i am using a canon canoscan lide 650u

i get vertical lines when scanning using xsane from debian etch, i also tried never xsane (testing) without better results

the problem doesn't happen in windows with canons driver


it is much more visible at higher dpi and resolutions, seems that you can see the scanning cable and "head-sliding pipe" reflected in the image somehow.

i tried calibrating and all settings available in xsane, the problem doesn't happen with my scanjet 6300c which is also usb.

any ideas what can be the cause?

if you need usb driver output from windows i can perhaps supply you with it(i got vmware running)
