Hi Mark,

Please send your requests for help to the sane-devel mailing list.
There are many more people hanging out there that may be able to help.

  mailto:sane-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org

for more recent information.

Not without more information, for example the distribution and scanner

Hope this helps,
