Hi Alan,

Thank you.

Yes I did get it to go by fiddling and I think I know what is wrong (in
my code!). I am trying to centre the page to make up for the ADF so I
will sort that out and try again. The error 4 happens after the page is
scanned. In my view the driver should do the right thing, though. I'll
narrow this down a bit and get back to you.

Haven't tried the windows driver, but I should be able to crank that up
with a laptop or something.

Will have to look up what buffermode is.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04c5, product=0x1095) at libusb:005:013

For colour I seem to get 3 images side by side across the page. I can
probably do a test page with separate RGB to send you an image if that
would help. Maybe there is a new file format.

Is there a way of getting JPEG data from the scanner?
