Hello again, it can yes but I believe it does not do it by default. You may need something like this:

This may work for you as well:

If this did not work please come back and let me know by clicking on reply to expert so we can continue.
If it did work please don’t forget to leave a positive rating it is greatly appreciated.

Hi Freddy,
The first suggestion does not work with an Apple Computer. I have looked at the second one but have not downloaded it. I will do that but need some time to figure it out. I will let you know probably by Monday what is going on. Thank you. B

You can use the built in program on a Mac to do this:
(skip down to connect the scanner)
