One issue with the Fujitsu ScanSnap and OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard that I forgot to mention the other day is the ABBYY FineReader that comes bundled with it.
When scanning with the version of Finereader that ships with the ScanSnap S510M and S1500M, you may get an error message like “File not created with ScanSnap”.
This is a known issue and according to this bulletin from Fujitsu Support, it will be fixed “within 2009”.
Fujitsu has assured me that they’re working on it, so hopefully we’re not talking December 31 here!
I personally do not use FineReader.. anyone have any workarounds for the Snow Leopard issue that they use? Leave a note in the comments.
Update: Thanks to reader Spike in the comments for the tip, ABBYY has released a version of FineReader Express Edition that supports Snow Leopard. More info here.
Update #2 Nov 19/09: The ABBYY FineReader for ScanSnap Snow Leopard Update is now available.
