Update Nov 13, 2009: The Snow Leopard fix has been released. See this for more information!
Since Apple’s new version of OSX – 10.6 aka Snow Leopard is released today, I thought I’d make this post so that we can share our experience using the Fujitsu ScanSnap with it.
I haven’t found any indication that 10.6 is officially supported by Fujitsu yet, but I have seen mixed reviews online.
Update: Fujitsu has reached out to me and also posted on Twitter via their @ScanSnapIT account the status of Snow Leopard support. For ScanSnap S300M, S500M, S510M, and S1500, scanning is supported on Snow Leopard, but Quick Menu does not work and Scan to Folder currently does not work.
Fujitsu Customer Support has posted this bulletin listing the workarounds and support status. They expect it to be fixed “within 2009”.
However, I also came across this ars technica forum thread saying that at least one user has had problems scanning to PDF using the ScanSnap S510M.
I haven’t tried Snow Leopard myself yet and haven’t heard back from Fujitsu regarding their support for it, but have you had any experiences one way or the other with it? Leave your feedback in the comments.
Update: Just came across another tweet from user @TaxMan45 saying that he chatted with Fujitsu Support and that the ScanSnap 510M is compatible with Snow Leopard, but not in Quick Menu mode.
Update: There is an update from Fujitsu that the Snow Leopard fix will be ready at the end of November.
