I currently use a ScanSnap fi-5110EOXM scanner which runs great with Windows XP. However I want to use the scanner on my Mac / MacBook Pro. I downloaded the latest Mac compatible driver from Fujitsu, but after installing the software it never recognizes the scanner. I’ve tried switching USB ports, turning scanner off / on, re-installing software, etc. My MacBook Pro uses an Intel based processor which the documentation says it should support.

To scan documents successfully I launch VMWare Fusion, launch Windows XP on my Mac and then scan docs. It’s a pain in the but and would be easier to just scan from my Mac OS. Any success stories or work-arounds for this scanner?
