If you are a Mac user, you probably know that the latest version of Mac OS X, 10.8 Mountain Lion, has been released today via the Mac App Store. As I have done with Lion and the fun that was Snow Leopard, I am providing this post as a way to share our experience with the Fujitsu ScanSnap on Mountain Lion. Is it working OK for you?
ScanSnap Mountain Lion Compatibility
I haven’t been able to find a general ScanSnap Mountain Lion page, but there is one for each model. Here’s what I’ve found:
- ScanSnap S1500/S1500M: Supported. See this page and/or instructions below.
- ScanSnap S1300/S1300i: Supported. See this page and/or instructions below.
- ScanSnap S1100: Supported. See this page and/or instructions below.
- ScanSnap S510M: Will be supported by the end of July. See this page and/or instructions below.
- ScanSnap S300M: Will be supported by the end of July. See this page and/or instructions below.
Preparing Your ScanSnap For OS X Mountain Lion
To do that:
- Make sure ScanSnap Manager is running
- Go to Help > Online Update
- Follow the instructions
If you want to see this in video form, I’ve created a short video.
If for whatever reason you can’t online update, this Fujitsu page has the drivers for manual installation.
ABBYY FineReader and CardIris
It looks like the new security restrictions in Mountain Lion can cause ABBYY and CardIris to have a problem when updating to new versions. This Fujitsu page has a workaround.
I haven’t been able to find anything specific on Acrobat 9, but the comments on this Roaring Apps page do not make me hopeful. If you have any information, please leave it in the comments.
I am not going to have a chance to install Mountain Lion for a bit. How is it working for you with your ScanSnap, both the scanner and the included software?
I’d appreciate it if you left a comment either way. I’ll update this post as new information becomes available.
