      Typically the SCR3500 reader works on Mac OS X out of the box. However, recently there has been an update to the SCM-3500 reader making it SCM-3500A. The update Typically the SCR3500 reader works on Mac OS X out of the box. However, recently there has been an update to the SCM-3500 reader making it SCM-3500A. The updated reader has a Part Number of 905430-1 which is imprinted on the reader. SCM (now Identiv), the manufacturer, has issued a driver for this new version and it is easily downloaded from Military CAC. "militarycac" dot "com" slash "CACDrivers" slash "scmccid_mac_5.0.35.zip" (sorry links are not allowed in reviews) Keep in mind that this update updates the driver only. The Mac OS Forge and Military CAC sites provide the needed additional information to get your CAC or PIV operational.

      Still not working...

      Idk...I see some people have gotten it to work, and others have not. I have a background in IT, and it is what I do for a living, so I have a very good understa Idk...I see some people have gotten it to work, and others have not. I have a background in IT, and it is what I do for a living, so I have a very good understanding of hardware, software and drivers. Forget the CAC enabler (I am trying to use PKard now), I cannot even get the reader to read multiple different CACs. I have meticulously went through the steps on MilitaryCAC.com, and it is actually why I picked this reader...there appears to be no compatibility issues. So, I'm using a Macbook Air, 13" (Early 2014) running OS X Yosemite 10.10.5. I can see the reader in hardware in the system report. The PKard software sees it after it is installed, but the reader absolutely will not see my CAC... However, I tried connecting the reader to a friend's computer running Windows (7 I believe) and it read just fine, LED came on and everything. I am not even getting an LED on my Mac, nothing. So a "bad unit" is ruled out. I've already updated to the latest driver 5.0.35, released in Aug 2015. I've submitted the form on MilitaryCAC.com with all required info to see if they have any suggestions. Anyone have anything here? Pretty much the only thing that I haven't tried is upgrading to El Capitan... I really like the compact design, and I'm sure I would love the device if I can get it to work, but so far nothing.
