HT4505 I have 4 accounts on my Mac Pro running Mavericks.  From one account I can scan with my Epson NX420, but the other three accounts do not see the scanner.  Can print from all accounts.

Sorry, I was not given the option of posting to a Maverics community.  I have 4 accounts on my Mac Pro running Mavericks.  From one account I can scan with my Epson NX420, but the other three accounts do not see the scanner.  Can print from all accounts.

Hi there Ira Fletcher,
I would recommend taking a look at the troubleshooting steps found in the article below. Note: While the article was written for printer issues, many of the same troubleshooting steps apply to scanners as well.

  • I have an Earlly 2008 Mac Pro running Mavericks. I recently upgraded to Mavericks; downloaded software for a new Brother Printer; CleanMyMac 2., and Open Office.

    This is my first post. Hope I am entering it correctly.
    Open Office requires Java which exposes Macs to Hackers. A recent MacWorld magazine recommends removing Java which is not loaded with Mavericks. Could my Mac Pro been comprised with Java being present?
    Other Problems:
    When Time Machine is backing up the Icon in the Menu Bar no longer turns to indicate it is backing up.
    In System Preferences > Security and Privacy > General, Option and Advance selections are dimmed. Unable to make selections.
    Opening Apps very slow.
    If I make a search and then select one of the items from the search, when I close the item it goes to the top of the search items and not back from where it was selected to open. So it is no longer in alphabetical order from the search items. I cannot drag it to its original position in the list.
    The App CleanMYMac 2 keeps opening a window asking me if I want to open the App.

    Could my Mac Pro been comprised with Java being present?
    Java running inside your Browser, accessible from unknown Web sites is the threat.
    Having Java Present is not a significant threat. If you run only trusted Applications, the threat is very small.
    When Time Machine is backing up the Icon in the Menu Bar no longer turns to indicate it is backing up.
    Apple realized that spinning Icon punished screen refresh, and changed the design. Now a subtle triangle appears and stays still while the backup is in progress.
    In System Preferences > Security and Privacy > General, Option and Advance selections are dimmed. Unable to make selections.
    Did you click the big Lock to authenticate as Admin?
    The App CleanMYMac 2 keeps opening a window asking me if I want to open the App.
    Many Users consider Apps like clean my mac to be dangerous. These Apps have a habit of throwing away parts of Mac OS X that are needed for proper operation. No one needs to run such stuff -- Mac OS X takes care of cleaning itself.  The space freed does not generally improve performance, and throwing away caches usually slows down your Mac (until the caches are re-created and then the so-called problem has not been solved).

  • Can I create separate folders to save media on my Airport Time Capsule? Issue is I have a 256GB HDD Mac Pro Retina which is almost full. TC will only take backup of my HDD. So where would I save my photos and videos from my iPhone and iPad?

    It is a hard one.. laptops with small drives are a pain.
    What you need is a home media server.
    Some people use a PC running itunes for cost.. but that is nothing like as good as using a Mac mini.. they make great little HTPC device.. you can plug in large hard disks and store all your files and media. And share it with the network.. Read up apple's instructions on home sharing.
    https://www.apple.com/au/support/homesharing/
    For cost you can buy a mini from 2011 or 2012.. I would not recommend earlier ones.. the advantage of 2012 is they have USB3 ports. But you will pay more for them.. new mini is not as useful.. they have soldered in memory and you cannot upgrade.. the old mini was the most easily modified mac in the whole range. Uses little power and can be bought for a $300US for a good one second hand.. maybe less.

  • Connection getting lost on Mac Pro running mavericks

    We have replaced one of our old Xserve fileservers with a new Mac Pro running Mavericks.  This is one of four systems we use to reduce dense geospatial data into descriptive assets.  Up to 20 iMac workstations can be accessing data on this server simultaneously.  The problem we are experiencing since, the switch to the new fileserver, is that the workstations seem to be randomely loosing their connection to the data.  We don't have this problem with any of our four other systems configured as Xserves, running Lion.  Any suggestions or experiences that would suggest a place to start looking?

