Have you bought Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and have a scanner as well. Does your scanner still work on Lion, did you have to do any updates or has it been a failure? Please share your findings and thoughts.

I have not tried my scanner as yet but my with my Brother Laser printer I had to manually download driver software from Brother. Then I was able to add the printer and it works perfectly. The Drivers I downloaded were for 10.6.

I was just shocked there was no driver in 10.7 for the printer as it's been in every OS since 10.4 or 10.5.

As dtravis7 noted, the Snow Leopard drivers worked. Both of my printers and the one scanner all work with the original Snow Leopard drivers that were installed some time ago. That does not necessarily mean every printer or scanner is going to work. You'll just have to try yours first to see.

Yes I have a Samsung CLX-2160 colour laser and Scanner and it works perfectly. I didn't have to do anything.

One thing I did do was to change the icon on the Image Capture App, it's a Camera by default which can be counter intuitive when you only launch the App to access the scanner. I changed it for a flatbed scanner icon.

I never connect my digital camera directly, I always remove the memory card and plug that into a USB reader.

I have an Epson Stylus 6900f multifunction printer. Still prints ok but scanner is not working. Error message says PowerPC applications are no longer supported. Does this mean I will have to buy a new printer/scanner? Anyone have any suggestions?

I have a Canon MP640. Supposedly I simply need to do a Apple Software Update in order to get scanning working, however the update doesn't appear when doing so. I had to log into Windows in order to scan, crickey!

My Canon Pixma MP 990 works just fine using the same drivers I used in 10.6. Setting up wireless printing and scanning required connecting by USB first but that was often true before Lion as well.

If you no longer have a driver for your scanner, do a Google search for Vuescan. It is an excellent program that comes in a native Mac version and supports many (but not all) scanners. I have used it for years on Windows machines and now use it on my new iMac. The developer is very concientious about keeping it updated. Works fine on Lion.

My Epson scanner no longer interfaces with Lion. Just had a call with Apple Support and they couldn't fix it. Said it was up to Epson to write new software -- sometime in the future.

My older Epson Scanner is working fine in 10.7.1 Lion. Tried it tonight on a scanning job and it was perfect. Just like it was in Snow Leopard.
