Why is my scanner recognized as an external memory? (Mac)

The scanner has a tiny amount of memory which is not used by the product. When you  connect the scanner to your computer it mounts a disk drive on your Desktop.

You can simply ignore this. 

When you unplug the scanner you will get a "disk not ejected properly" alert which is unavoidable. Click Close to close the message.
