That's correct, you bought the Windows version and then downloaded the Mac drivers, had you bought the Mac version that is the software it would have come with (plus some free extras)

Good to hear you can re-use the old gears. Just a quick update on the usage of the scanner after updating with the OSX compatible software from Fujitsu.
- I used to encounter scanner flashing light problems quite frequently when using the S510 with my Windows 7 PC. I have not had such issue once since the update.
- The driver & scanner software for Mac has been very stable. No crash so far after hundreds of pages scanned.
- I've owned many scanners: flatbed, photo, and all-in-ones, this scanner is the priciest but I am glad to took the plunge to buy it. With all the other scanners I owned, they would give me issues like eating up papers constantly, scanning with vertical lines, cumbersome scanning/saving workflow, slow scanning and poor integration with OCR software. I am glad these are in the past. I am gradually digitalizing the files in the steel cabinets. I hope to see all my previous paper files be scanned by end of year.
I am grateful for the tech achievement of Apple and Fujitsu. Both of whom make life easy like nobody else.

I thought this was going to work for me also but alas after waking from sleep I still get the blinking blue light.
This is on a 2007 Mac pro 1.1 with Lion 10.7.5.
It will work after a reboot but this is not much better than having to boot snow leopard where it still works fine.
I do get tired of company's that sell you stuff, especially a $400 scanner but won't keep up the drivers.
Such is life

Just to let you know this also works for my old S500M.
I had been working happily with my unsupported scansnap software until the last IOS update, then crash!! No longer working and no support.
Thank you Alford. You have saved me £350 for a new scanner.
It does seem a pity that Fujitsu should be so shortsighted with loyal customers. I would have been happy if they told me that I was not supported but that the S1500 software should work. Great hardware and terrific performance allied with a long view for their customers is the best advert that they could have. Short sighted to make a few extra bucks and lose user satisfaction.

Worked for me also.
I have a Mac Pro Retina - just recently purchased
Had difficulty getting S510 working before your post
Fujitsu are not on the ball re driver updates and support advice
You did well to identify the solution

Hi from France everybody.
Idem for me.
I have a 2010 Mac book air just updated with OSX.8.
My scansnap 500M worked well with 10.6 but no more with 10.8
I tought i should by a "new" scan 510 m.
But my old 500 M works well with the 1500 M driver uploaded for 10.8
