Using Epson Perfection 1670 scanner with Macbook

Can anyone point me to a work around for using my Epson Perfection 1670 scanner with my new Macbook? Drivers for the Mac OS do not appear to be available at the Epson website. Thanks much!

Thanks again for the help. I contacted Epson support and they directed me to download the same drivers that Apple Support had suggested. For some reason, the new drivers worked, even though I was really just retracing my steps and re-trying a previously attempted solution. The bottom line is, however, that I can scan photos successfully using the MacBook Pro and the Epson Perfection 1670.
Thanks much!

  • Help using Epson Perfection 1670 with Photoshop CS4, Mac OS 10.6.2

    I have downloaded and installed the driver from and I have also copied the twain plug in (from the install CD) into the import-export folder. I have restarted my computer and I am not able to scan. I do not see my scanner through Photoshop. I hope somebody can help me.

    Well a lot of people  myself included use stand alone scanning software  to do my scanning.   I use   VueScan software.  You may want to have a look at it.     Hope this helps you

  • Problem using Epson Perfection V500 scanner to Leopard

    This may be more of an Epson question, but their support is useless, as is their software. So I'm hoping someone in the Mac universe has dealt with this same problem (which appears to be a Leopard issue) and can help solve it.
    Despite installing the driver from Epson's website that is supposed to work with Leopard, I still get an error when launching Epson Scan. I have re-booted my Mac post-install for the new driver and turned the scanner off and on. Scanner is plugged in (green light is on), connected via USB to the back of my iMac 20", and the lid cable is connected to the base.
    I have heard about problems getting it working with Leopard, so i'm wondering if I should send it back. Any help would be more than I get from Epson. Thanks.

    Try VueScan
    It has a free trial mode. If it doesn't work, then the scanner is defective.

  • Epson Perfection 1650 Scanner won't work with 10.7.5, help?

    I am trying to use my EPSON PERFECTION 1650 scanner with my MacBook Pro, software version 10.7.5.  The old driver does not work with Lion.  I ran software update, with the scanner connected, and it did not come up with any new Epson software to install.  Can anyone help me locate this driver?  When I googled Epson driver for this operating system, it says I have to run software update on the Apple and it will automatically come up.  But I have had no luck.  Someone help please?  Thanks, Chris

    As listed on Epson's site the drivers are available via Apple Software Update.
    Ensure the scanner is powered on and directly connected to your Mac, then try following the steps below: e=yes&infoType=Downloads&platform=OSF_M_X7
    Now try opening the Image Capture application within the Applications folder and check if your scanner appears.
    If the scanner cannot be located yet try restarting your Ma and check for any difference.
    If the same still persists try resetting the printing system, then try adding the scanner again as listed on Epson's site.
    You may reset the printing system as following:
    Finally, if you still having issue getting the drivers from ASU try installing the package below and try scanning from Image Capture again:

  • Can Epson Perfection 2580 scanner be used w/OS 10.8.2?

    I used my Epson Perfection 2580 Scanner with my old Mac, which was an eMac. I've recently upgraded to an iMac running OS 10.8.2.
    The Software Update function downloaded a driver update for the scanner, but when I click on the Scanner icon in Applications, it tells me that this OS no longer supports PowerPC applications.
    Online forums talk about using Rosetta, but Rosetta isn't supported by Mac's new OS, etc., etc.
    Bottom line: Does this mean I am unable to use this scanner with my new iMac? Does this mean I must march out and buy a new scanner?

    Hi diamondhill,
    Did you ever get a driver for your Epson Perfection 2580 Scanner. I've just updated to OS 10.8.4 and can't find a driver for it.
    Deeply frustrated here.
    MacBookPro, running 10.8.4

  • Using PSE13 with Epson Perfection V600 Scanner

    I own an Epson Perfection V600 scanner and have always preferred the TWAIN driver (see TWAIN not installed | Photoshop Elements 9 and later) over WIA. Since installing PSE13 64 Bit I no longer have Adobe's TWAIN driver.
    I recommend using Epson's latest scan utility (last update 7/29/13), running it independently of PSE13, and importing into PSE13 later. The quality is much better than WIA.

