Microscope not working with Mac Computer - 12/29/12 12:57 PM

I have a microscope with a USB connector. The microscope was made for PCs but the chinese manufacturer gave me a mac software hack they did but it does not work. I need to get this device working with my Mac. Any and all help is appreciated!

With so little info, there is no way of knowing where to start.

Like Michael said manufacture, make, model, image capture software etc would be useful.

What software are you using to capture the output? Is the device recognized in System Profiler under USB? How far into the process can you get?

Was the hack a driver hack or an image capture software hack.

If the hack is a software app hack then do a Command-I on it and find out if it's a Universal app or an Intel app.
Also we need to know what model mac you are running and version of the OS.

I'm sorry to say this, but I have a feeling this thread is going to be a complete waste of energy.

Let's not jump to conclusions before we examine it under a microscope. grin

Damn. I'm worn out from typing those four sentences, if only you'd have shown up sooner. smirk
