you may search the archive about mails for HP 2400 support. The answer is the
same. Basically, the process is to record USB logs of the scanner working
under windows, then process them to extract commands and register settings,
then modify the genesys_gl646.c code to handle it the same. There is some
documentation at http://stef.dev.free.fr/sane/genesys/index.html . The C code
involved is not high, all you'll have to do some modification of existing
There is allready an device description of the 3670c in genesys_devices.c .
To do a quick test, you can uncomment (remove the '#' at the start of the
line) the usb id of your scanner in genesys.conf (which is usually located
at /etc/sane.d), then try to use it from scanimage. It should be detected and
I expect it to fail during warm-up.
