5.0 out of 5 stars great scanner; horrid software, July 2, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon CanoScan 9000F Color Image Scanner (Office Product)
The scanner works just great - terrific images. The Canon scanning software that comes with it - terrible user interface. Too many features having nothing to do with just running the scanner. I don't need a picture organizer; I have iPhoto for this. Push the button on the front panel and the menus jump around on their own quite mysteriously. Ugh. Who designed this junk code? Five stars for the hardware; none for the software.

Follow-up on the software. As it turns out, if you install the included Photoshop Elements, the operability is quite nice. I'd still avoid the Canon software except for installing the drivers.

No idea if you will see this, but did you have any problem connecting the scanner to your Mac? I can't get it to communicate with my computer...
