I suggest you look at downloading and installing [VueScan|http://www.hamrick.com>. Your scanner is listed as a supported model and if you do ever update to Snow Leopard then this software will let you keep the scanner.
One last point. This is the Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) forum. You should have posted this question on the [Tiger (OS X 10.4)|http://discussions.apple.com/forum.jspa?forumID=756] forum.MacBook Pro 17, Mac OS X (10.6.4), MacPro 2x3GHz Quad-Core, Xserve G5, iPhone 4

If not, you'll need to install SANE (scanner access now easy). It works great with my Agfa Scanwise snaptouch.Mac Pro 2X3.0, 13 gigs RAM, FCP 7.0.2, KonaAJA LHe, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 4, 2010 12:10 PM (in response to Fracman60)Hi,
I downloaded the same driver file a couple of days ago, and got a file named ScanWiseSnapScan1212u.dmg.sit. Is your problem that you can't open this .sit file?
If so you can open it with "BetterZip" under OSX 10.4. That is what I did with no problem.
If the problem is using the drivers, let us know.
