HP Scanjet 7400c driver for Mac OS 10.8

I am upgrading from OS 10.4 to 10.8 and the most recent driver for the Scanjet 7400c is dated 2004, the same software that came with the scanner when purchased??  I doubt it will run with Mountain Lion??  Any ideas?

Yeah the last support for this scanner was 10.3, so its new scanner time.  You could just get an all-in-one printer with a scanner on it.  The scanners on current printers are pretty good.

 

I recommend the HP Photosmart 7520.  Look for them at http://www.shopping.hp.com/en_US/home-office/-/products/Printers/Printers

Acutally, I have two 7400c 's which I guess are now scrap.  Fortunately, we also have a 4890 for which HP has seen fit to publish new software.  I think we will be sharing it for a while.

 

In the subject of new - 7520, etc.  The descriptions are not sufficient to tell whether they have a flat bed capability???

Yup they have both flatbed and document feeder access to the scanner.

Hi,

If you do prefer to somehow use the scanner, another idea you may try is the 3rd party Vuescan application which seems to support the 7400c and compatible with Mountain Lion:
