actually, no. i discovered that my scanner had a hardware fault.
apparently i get on with scanners as well as i do with cd burners and
obviously you guys need to do a better job detecting hardware errors
that the hardware is not reporting. (note, i'm not serious here)
thanks for the quick response, sorry for the slow follow-up.
i had the scanner replaced and all is well. on a different note, any
idea why i get this error in /var/log/messages several dozen times at
the beginning of each scan?
