I got a VuPoint FS-C1-VP-BX2 and I would like to help, however I don't know to
code very well and I am a Linux noob, but if you need a tester count with me.

The mine gives the same output.

That is a very important one and I wonder if it could be implemented in xsane.
In the windows app included in the cd (ArcSoft Photoimpresion in my case).

According to the manual, you should always calibrate first the white balance
before start the converting process, this is done with the negatives/slide tray
outside of the scanner and with a special dialog from the app.

Thats right. Even Windows at the first connection detects the VuPoint as a 5Mpx
camera, but after the driver install, it becomes "OVT Scanner"
