How do I record this log? I'm pretty shure that the CanoScan 3000 Series 
should work after "some" coding with the genesys drivers, because of 
this SANE unsupported device information page 
It seems not many sane-users have this scanner. But I have and I am 
willing to make it supported! If you need any information from the 
scanner, tell me and I try to provide it!

Hope it'll work someday!
