Default Mac issue: Scanner obsolete overnight!

All of a sudden my scanner (Epson 1640SU) refuses to work. I checked the power, connections, all that, to no avail. Decided to get an updated driver, and did, but there was a note at the download site that said the driver can not be used with Photoshop CS3 unless I run Photoshop in Rosetta mode.

I am not going to run Photoshop in Rosetta mode. I would rather buy a new scanner.

Edit: Actually, now I think the scanner may be dead. It is connected properly, has power, its little green light is on. But I downloaded a demo copy of Vuescan and it reports that no scanner is connected. Maybe it is another victim of my computer failure a couple of weeks ago. Drat.

Edit again: It appears that my USB hub is dead. Guess I will ask Jack to check it out.
