Removing saved Twain Scan Devices

Post by Frank3vh » Thu Apr 04, 2019 6:08 pm

Hello,
Can anyone tell me how to remove the devices saved in the twain scan etc. mode? Two old printer combos keep popping up and the scanner I want recognized is not registering (though it does using Image Capture). Thanks!

Hi,

just remove the old scanner drivers at /Library/Image Capture/TWAIN Data Sources/

Thank you for your reply Thorsten,
Following your diagram and several methods of searching my Macs, I haven't gotten any result for Image Capture or Twain (anything). Perhaps I should be looking elsewhere as one OS is 13.11.6 and the other 12.11.6?

Again, thanks!
Frank
