[sane-devel] Re: Questions about Microtek scanners (specifically USB 2.0 and Firew ire scanners)

unfortunately I have no information about work in progress for these Microtek
scanners. Microtek didn't release much information about the internals of
their scanners, so I can't say if the new models are more or less similar to
the SCSI-based devices which are operated by the microtek and microtek2
Maybe the times have chaged and / or Microtek releases some detailed technical
data if somebody wants to use some more of their scanners. Some time ago I
was in contact with Michael Papet <firstname.lastname@example.org> from Microtek, but
unfortunately he wasn't able to provide helpful technical data.
And you may have a look at http://sourceforge.net/projects/sm3600.
This is a backend for newer USB scanners from microtek. I would suppose that
these are technically more similar to the Firewire ones, perhaps you get some
more information there.
I cc'd this mail to the SANE-mailing list, maybe a reader of the list has some
comments on this?
