If you can provide the USB pid for this model, we could try a quick
test, as there's some chance that this model behaves like a MX340 or
MX330, which are already supported. To get this, simply issue a lsusb ,
the usb pid should be in the list shown.

Here are some instructions for using SnoopyPro.exe
You can get this free utility SnoopyPro.exe from sourceforge.net:


Read instructions on SnoopyPro.exe, then try to record a scan session
(you must be in under an administrative user account to do that).
Actually, these are the instructions to follow for a snoop:

1. Run SnoopyPro.exe from whereever you have saved it.
2. Open up the USB devices window with F2.
3. Choose 'Unpack Drivers' from the 'File' menu.
4. Choose 'Install Service' from the 'File' menu.
5. Locate the device you want to sniff.
6. Right-click on it and choose 'Install and Restart'.
7. Wait for the magic to happen...

=> Select the device corresponding to the scanner, it will have usb
address: 04A9:xxxx
There might be ~4 devices holding this address.
The scanner should be the one indicated by: "MX350 ser"

You can recognize that it's the correct one, if you look at the frame
counter in SnoopyPro, it should increment only when the scanner is
This is important ... in order to avoid having huge log files filled up
with useless data!

Select a **small** scan area to scan (still to get a small log file)
using the Windows scanning tool (scangear), and start scanning with the
duplex ADF.

Then, Save As ... the file (in SnoopyPro menu), zip the log and send it
