Sanjay.Chigurupati@lntinfotech.com has a HP scanjet 2400 and it seems to 
be the same driver.
After the mail of mancio_and@libero.it we just received, I think I am 
the last one to try to write a driver for this scanner :( If I forget 
someone just send an e-mail...

Personnaly, I just defend my PhD and due to that I had no time to go on 
with this driver, but now i will have much time and I am still very 
interested to do it.

I tried to ask HP for some technical doc but with no results... if you 
want to try...
I tried to log the usb transaction under windows, bur unfortunately I 
can only log the beginning of the transaction... I don't receive 
anything in the log after the preview scan :(

So as you can see we are at the very beginning of this job, but if you 
are interested I will be very very happy to collaborate.

Do not hesitate to e-mail me, and we can start a more robust project to 
lead to this driver if you want...
