I have an HP Scanjet 3400c scanner that I used with my Windows PC. Since switching to Mac, it's been a big paperweight. I cannot find a Mac driver for it anywhere. I've tried HP's website, and this scanner is not one of the scanners listed in VueScan's list of compatible scanners.

Is there any hope? Or am I doomed to just look at the scanner and marvel at how it once worked?


iMac 20", 2.66 GHz, 4 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.7), FCE version 4.0.1

    Have you looked at running Windows in Parallels or VMware? Also Codeweavers CrossOver may work with the Scanjet's Windows software without needing a full Windows system.

    I haven't tried these with scanners but I do know that Parallels worked well with my GPS device when Garmin hadn't yet released Mac GPS applications.

    I have a Scanjet 3570c which does have Mac software , only it was last updated to support 10.4. Anyway I have installed it on Leopard and Snow Leopard and it seems to works for my needs. If it didn't I was considering ditching my ageing Deskjet 3940 for an All-In-One Photosmart 4580 which has everything I need, inc wireless, for a little over £50 and the drivers are listed in Snow Leopard.
