I don't think the sensors is defective, because it works very well on
Windows2000 with the Epson software. And I have try the quality calibration with
no result.

This is a possibility. I will check this as soon as possible : in few hours...

Could you explain the calibration process with much details. Is it possible that
the calibration process be different whith snapscan backend than with the epson
software ?
I mean : the position of the calibration is done under the controle of the
firmware, or under the controle of the backend ?
