I got the same scanner and was able to get it working after making my
idescsi and ppscsi both modules. There is reportedly a conflict between
idescsi and onscsi. I haven't tried loading both at the same time yet,
too busy catching up on my scanning backlog. I plan on writing a simple
shell script to unload the onscsi and ppscsi then loading the idescsi when
I want to switch between writing CD's and scanning pictures.
