I posted an article several years ago explaining how to use a PC version of the Fujitsu ScanSnap on your Mac. In fact, that post has been one of the most popular ones on this blog. My office is still using that PC ScanSnap (model 5110EOX2) on our Macs every day, without a hitch (for over five years now).
I have discovered that there is now a way to install the more recent version of ScanSnap Manager with virtually all of the PC ScanSnaps, so I thought that I’d post about the newest process and included models. Thanks to the folks at the MacOSXHints Forum for their thread on this topic. There are some important notes and cautions in that thread, and I recommend you read it before installing this software.
First, download and install the updated ScanSnap Manager (revision: V2.2 L11) by clicking here. Then, you need to install the appropriate patch kit. For models S300, S500, S510, fi-5110EOX, or fi-5110EOX2, install Patch Rev. 0.4a by clicking here, and for models S300, S500, S510, and fi-5110EOX3, install Patch Rev. 0.4b by clicking here. Once you have downloaded, unzipped, and installed these, you should be ready to go.
