I upgraded from Snow Leopard and now find that my Epson 2400 Photo scanner application is blanked out and inoperative. I downloaded the updated driver but it still doesn't work. I get the message that it is not supported by Mountain Lion.
In addition it dumped my CS version of Photoshop and the Disc Utility, both indicated that they are not supported by Mountain Lion.... I'm frustrated to say the least.
Thanks for the reply. I was able to get the scanner to work. I was able to go into Preferences, Print & Scan and get the scanner going. Disc Utility finally appeared without being greyed out and now works too....
I will have to get a newer version of Photoshop as my research has found that it is too old and will not work.
I would REALLY love to know how you got your scanner to work. I have a 3200. Image Capture is horribly clunky and slow for slides and negs. Epson and Apple also do not have Lion drivers for my scanner nor my r2880 printer. Maybe what you did in ML will help me!
Try this (and this is a big guess): • Have the scanner attached and turned on. • Go to System Preferences > Print and Scan. • Click on the "+" sign to add the scanner. • The scanner may show up; if so, select it and I think that does it.

Go to "Preferences" and select Print & Scanner with the scanner turned on. The scanner icon should (?) appear. Select it, if the window opens,it may look a bit different, kind of greyed out. I clicked on the bottom menu selections, choosing Pictures and and then Scan. I can't insert a screen shot because my hotoshop no longer works with Mountain Lion.
You also might try downloading an updated driver by selecting the "Apple" icon and selecting "Software Update".
Personally, I kept a G5 Mac that I run some old Silverfast (CS2 plug-ins) and Nikon scanning software on for my old Epson 4870 photo and Nikon Super Coolscan 4000ED scanners.
I installed a IOGear GCS1762 DVI KVMP switch that switches easily between the 2 computers with the push of a button. Using one display and keyboard/mouse. My main computer is a 15" MBP, with a GB switch for fast transfer of files between the 2 computers. Setup works pretty well, and sometimes having a spare computer has come in handy.
My upgrades from Snow Leopard to Lion and now Mountain Lion all went without to much heartache. I am still using an Epson Stylus Pro 500 and an Epson Artisan 800. Epson had new drivers ready when I did the upgrades. The only software that didn't conform with the upgrades was Nikon Scan 4. Nikon informed me that I would have to get a third party software product that would support my Nikon Coolscan 9000 such as Silverfast. Imagine that, my software is no longer supported by the company that makes my hardware. Just as long as Nikon doesn't tell me that my camera needs a firmware upgrade but they don't do that anymore and I need to go to a third party for that firmware.
