I have an Epson Perfection 1250 USB scanner (yes, it’s old…). It works great in Image Capture, I have used it many times. But I cannot get it to work properly in DTPO.
I bring up the capture window, and this causes the scanner head to do a scan, so the software IS recognizing the scanner. However, the overview/preview sheet that pops up is blank. So, I play with the controls (e.g. trying different resolutions, including 300 and 600), and though the scanner acts like it scans each time, the sheet remains blank (even though there is a document in the scanner).
Finally, since the preview/overview is doing no good, I click “Add Page” to see what happens. The barber pole at the bottom of the “scanned document” window starts turning, next to the message “Epson Perfection 1250/GT-7200: Scanning…”. But, nothing happens. Nothing at all. Eventually I close the window. Failure.
Note, I am using DTPO 1.3beta2, on an Intel MBP (first generation, 2Ghz core duo) running 10.4.8 with the latest security updates.
Help appreciated, TIA
