one camon mp495, it wouldn't work for wireless but WAS working fine with USB BEfore I installed Snow Leopard!!!

    please help!!
    thanks
