Just done

So, you are able to scan using Image Capture. RIght?

Yes, thank you. I have several pages to do. I assume I scan them one at a time and name them differently.

Okay. May be MP Navigator is not compatible with the new Mac OSX version.

I would suggest you use Image Capture or any other scanning software.

Customer:

Thanks. I Googled, found my old MP Navigator was not compatible with Yosemite, so updated to a new version that said it was. That didn't solve the problem. I guess this is an incentive to buy a new Mac this year. The current machine will hit its fifth anniversary this year.
