    been using PS for many years but never had this happen...

    i updated to CS3 long time ago but only re-hooked up my HP ScanJet 5400c scanner recently. Installed the most recent drivers etc. Software works fine. BUT no TWAIN in Photoshop. Double checked my plug-in folder settings and the folder itself (make sure its in there) all looks good but no TWAIN in the PS File/Import menu.

    Sys: OS-X Tiger 2.66 Dual proc 4gig ram

    Any ideas? Would like to be able to scan directly into PS, ya know?

    Thank all! Really appreciate the help.

    I have CS3/Leopard and TWAIN doesn't show up as an option in my import menu. But my scanner is listed instead.

    Does your scanner name/series not show up in the import menu?

    I am still having same problem and i just updated to Leopard also. can't seem to find anyone who can respond to this. I posted this on the Adobe forum and the Photoshop forum. what's up with this?

    my scanner doesn't show up and no answer on the HP website, either.

    found the solution!

    i was having this problem with my epson scanner, and found the following solution, hope it works for you too, even though i imagine you've worked around it by now, since this is an old thread.

    Run Photoshop in Rosetta mode; Epson Scan 2.77A only runs in Rosetta mode.

    Follow the steps below to run Photoshop in Rosetta mode:
    quit photoshop.
    Open the Hard Drive, select Applications > Adobe Photoshop, then select the Adobe Photoshop icon.

    Hold down the -I keys to open the Get Info window.

    Check the Open Using Rosetta option, then close the window.

    Start Photoshop.

    good luck to all.
