Using lower bitdepth may still be faster than higher ones. So even if
the size of the resulting image file is the same, lower depth may be
useful if your scanner is faster with the lower depth.

Seems to work now.

I haven't looked at the w2k SCSI architecture. In the win95 days I
used to use the ASPI wrapper dll but I don't know if ASPi is used
