Hi Robert,

I have an LG Electronics Scanworks 600U which is based on the same chipset
of your Primax Colorado USB 19200 (as reported at
http://viceo.orcon.net.nz/), so if you intend to develop a driver for that
scanner I'd like to help.
I have some knowledge of C/C++ but no experience with SANE developing.
If you're interested I'll start reading SANE documentation :)
