Hi Group,

I joined this group few days ago and I have a similar problem like Karl had.

I have an USB Acer ScanPrisa 640U, I have installed latest SANE version, 
when I run the command: sane-find-scanner I got the following answer:
sane-find-scanner: found USB scanner (vendor = 0x04a5, product = 0x2060) 
at device /dev/usb/scanner0

However when I tried "scanimage -d acer:/dev/usb/scanner0"  or 
"scanimage -d snapscan:/dev/usb/scanner0"  I got the following:
scanimage: open of device snapscan:/dev/usb/scanner0 failed: Invalid 

What may I try to work with this scanner?
I am running Mandrake 8.2 and I am new in this Linux world.

Your help would be very much appreciated,
