Apple keeps changing their Mac OS and PIE will not update the driver for my scanner. VueScan keeps my PIE scanner operating with each new Mac OS version that comes around. Boo for PIE - Kudos for VueScan!

VueScan provides the simplest way to make your scanner work, none of the problems of Windows drivers "not found". That also means that old hardware gets a new lease of life, ecologically friendly at its best!

My scanner, though perfectly good mechanically, had been orphaned heading into Windows 7. VueScan brought it back into use, and the new version for Windows 10 carried that on. The application is excellent.

PIE PowerSlide 5000

VueScan is compatible with the PIE PowerSlide 5000 on Windows and Mac OS X.

This scanner has an infrared lamp for scanning film. VueScan's 'Filter | Infrared clean' option can be used to remove dust spots from film scans. This is similar to (and we think better than) the ICE and FARE algorithms.

It scans with visible light in the first pass and with infrared light in the second pass.

Infrared cleaning works well with all types of color negative and color slide film, including Kodachrome. However, silver-based black/white film doesn't work with infrared cleaning because the silver particles look the same in visible light and infrared light.

Use the 'Scanner | Calibrate' command to set the current slide to be frame number 1.

You need to install the CyberView X5 driver to use this scanner on Windows and Mac OS X.

Note that PIE drivers for Windows Vista or later will usually work on Windows 10.

Note that PIE drivers for Windows Vista or later will usually work on Windows 10. Drivers for Mac OS X 10.6 or later will also usually work on Mac OS X 10.12 (Sierra).
