Somehow I missed the first message in this thread, but this is
something thats not come up here since my scanner NOW is a USB.
But, prior to that, I had a Colorado 600p which was, and I can
relate a story. One evening after I had sent a 40 page file to the
printer, the missus came in and wanted a page scanned. I dropped it
on the scanner and fired up the single purpose (not sane related)
driver I was then using and asked it for a preview, totally
forgetting that the parallel port was busy, which it did with only
a second or so stoppage of the printer, then I asked it for the
real thing, which it did and that stopped the printer in the middle
of a line of graphics. When the scanner was done, the printer
fired right back up with no visible glitches in the output of those
So if you're asking can you print and scan at the same time, the
answer is yes IF the scanner driver plays nice. Does sane do that?
