Scanner not found

I cannot get my iMac to recognise and scan from my HP PSC 1500. When I open up HP Scan Pro it says

Sorry, scanner not be intitialized [sic]. (Scanner not found.)

However, I can print to the same device OK, and I can scan from it on my MacBook. A difference is that MacBook is running an older version of Scan Pro i.e. 7.3.14. The version on the iMac is 7.4.5.

USB cable.

It does not make a difference whether I plug the cable directly into the computer or via a powered hub (which is more convenient).

The upgrade was the answer. I had been avoiding it because it was a 116mb downlaod which seemed excessive since I did not want to use all the HP Image Zone features. I only wanetd to scan. Thanks Strung.
