    Check the Canon support pages for the software if you don't have it. You should be able to dl it and install.

    Looks like you're out of luck with LiDE 30. I've got it's big brother the LiDE 80 and it's also not supported. I'm okay for now with my current iMac, but when I upgrade to a new Mac, I'm looking at getting an all-in-one printer/scanner to kill two birds with one stone as my current printer an HP LaserJet 4M won't be compatible either.

    Here's the bad news from the Canon website:

    Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Compatibility information (Non-Compatible Scanners)

    Unfortunately, the chosen scanner model is not supported with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). For models that are supported, please see the information below.

    Compatible Scanner Models
    Drivers to support Mac OS X 10.5 will be available for the below models. Visit the Canon download site for the most up to date versions of the product's drivers and software.

    LiDE 25
    LiDE 35
    LiDE 60
    LiDE 70
    LiDE 90
    LiDE 500F
    LiDE 600F

    Scanner models released after 2007 will be compatible unless otherwise noted.
    For scanners missing from the list above, if it was released prior to 2007, then it will not be supported in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
