[filmscanners] Re: Help with Minolta Scan Multi II and Mac Powerbook G3

Hi Sara,

Make sure you go to the Minolta European website and download the new
(as of like yesterday) software drivers and pdf manual for this scanner.
  I believe one of the upgrades has to do with it running on the Mac OX 9.

These drivers (as of yesterday) were not yet on the US/NA site.

Getting to the download section is a bit convoluted (its part of the
digital photo section, software)... each time I went there I seemed to
get there via a different route.

Also, Minolta doesn't know how to label their versions correctly.  This
new version (on the PC side, at least) is called ver 1.0 although the
earlier version is a higher number...

I hope this helps,
