    Exclamation Installing a HP Scanjet 3500c onto a Powerbook


    I just switched to an apple but I'm encountering some problems. The main problem is that I cannot install my HP 3500c scanner onto my powerbook even after the software install. HP said that this scanner is Mac OS X capable so I thought there weren't supposed to be any problems. I always get this error message saying that the scanner cannot be started or initialized because it cannot find the scanner even after three or four restarts while the scanner is plugged into the USB port. Somebody please help me urgently, as this is for my work... Thanks in advance.

    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    I'm using a Microtek scanner on my pb, I used to get the same problem when I only had the software installed. But the problem was solved when I downloaded and installed the driver file.

    Hope that helps.
