Software for Imacon 343 film scanner
« on: February 10, 2020, 02:01:29 pm »

Not sure if this is the appopriate section for this post, but here it is...
I have an Imacon 343 scanner, which hasn't been used in a while. Now that I upgraded my Mac to Catalina, the FlexColor scanning software no longer loads. Does anyone know of any workarounds for this, or alternative software that will work on this particular scanner? Thanks

Itís probably not 64 bit or just broke under the new OS. Iím afraid thereís little you can do but go back to an older OS or boot into one to use that software.

I was in a similar position a few years ago with a SCSI connected Flextight. Problem solved by loading an old Mac G5 with OS Tiger, fItting a SCSI card and using it just for scanning. Itís frozen in time so that I never lose the ability the ability to scan and it works perfectly - albeit not frequently.
Bizarrely I have a backup G5 which is identical to the above just sitting next to it. If anyone (in the UK) happens to be looking for one, send me a PM. I donít think Iím ever going to need it.
