It may be a great time to be a Mac user thanks to wide software support, but one area manufacturers could still do a better job is with scanner drivers. Thankfully, they don't have to, because VueScan does it for them.
While you're tapping your fingers in anticipation waiting for OS X Mountain Lion to arrive this month, you might want to consult Apple's upgrade page again -- it's been updated and a few otherwise capable 64-bit models appear to left hanging.
All of the Macs at our company print to two very expensive network photocopier/scanners: the Canon ImageRunner 2270 and the Canon ImageRunner 3025. We just upgraded the office to Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard, but there are no Snow Leopard drivers on Canon’s website! So now we can’t print at all! We called Canon, and they told us to downgrade to Leopard or purchase a newer photocopier because ours have been discontinued.
Following up on last month’s Release Candidate preview version, Paragon Software Group has taken the wraps off the release version of NTFS for Mac OS X 8.0, the latest version of its Mac driver to read & write to Windows disks.
Mac users who regularly exchange files with Windows users are constantly stymied by one of Mac OS X’s biggest limitations -- you can read NTFS-formatted Windows disks, but you can’t write to them. Thanks to Paragon’s NTFS for Mac, you can, and the latest 8.0 version brings faster read & write operations as well as 64-bit support for Snow Leopard 10.6.
