Hi Rolf,

Thanks very much for responding.

It took a bit of effort to get the information you wanted because I had 
to dig out my old Windows XP laptop, run through windows update, install 
the USB drivers etc... now I remember why I switched to Ubuntu in the 
first place :-)

> Please check the used Sane version in xsane with CTRL - i.

Sane version: 1.0.23

> Are you sure that you removed the cover from the lamp of the
> transparence unit?

Yes.  I get a different error if I forget to unlatch the slide scanner 

> If this problem still exist, I need 2 logfiles from you:

I will send you a separate message with these log files shortly.
