Olaf Meeuwissen,

Are there plans for iscan to support the V200's
power button?  I assume this is very difficult to
code, or you would have done it already?  The
only way I have to turn off my V200 is to pull
the power cable.  My AC wall plug is not easily
accessible and I'm sure the DC connector on the
scanner is not made for this kind of duty cycle
and will soon wear out.  I suppose I could cut
the power cable and install an inline switch. 
Not a very eloquent solution though and voids my


As to the conversation of iscan/epkowa using evil
binary only code.  I would have bought another
scanner with open source drivers, but I could not
find one with the V200 specs (which my project
requires) and price point (I have budgetary
restraints).  In fact the other scanners I found
in the V200's class were not supported at all by
Sane.  So my hands were tied.  A manufacture with
open drivers would have taken this sale, it seems
like they would notice that opportunity?

You rock. That's why Blockbuster's offering you one month of Blockbuster Total Access, No Cost.
