UMAX Astra 3450 GREAT but only for newer Macs

 

I know this scanner works great. I've SEEN it work great...on a G4. I, however, have a mac clone (PowerBase 180 with a G3 upgrade) with a USB card and therein lies the problem.

Installation by braille

 

The scanner works fine it seems, but Beware: if you are one of those folks who operates a computer with some trepidation and feels as though you've completed a moon landing whenever you install a new printer or piece of software, have someone help you...

The scanner seems to operate.

The instructions and installation are awfull.
