CardIris for ScanSnap Updated For Mac Lion

CardIris for ScanSnap Updated For Mac Lion

Back in July, Mac OS X Lion was released, and Fujitsu was ahead of the curve and had already released Lion ScanSnap drivers.

Most things were working fine, with the exception of CardIris, the business card app that ships with ScanSnap scanners.

It looks like Fujitsu has now posted the CardIris for ScanSnap Update as of the end of August, and you can download it here.

I haven’t tried it yet, so feel free to let us know your experience in the comments positive or negative.

Some (all?) users have reported a problem saving cards even after applying the Lion update. Awesome DocumentSnap reader Fred contacted IRIS support, and this is how they responded:

Here is the link to download the Intel based 3.6.6 software which is updateable and will install on Lion. You can then download and install the 4.0.13 update. If you have a problem with the download then use Firefox, available at to download the software, Safari may cause an incomplete or corrupt download.

Fujitsu – CI3.6.6

Fujitsu – Update 4.0.13 – If needed

I'm having trouble exporting a card to my contacts on my mac. I scanned on scansnap s1500M. I have Mavericks. I can't export. It is my first time trying to do it. The only instructions I could find here… didn't look exactly the same as my cardiris version or get me the result.

Any suggestions where to look & did you go over this in any of your classes or tutorials? Thanks
