I've reduced the size for the 2480 since I currently can't distinguish 
between 2480 and 2580. The original size may cause damages on a 2580 
since the scanner bumps into the rear end of the transparency unit.

Once it is known how to distinguish between 2480 and 2580 the sizes 
can be set individually. For the time being I'm using the safe 
settings of the (smaller) 2580 area. If you really need the bigger 
area you can adjust the scan area in snapscan_options.c.
