  1. scanner issue

    Hi everyone

    Im having scanner problems in FC1, i have a Benq 4300 Color Scanner.

    sane-find-scanner detects the scanner without a problem,
    and scanimage -L lists the scanner correctly. I have loaded the firmware
    needed and i edited the snapscan.conf so it users that firmware.

    The when i run scanimage i get the following error:

    scanimage: open of device snapscan:/dev/usb/scanner0 faild: Error during I/O

    Any ideas

    Any help would be appreciated
    Thx

    At last,

    The scanner issue is over, the problem was firmware, so now we know, the
    firmware you get with your scanner is NOT always the correct firmware.

    Just something too keep in mind

    thx to everyone for there help
