This video on Installing A ScanSnap Without An Optical Drive is part of a series of quick videos on paperless tips and topics. View more in the series here.
Both the MacBook Air and the new Mac Minis do not come with a DVD drive. I actually agree with this move as optical media is both annoying and old school, but what do you do when you have some hardware with drivers on a DVD?
I recently had to install the drivers for my ScanSnap S1300 on my new MacBook Air, so I made a video about two options that you have:
- Request a download from Fujitsu
- Use DVD Sharing and Remote Disc to access another Mac’s optical drive
Do you have any other ways of loading drivers on a machine with no optical drive other than the ones that I’ve outlined here?
