Apple only states that OS X works on the appropriate hardware meeting the system requirements, and offers no guarantee of compatibility with third-party hardware or software. The best thing to do when there are such upgrade problems is to make a fresh installation on a reformatted hard drive. Posted on Sep 19, This has happened to us as drive belts fail in printers and scanners. I had one of those scanners attached to an OS 9 system for a long time. ThanX to Snow Leopard The manufacturers are supposed to provide their drivers independently or can provide them to Apple for inclusion with an OS release.

ls Back ina guy named David Linker did develope a driver that was for scanners that have been abandoned by their manufacturer. Apple can’t make Agfa do anything to help support their product.

I know the industry needs to keep me selling new stuff which I love to buy, but it hurts my eco feeling to now through something maac which is 6 or 8 years old and still technically is perfect Vendors upgrade products they make a profit on, or to ensure customer goodwill for future purchases.

Answer questions, earn points and help others Answer questions. Some HP Printers are not getting new drivers. Before my Agfa I had a Umax and before that another. However, it looks like your scanner is supported by the TWAIN SANE interface, which I believe works with Snow Leopard, so the snapscqn community seems willing to support your orphaned scanner, where the manufacturer is not.

You can’t post conmments that contain an email address. In the latter case you really have mxc two options: Apple hasn’t issued anything yet that sorts out the malfunctioning of this product with the Time Machine, under Snow Leopard!!!

It’s worth a thousand words. Apple said there would be many issues with older drivers and that many companies would have tocuh upgrade their programs and drivers to work well or even work at all.

It might take longer than a month. I was really not happy when the adapters quit working with Tiger, apparently because the USB adapters couldn’t provide the ADB drivers required that Apple finally removed from the new OS They could save MORE environment if they supported larges installed base peripherals.

Posted on Jan 02, Note the date that the last version of the driver was posted 7 years 11 months ago! You can’t post answers that contain an email address. Reply I have this question too I have this question too Me too Me too. Agfa’s OS X drivers for that scanner were a disaster. But your example was of a currently shipping product Time Capsule that is supported by SL.

The very same driver problems were part of the Vista melt down.

There is quite a difference when a company says it supports a product Apple does support Time Capsule and a company that doesn’t support a product at all Agfa has not released drivers or updates for 8 years. Downgrade back to Leopard or buy a new and supported scanner.


You should contact Agfa’s tech support to see if they plan to update their driver or if they have abandoned the product. So a fresh installation at least can determine if the problem is with OS X and existing Apple hardware.

The obsolete 32 bit drivers problem is going to continue and could actually get worse.

Still others upgrade systems successfully but fail to check if their mission critical third-party software will be compatible or to upgrade that software when possible for compatibility. I just want to remind you to the situations where Apple came with new OS’s or ports and lots of stuff did not work. Most new system problems that arise result from users z dysfunctional existing systems and not repairing the hard drive and permissions prior to upgrading.

Our older devices are not going tohch a landfill. If a firmware update is required you will hear about it automatically via the Airport Utility if you check regularly. For that matter, the desktop Mac that my wife uses is not supported even by Leopard.
