some drivers do work
Authored by: BMarsh on Apr 21, '01 03:07:05PM

Some drivers do work under classic, it depends greatly on what they are and how they were written

some of those that do were are USB drivers, and they don't directly access any hardware

I've talked with people who have been able to use a USB CD burner under classic, and some other devices like this, but it is more luck than anything.

some drivers do work - Scanmaker V6 USL

I could succesfully install the ScanWizard Driver and Photoshop 5.0 under the real Mac OS 9.2.1 Boot (no surprise ;-) )

But if I turn on my Mac (standard boot is Mac OS X 10.1.1) and the Scanner is already turned on - this is important -) I could use the ScanWizard Twain Driver in Classic Mode.

Classic/Native OS 9/OS X resides on the same partition, standard install by Apple.

Maybe this is helpful for anybody.
