Does this mean that we may never be able to use Microtek USB scanners like
4800 with sane and have to go surrender to Gates and his windows for
scanning. Personally I am really disappointed!!!!

With Regards

On Monday 09 September 2002 11:45 am, you struggled free to say:

Well, that's better than what I have for a response so far (nothing.)
I guess now that the underside of my platen has some dust on it, and I've
noticed that WinXP is not supported (just 2000; the 1394 device stays
unrecognized, generally, (a 6700)) it's time to have a good look for the
obvious JTAG port or such here.

On the other hand, an Australian named Wilfried may actually understand
English or one of the easily e-mailed romance languages.... :)
