Can the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M be shared with a PC?

I will use this primarily with my Mac but my project partner has a PC and it is likely that he would also have use of it for the same purpose.

    I use it on both a Macbook Pro and Win 7 desktop. The software includes ScanSnap software for both. However, you get Adobe for only the MAC, or if you purchase the S1500 for Windows, you get Adobe for WIN. The Adobe software alone is worth the price. The scanner is absolutely terrific, small footprint, fast and clear scans, duplex to boot. I've had several scanners over the years, this one is a winner.

  • I believe you can use it on PC if you install the software on the disc, however I doubt you can share it over the network. It is not TWAIN compliant so it requires the ScanSnap software to use.

  • Yes, it works as well with the PC as it does with Mac.
