Hello, i have installed my new Perfection V37 scanner onto my mac desktop and it will not recognise the scanner.
I am running OS X 10.9.5 which should be enough as the system requirements are apparently OS 10.5.8 or later for the scanner.
I set it up on my computer at work and it installed perfectly with Yosemite..
please help!!
