I have a no-name parport scanner with a label on the back saying
Microtek model mrs-600v3. It is a fairly old scanner that I have never
managed to get functional with linux.
I load the scsi module, ppscsi and onscsi which goes well and gives the
ppSCSI 0.92 (0.92) installed
onscsi.0: onscsi 0.91 (0.92), OnSpec 90c26 at 0x378 mode 4 (EPP-32) dly
1 nice 0 sg 16
scsi1 : onscsi
Vendor: Model: Scanner 300A4 Rev: 2.50
Type: Scanner ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Attached scsi generic sg1 at scsi1, channel 0, id 6, lun 0, type 6
It's /dev/sg1 because I already have an IDE CD-RW under ide-scsi.
When I try to scan something using xsane I can usually make a preview
and start scanning, but almost everytime I get errors like these and the
result is a partially scanned image.
onscsi.0: WARNING: data read overran by 95909/223169 bytes
onscsi.0: WARNING: data read overran by 402/127662 bytes
onscsi.0: WARNING: data read overran by 38105/165365 bytes
onscsi.0: WARNING: data read overran by 58571/185831 bytes
Sometimes the error occurs already at the preview. Sometimes I do manage
to scan an image. After each error the scanner blocks and I have to
turn it off and on again to retry. Otherwise I get I/O Errors.
All this is with Debian Linux (woody), kernel 2.4.10 with the ppscsi
I have installed libsane and sane, both version 1.0.4 and xsane, version
I have a mechanical switchbox between the computer and the scanner. It
has never cause problems before.
