Sorry, I forgot this in my previous message:
Most likely, your scanner is not a true 1200CP. It looks like there are
600CP's out there that are labeled as 1200CP's.
I have had a few similar reports before. I don't know who is
responsible for this, ie., whether it is Mustek itself or some
If your scanner works fine with the cis600 setting, then it's indeed
better not to try the cis1200 or cis1200+ settings, because that can be
damaging to your scanner, as you found out.
