I used VueScan many years ago. Loved it. That being said, when a vendor driver doesn't work, I've found that Image Capture almost always does for basic needs.

As most here know, you should never, ever, EVER install the printer driver updates that pop-up in your App Store app or Software Update panel. NEVER. In fact, if your printer/scanner is working perfectly fine, I wouldn't even install updates directly from the manufacturer.
