Question about Epson 2580 Perfection Photo Scanner

1 Answer

Up until I attached my Epson scanner to a new Apple Mac today, it always scanned and delivered an icon to my desktop. An office friend says I need to use Preview, Photographs and Import. Delivering an icon is the simple way. What do I need to do so this will happen? My Name is Marshall Coleman and my email address is Thanks 4/19/11.

Scanner won't send a copy to computer

Good choice going to a Mac. Open Scan Icon in Applications and go from there. It's easy. Always refer to the manual with new stuff.

We would like to connect our Epson GT-15000 scanner to our new Imac 29inch. Although we do have the scanner connected to a G5, we seem not to have any sfotware for Mac, only the Windows CD. Where can we...

No additional drivers are necessary. Your Epson GT-15000 is listed in "Printer and Scanner software available for download," .

To add your scanner, simply plug it in. If it does not appear in Apple Menu > System Preferences > Print & Scan, you may need to run Software Update (also from the Apple Menu, second item down), and then click the plus ( + ) button in the lower-left of Print & Scan, select your scanner, and then add the printer.

The default scanning application in OS X is Image Capture. After completing the above steps, open Applications > Image Capture and you should see your scanner listed on the left.

My friend is wanting to scan a document but she does not find an icon which starts up the scanner device. What does she look for to open the scanner

Most word processing programs (microsoft office, open office, corel) have Import funtions. Have her open a word processing program and under "Insert" select "Picture". The next option should be from file or scan (twain). Select 'Scan". She may be directed to select the "Twain" device where she'll select her Epson All in One. Upon selecting her scanner, it should scan her document right into the word processing program. Have her save it as a picture or publish as a .pdf file. Once saved, she can email the file. Hope this helps you and your friend. Best of luck!

You need to download a "Twain Driver and Epson Scan Utility" from
the Epson Website.

But before you start downloading the Twain Driver we need to delete
the previously installed driver in your computer.

1.) Click and open the MAC or Apple Hard drive / Application and trash Epson Scan and Epson Scanner Monitor ( drag it to your trash )
2.) MAC hard drive / Library / Image Capture / Twain Data Source., we need to trash ( *.ds file )
3.) MAC hard drive / Library / Application Support., trash the Epson Scanner Module
4.) Disconnect the connection ( USB ) between the printer and your MAC.
5. ) Empty your Trash bin and restart your MAC

After the restart we can now download and install the Twain driver to your MAC.

After the installation try to launch Epson Scan under Application
