Thanks. I've added it to the list.

Well, I would have been surprised if that had worked. That program is
only for the older hp scanners (those that are supported by the SANE
hp backend). If it had worked, you could have used the hp backend.

The hp4200 backend is not included in SANE. If I remeber correctly, it
detects any HP scanner so that doesn't mean taht it's supported by
that backend.

I'm not really surprised :-)

May be possible but I don't think so. hp4200 is an old backend and
that would mean they use the old chipset again. It's a LM9830 parport
chipset and a PV8630 parallel port-USB bridge.

Everything I know is in our lists. Just contact the person mentioned
there. There is also a similarity reported to the 2300 series, but I
don't know if that's really the case.
