I have been hunting for a Medical ID card scanner for Snow Leopard.  I can't seem to find a good solution.  The closest I've found is a Fujitsu ScanSnap 1500m but it's HUGE!  I bought the new Canon 150m thinking it would be perfect, and it would have if the paper path was straight.  I tried to scan my own ID card and it's plastic, no go, it wouldn't bend easily enough.  For the Windows market there are a number of them but nothing for the mac.  Card Scanning Solutions has a few that are great for the PC but again, nothing for the mac.

The problem isn't usually the scanner but getting good software interface with the TWAIN drivers.
Here are a few examples of Snow Leopard drivers for some very small footprint card scanners

Most of these have a flat path for the card so normal card thickness- even with laminates - isn't a problem.
