Comments

IEEE-1394 seems to be supported with the microtek2 backend. More reports would be appreciated. This is a report from our bug tracker:

The Microtek ScanMaker 9800XL scanner is currently listed
as unsupported in your database, but I have been
able to use it partially. It works if I use the
following environment
2.6.8 kernel
ieee1394 bus
sbp2 module (tunnels scsi through firewire)
sg module (scsi generic)
microtek2 backend

With this setup, I can successfully scan, but
have not tested it extensively. One thing 
that does not work is the preview function 
in xsane.

Here is the contents of /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices:
Host: scsi2 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
Vendor: Model: ScanMaker 9800 Rev: 1.31
Type: Scanner ANSI SCSI revision: 02

and the output of sane-find-scanner -v -v
checking /dev/sg0... open ok

found SCSI scanner " ScanMaker 9800 1.31" at /dev/sg0


I tried to make it work with a 2.4.27 kernel,
but ran into the problem that the sbp2,sg module
combination was not correctly reporting the
hardware to proc. /proc/scsi/scsi would correctly
show that there was a device there, but would not
report it as a ScanMaker 9800XL but would instead
just have some none ascii characters in the
vendor and model fields.

Want to add or correct information?

If anything is wrong or missing on this page please file a bug report or use the the form for adding an unsupported device.

If you own an unsupported scanner, please send as much information as possible. Especially the output of sane-find-scanner -v -v and/or cat /proc/scsi/scsi (for SCSI scanners) or cat /proc/bus/usb/devices (for USB scanners) can help. If you dare to open the scanner, have a look at the text that's printed on the chips. That may help to identify the chipset. If you know that the scanner is similar to another one (e.g. supported by the same Windows driver), please also mention this fact.

Information for Manufacturers

Are you a manufacturer or vendor of scanners and one of your scanners is not supported by SANE yet? In this case please have a look at our information for manufacturers.
