If you still have the UMAX 4100 I'd be still interested in its
sane-find-scanner -v -v output.

Thanks, this one is already on our web site.

See the other recent mails about this scanner e.g. from Gerald Murray.

Generally, you must enable the ids for that scanner in genesys.conf
and check what happens when you try to scan. If it doesn't work, check
in the source code at which position and why. Also check/try the
different available falgs, motors and so on. If necessary, get a
Windows log file and fix the genesys code appropriately.

That's not necessary any more.