    Seems the problem was a conflict with another program I have. The Epson software installed after I resolved the problem. I do wish the Epson support people knew more about their software since they were no help at all.

  • Epson Perfection 2450 scanner not working with Mavericks

    My Epson Perfection 2450 scanner stopped working when I upgraded to Mavericks, it is not recognizing the scanner. Tried restarting, using a different USB cable, a different USB port, etc...with no luck. The issue is that my computer no longer seems to recognize that I plugged it in. Tried it with Image Capture, Photoshop, Preview and even the old Epson software.
    I tried downloading the Epson Scan Patch for Mavericks released on Oct 31, 2013. That did not help either.
    I'm on a MacBook Pro running Mavericks version 10.9.3.
    Love this scanner and don't want to have to buy another. Any help to get my Mac to recognize it would be greatly appreciated.

    My wife's iMac with 10.6.6 stopped working with her Epson 2480 Photo scanner. Get the error message "SCANNER reported an error. An error has occurred during scanning" I am trying to use it from the Image Capture App or from the print/fax option in Settings which opens Image Capture. I ran the uninstall program and then reinstalled the ICA 13969 .dmg but get the same error. Not sure what else I can do.

  • Scanner (Epson Perfection 1670) doesn't *see* document on flatbed

    My Epson 1670 just started exhibiting where it scans but doesn't see a document. I took it off the hub and connected directly but no difference. It doesn't appear to be the bulb as I can see light move along as it previews.
    All I get is an all white image.
    THis scanner has its own power cable. It just worked a few days ago. I'm not sure what I could of installed recently that would cause this.
    Any Ideas?

    I just purchased a MacBookPro 17" and moved my Epson 1670 optimistically to the new laptop.
    I HAVE THE IDENTICAL PROBLEM (a blank/white document as the scanned image)! Epson has been less than useless (so far).
    On the Epson website the following (similar, but not exact problem) FAQ is answered. I cannot understand what they mean. Does anyone have any understanding or, better yet, a solution to this problem.

    I just installed the Epson Scan software for Mac OS X 10.4.x, but it will not run. It just pops up in the Dock and then disappears. What should I do?
    If you're using a Power PC or Intel-based Mac with OS X 10.4.x, your hard drive may be partitioned for Mac OS Extended (Case-sensitive/Journaled) or Unix File System. These formats are not supported. You will need to use Mac OS Extended or Mac OS Extended (Journaled) when formatting the partition.

  • I upgraded to Mavericks and can't find a driver to work with my EPSON Perfection 4990 scanner.  The Epson site says to update thru my mac but it there is nothing there.  Any suggestions?

    I upgraded to Mavericks and can't get my Epson Perfection 4990 scanner to work.  I had gotten it to work with a driver I downloaded from EPSON with Mountain Lion

    Epson is vorking on updating drivers and utilities for this scanner.
    From the epson site :
    An OS X 10.9 compatible Scanner Driver and EPSON Scan Utility for this model is not yet available but is coming soon. Please check back for availability."
    So, until then you can only use the basic scanning provided by Image Capture.
    Alternatively take a look on vuescan.

  • How to add Epson Perfection V500 scanner to Photoshop CC import device list

    How do I add an Epson Perfection V500 scanner to the "File-Import" list in Photoshop CC (64-bit)? I am using Windows 8.1 (64-bit).
    Thanks to anyone who can help me out.

    Vuescan has a 32/64 bit Twain driver and support for Photoshop CC. It supports 2500 scanners and the only one I know that supports 64 bit twain and it supports the Epson V500.
    It is a paid solution,but you can try it out and see if you like it.
    You can test drive it here
    The problem with any Twain software is that it puts a hold on Photoshop until the scan is done.
    Perhaps the best way is to let the Epson software scan and save to tiff while you are working.
