My "guess" was that if the system could issue the next read command
within the right timelimit, the scanner would be able to keep on
going. However, whatever I do, my scanner will backtrack on every
"read" that is issued.
It seems that the scanner doesn't "multitask" very well. It should
internally keep on scanning, until it runs out of buffer space, not
stop once it has satisfied the current "read" command.
On Linux we have the source to the generic scsi driver, and there are
patches to increase the buffer size, allowing you larger "read"
commands. Wether that's possible on your sun, I can't say.
I'm talking about the Tamarack. But is not valid for HPs as Hugo says,
but probably is for Musteks.
