Splitting tiffs on os x

I am new to JAI Imageio and am trying to take a multipage tiff file and split it in single page files.

Unfortunately I am not able to get a reader for a tiff file using...

Iterator readers = ImageIO.getImageReadersByFormatName("tiff");
Also if I print..
then tiff does not appear.

I believe the problem relates to the fact that I am using Mac OS 10.5.6. Am I correct in thinking that perhaps I cannot split tiffs using Imageio on a mac since there is not a plugin available??

If it is possible could I have a code snippet, I have spent way too long on this!

I am having the same issue in 10.6.1. Were you able to resolve this on OS X. It seems that reading TIFF images in JAI on OS X is not supported. I found some posts suggestion to use TIFFImageReader, however the same posts suggest some endian issues with that class.
