At work we have Photoshop CS3 Extended and two scanners, a Cannon CanoScan Lide 70 and a 30. The ScanGear drivers PS plug-in always give an error message in CS3 that it did not load. Is there somethin

by mrshow555 12 years ago
nevermind the Lide 70 has an updated driver, but the LiDE 30 still does not. I think I read something about opening in Rosetta and you can make it work.