    Figured it out - there was an app that was being run at login and the hide this app button was checked on that app. The app has a dialogue box that pops up when the app starts. Because this box was being hidden it was impossible to click "OK" so the system kept trying to pop up that dialogue box, causing the app that was being used to shift to the background.

  • I just went from OS 10.6 to 10.8. The arrow button is gone from the scrollbar. I do not see the option in "Systems Preference" any more. Am I missing something. If it is gone, is Apple going to bring it back?

  • I have created a PDF form with multiple drop downs, all with the same drop down values. When I select a value from 1 of the drop down fields, it replicates in all of the others - which I do not want. How can I fix this?

    I have created a PDF form with multiple drop downs, all with the same drop down values. When I select a value from 1 of the drop down fields, it replicates in all of the others - which I do not want. Can I fix this?

    I'm fairly new to this, but I think it has to do with the way you have the drop downs named. Did you copy one then keep pasting it in each field? If so, that is the problem. You should rename each one with a different number: Dropdown1, Dropdown2, etc. I think that might solve the issue.

  • HT1386 I have just purchased my first books from Itunes.  They are now in I tunes but when I try sync to the I touch, I do not see the audio books coming over.  I Tunes is set up for all audio books to sync

    I tunes Audio book does not show up in I tunes ibook when sync.  What should i do

    You are only as young as you feel......
    This is an example of how you can select the exact content that you want to sync to your device. You do not have to sync the entire iTunes library. You can pick and choose the music, apps, books and so on that you want to sync. This is using music as an example.
    Connect the iPad to the PC and launch iTunes.
    Click on the iPad name on the left side under devices.
    Click on the Music Tab on the right.
    Click on only the albums or playlists that you want to sync.
    Click on the Sync Music Heading.
    Click on Apply in the lower right corner of iTunes
    You can do this with apps, books, movies .... Whatever .... You have the freedom to sync whatever you want.

  • I have a sony handy cam model HDR-HC1 and a mac pro running osx10.9.3, are they compatible? as far as downloading movies from my handy cam. thanks in advance

    i have a sony handy cam model HDR-HC1 and a mac pro running osx10.9.3, are they compatible? as far as downloading movies from my handy cam. thanks in advance. If not, is there a different route i can take to get those recordings in to my mac pro?

    See if the cam shows up under Devices in the Image Capture app.
    Image Capture is located in your Applications folder.
    Launch Image Capture then connect the camera.
    The camera should show up under Devices top left side of the Image Capture window.
    Now look at the bottom left side of the window. Click the: Connecting this (device) opens: pop up menu and select an application to import your photos.
    You can also select a folder to import photos from the Import To: pop up menu.
    Selet the photos you want to import then click Import or Import All on the right.

  • HT1338 I have just bought a new Mac Pro after my old one died after nearly 10 years. I have most of my music backed up on CDs, but when i load them into iTunes they are only identified as Track 1, 2, etc. Can I transfer from my iPod and how?

    Greetings,
    I've never seen this issue, and I handle many iPads, of all versions. WiFi issues are generally local to the WiFi router - they are not all of the same quality, range, immunity to interference, etc. You have distance, building construction, and the biggie - interference.
    At home, I use Apple routers, and have no issues with any of my WiFi enabled devices, computers, mobile devices, etc - even the lowly PeeCees. I have locations where I have Juniper Networks, as well as Aruba, and a few Netgears - all of them work as they should.
    The cheaper routers, Linksys, D-Link, Seimens home units, and many other no name devices have caused issues of various kinds, and even connectivity.
    I have no idea what Starbucks uses, but I always have a good connection, and I go there nearly every morning and get some work done, as well as play.
    You could try changing channels, 2.4 to 5 Gigs, changing locations of the router. I have had to do all of these at one time or another over the many years that I have been a Network Engineer.
    Good Luck - Cheers,
    M.
