    I have a Canoscan 4400F which is not recognised by my MBP (early 2008) or my iMac (early 2007). (Error message is 'Unable to find driver'.) Despite installing various drivers which are supposed to be Leopard compatible, no luck so far.

    Does anyone know of a driver which will work, or alternatively if I have to replace, a recommend a reasonably priced scanner which is Leopard compatible. Scanner will primarily be used for scanning documents for archiving and old photo prints for adding to iPhoto.

    Thanks

    Peter

    I have a Canon LIDE 25 which is supposedly Leopard compatible....it worked great for a couple months, then one of the 10.5.x updates broke it and I couldn't make it work again no matter waht. I tried Vuescan, it worked great with the scanner, and I bought a copy. Happy camper ever since. It would be nice if Apple made scanner support easier, so you didn't need 3rd party software though
