Suddenly my drivers on MAC OS X snow leopard 10.6.7 have stopped working with Minolta DiMAGE Scan Elite 5400. The scanner hardware works fine on my MacBookPro as it has a newer driver installed (2005) than the original's(2003) on the boxed CD. I think I reinstalled the original drivers in an attempt to get things working so accidentally removing the working updated system files or something. I get the "Unknown error" and removing the MFSLibInit 0KB file from ~/Library/Preferences/DiMAGE Scan does not help it just crashes the Scanner setup window. The trouble is that all the Scanner downloads on the web point to Konica Minolta who no longer support Scanners or Cameras.
Did anyone save the MAC install package for installing the later version Scan Elite 5400 (not elite II 5400)? If so how big is it? Could it be sent via e-mail (<10M) or on a CD if bigger? I'm sure we can arrange some compensation for your efforts. Just copying over the files from the MBP to the iMAC doesn't solve the problem as there are other files installed during the install process so a proper install package is needed.
I guess the other option is to get the Pro version of Vue Scan, or put up with running the scanner from the MBP laptop then transferring the files to the iMAC.
I'll also have the same trouble if/when I upgrade the iMAC hardware to the new quad core in that I'll need new drivers and the Minolta ones on the CD don't work.
