As those of us who have used them know, Fujitsu’s ScanSnap line of desktop scanners are great. They’re my go-to recommendation for all of our IT clients. Lawyers love them.
Unfortunately, if you’re trying to set up one of these older models on a Mac, Fujitsu’s recommended software doesn’t work. It results in the software not being able to sense the scanner.
Here’s how to fix it….
- Download and install the S1500M version of the software here: http://www.fujitsu.com/global/support/computing/peripheral/scanners/software/s1500m-setup.html
- Download and install the latest update here: http://www.fujitsu.com/global/support/computing/peripheral/scanners/software/mac-mg32.html
That’s it! After installing this newer version of the ScanSnap Manager software, your ScanSnap should be as good as new on your Mac.
