HI Wolfram,

Thanks for replying. I've installed SANE about two weeks ago by downloading the source files from 

This is a recent SANE version ( Is this version broken? everything seems to work fine (except that it generates blank images).

Are there any tweaks/settings to play with to try and get it working with the Scanjet 4400C? is there a way to check if if the sensor in the scanner is the one SANE supports?.

In the list of the supported devices there is a note  that the 4400c is coming with two two different sensorss with only one of them being supported.. - Maybe you had the bad luck to get one with the wrong sensor. In this case the chances are poor to get it running.
Another point is that you are obviously running under debian. Out of any reason the SANE .deb-packages seem to be broken now and again. So you might exchange it with packages from the SANE server (it's a ./configure ./make
../make install installation) and see what's going on then.
