Haven’t tried it yet (can’t afford to mess up my sync settings right now), but important enough to share. Stuff like this makes me feel sorry for the excellent Nuevasync, I fear they will become obsolete.
If you have an older Canon scanner attached to your Mac, you’re lucky, because Canon is very good at keeping older hardware drivers up to date. The usual update procedure is that you delete the previous driver using their DelDrv application, and then install a new driver.
Unfortunately, DelDrv requires Rosetta to run, and some Snow Leopard users are trying to keep Rosetta off their machines. I’m one, and until now, I’ve been successful.
After updating my Canon drivers, I routinely encountered an error message stating
/System/Library/Extensions/CNQL1208_ClassicNotSeize.kext could not be loaded
A little research showed that this was part of the old Canon driver that should have been deleted by the DelDrv application which I did not run. I manually removed the file (you can either do this through Finder or using the command line). My scanner has been working fine afterwards, and there were no other ill effects that I noticed. I just thought I’d share this info for anyone else that was bothered by the error. It’s fine to delete /System/Library/Extensions/CNQL1208_ClassicNotSeize.kext.
Disclaimer: Try this at your own risk. This should be a temporary fix until Vodafone publishes its own K3760 Snow Leopard compatible software.
The Vodafone K3760 USB modem (black USB stick) is currently not supported on Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6). However, you can get it to work by combining the latest Vodafone Mobile Broadband software (VMB, formerly VMC) with the OEM driver (OEM = Original Equipment Manufacturer).
This is a step by step guide. You may or may not get some kext errors every now and then during install, just ignore them.
Canon makes good on its promise to deliver Snow Leopard compatible drivers for its older hardware. I just installed the newest drivers for my aging Canon Canoscan Lide 35 flatbed scanner. Even though I got some kind of warning during installation, and I didn’t delete the previous driver (the DelDrv driver uninstaller requires Rosetta, and I’m trying to keep that of my system), it’s all working just fine. Including the hardware buttons on the scanner.
