LiDE 30 and the Mac

I have a LiDE 30 scanner, which is actually a fairly recent acquisition. It’s a nice scanner, in particular because it is entirely powered by USB, and so doesn’t need a separate power supply.

A few days ago I tried to get it to work on my Mac, which I assumed wouldn’t be difficult. I think I burned about 30 minutes on it total before giving it up as a bad job. There were a variety of different packages that claimed to do it, but none of them seemed to do much of anything, and none of them successfully recognized the scanner.

Anybody know of something that will get this working? It’s one of the new Intel Macs, and this actually seems to be the problem. I vaguely remember getting it to work on my pre-Intel Mac, but I just can’t remember for certain.
