I have just bought a "PF 1800 Silver" scanner from someone who used it with Windows. I am trying to use the scanner with Mac OS, but the scanner just makes a loud noise (for 10 minutes or more, if I let it). I have tried a number of combinations:
Mac OS 9.2 with the current version of CyberView and SilverFast
Mac OS X 10.2.8 with the current version of CyberView X
Mac OS X 10.3.9 with the current version of CyberView X
Mac OS X 10.3.9 with the current version of the SilverFast software
Every time I start the scanning software, the scanner just makes a loud noise for a long time (5 minutes or more). The scanner light is on. The noise does not stop, so I have to turn the scanner off and force-quit the scanner program. No matter what I try, I get the same result every time: a continuous loud noise and the program does not acquire the scanner.
I do not have any other USB devices connected. The computers I've tried are a PowerBook G3, PowerBook G4, Power Mac 9500 with G3 upgrade.
Can someone please tell me what I need to do to get this scanner to work?
