Thanks. I've added a link to your page on the HP 2300c page

Please get one of our snapshots
(http://www.sane-project.org/snapshots/) if you haven't done until
now. Make sure you have libusb installed. Commpile and install. Try
sane-find-scanner -v -v as root. Please remove the scanner module
(rmmod scanner) before.

I'm not sure but for me it looks like a Genesys chip (GL646, GL841 or
GL660). If it's a gl646 the scanner may be supported by the genesys
backend in future. Well, when I have enough time to finish it:

I've no idea about that specific problem on XP. But generally
speaking, I have heard that people had to try several versions of USB
snoopy (including old sniffusb) to get ONE log at all. Most of the
time the loggers just crashed. Sometimes they logged something, but
not the actual scanning. So using older versions and a lot of tries
may yield some result.
