USB scanner

Post by javierdlr »

Hi, I'm trying to use HP Scanjet 5300c (USB) with my SAM460, how do I know what device/unit (ex.: USBblah.device/1) my scanner is using?

BTW trying to use ScanQuix5 (worked great with my A1-XE) with SAM460 (via USB HP scanjet) and everytime I try to define a new scanner it just crashes/GR. Has anyone configure an USB scanner with ScanQuix5?

TIA

Jep longtime ago. an Epson Perfection 1250 USB with scanquix5-USB and the Epsonusb.device. But on OS3.9 ;)

My Epson died 2010. But you can try with AmiCygnix on OS4.1 with Xsane and USB. ( its in OS4depot.net )

@zappa

Yep, already rtied AmiCygnix, but with my HP Scanjet5300c USB it just start scanning, but aborts/stops (maybe some timeout issue). With ScanQuix I get a crash/GR :-P, can't remember how I configure it with my other/old Scanjet 4p SCSI. ¿:-P

Yep it works.

Xsane need some time to warmup the scanner but it works.

Poor quality need to ajust some settings. Or buy a better scanner ;)

well the HP scanjet 5300 USB (sort of) works under AmiCygnix (SAM460ex), it makes the preview image OK, but when I try the "final/real" scan it starts but at the middel of the scannig process it timesout :-P
I have another machine (PC) with linux in which works fine :-/
And my "old" A1-XE had a Scanjet 5p SCSI attached and with Scanqui5 no problems :-) (my problem now is that I don't have space in my room for sooo many machines).
