Kath: 10/24/2014:

One Star,


This scanner has been on the market for months and yet only one review can be found anywhere. Not a good sign. And the fact that Canon software works only with Windows is stupid these days. So what if Canon includes initial drivers; they never update them. If you read reviews of other "Mac-compatible" scanners, you will see that Canon does not offer drivers for newer Mac operating systems. No point in spending nearly $1,000 for a product that you can use only for a year or two.  

I made the mistake of buying a Canon scanner once but never again.  Canon, it's time to get smart!

ScanTastik note: The original dr-m160 was replaced by the m160ii model, the main difference is an improvement in speed. the older review would still apply here. Also, your operating system is Mac OS 10.9.4  Those drivers are on Canon's website.

The latest driver is from 6/4/2014. and works with 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, and Yosemite 10.10 !

We agree with Kath however, that the Canon software (not drivers) will only work with Windows. They should have Mac version software in addition to the drivers.
