Scanning on iMac (OS 10.6.4) with Dell 1235cn

I need some help getting a Dell Multifunction Color Laser 1235cn to scan to a Mac.

I have downloaded and installed the drivers from Dell's website.  The scanner is listed in System Preferences but does not function properly.

  1. When I try to scan either from the Flatbed or the ADF, the scanner makes a small noise like a gear just starting to turn.  Then nothing.
    1. If I initiate the scan with the software on the Mac, it acts like it thinks the scanner is working, but no image comes up.
    2. If I initiate the scan from the 1235cn (Scan to PC -> Local PC) I get an error on the LCD, "Not Available"

I've tried both USB and network connections.  Neither work.  The printer does print ok though.

Thanks,

-John
