I too use a Mustek 1200CP but see the same problems as Yoshi.

You may remember that I'm the person that appears to lose 1/4 of the

Can you put these two pnm files somewhere on a web or FTP server or

I don't know if this helps, but scanimage can also produce tiff
images. If you can use GUI programs: XSane can produce jpeg files
