1. Help! multiple scanners in OS 10.2.6
I have an Artixscan 2500f for medium format up, and an Artixscan 4000tf
for 35mm material. I have a 400mhz G4 tower running Jaguar 10.2.5
I have a SCSI board installed, but I seldom use the external device that
requires this board.
Microtek provides (online) a download for a Scanwizard driver for the
2500f to run in Mac OS-X, the 4000tf comes with Silverfast Ai that runs
I have both softwares installed, with their plug-in's in Adobe Photoshop
7 (OS-X native)
I am having difficulty switching between scanners.
Ideally there would be one software that you could select the scanner
you wish to use. Scanwizard 7.0.1 (for OS-X) does not yet support the
4000tf, just the 4000t, so I am out-of-luck.
In general I can select the Silverfast and operate the 4000tf, however
if I quit this app, and try to select the Scanwizard plug-in to scan
with the 2500f It can't find the scanner. (The scanners are both
firewire, and the 2500 has been turned on and has completed its start-up
Sometimes Photoshop will just quit, sometimes the computer will crash
and say to restart....really frustrating.
To get the 2500f working I have to unplug it (not just turn it off),
plug it in, restart it, sometimes unplug and plug in the firewire cable,
or change firewire port, then reload photoshop and acquire through the
Scanwizard plug-in, it will finally recognize the scanner and work.
It will continue to work OK then unless I wish to switch from it to the
4000tf, then it is the same old problems again getting the 2500f up and
Not reliable in the long run.
I have had more stable operation in general for digital photo related
stuff in the past in the old OS-9, but I am not about to go back,
because Apple does not support OS-9 anymore.
I have plenty of memory at 1.3 gig, and I have about 9 gig free on my
hard drive, so I am not having a memory or storage issue.
