Okay, so far so good. I have my new iMac, sat in front of it now. I think I'm going to need some help.

The first thing I wanted to do was get my printer up and running. Job done, now worries.

Next thing I want to do is get my 35mm film scanner up and running but it is confusing me a bit.

The manual says that it is compatible with Mac OS X but when I go to the driver page here:

Drivers & Downloads | Drivers & Downloads | Plustek

It doesn't mention support for Mac OS X.

However, if I go here:

OS Compatibility | OS Compatibility | Plustek

....scroll down to my model, the Opticfilm 7600i and it says that it is compatible.

Do I simply download and install the standard driver? Do I install it and then install the patch which is further down.

Cheers

Actually, what the page (second link of yours) says is that for Lion (10.7) compatibility, you need to purchase a third-party program, Silverfast. The "link" on Plustek's page takes you directly to the demo download for Silverfast.
