Hi Jose !
I have a canon MP150 and Christopher Albert suggested me to have a look

logs in order to see if there is something common between the MP150 and
At this time, I just captured logs with usbsnoop, but I didn't took the
time to compare them with Christopher' logs (as I am not familiar with
the USB protocol).
