Scanner Software

October 31st, 2012

I have an old AGFA SnapScan 1212u scanner and it’s always worked fine for me. However, when I upgraded my MacBook Pro to Snow Leopard, the scanner no longer worked. I remember looking for a solution at the time, but didn’t find one. In the meantime, I had the scanner attached to an old Mac Mini that I currently have attached to my computer. If I wanted to scan something, I’d remote into the Mac Mini, open scan from the remote computer and then move the file to MacBook Pro. It worked, but it also meant I had to keep my scanner next to the TV! Not ideal…

I did another search recently for some scanner software and discovered this post. The post gives two possible ways to get old scanners working on new operating systems. The first way is free, but involves a little more work than I wanted to do. The second way was to install Vuescan software. That’s what I chose. I spent the $40 and within a few moments I was scanning. If I had a little more time I’d probably go the free route. It involves installing binaries, and would be fun to configure. But, alas, we don’t always have the luxury of time…

So far I’ve been very happy with my purchase of the Vuescan software.
