Right now I don't have any suggestions for other things to try. I guess
you could try sending me a sample image or two to look at (though if
it's the same problem as I've seen before, that might not do much good).

Try seeing if images less than 64kb long scan OK. It's probably best to
use greyscale for this. I assume that the problem is the same
regardless of the scanning mode, right? With what I've been told before,
the first 64kb or so of image data is OK, and then after that it becomes

A fellow mailed me a couple of days ago saying his SnapScan 600 would
scan in colour mode really slowly (about half an hour for a full-size
image). He found that there were two sg.h files on his system, that they
were different, and that the scsi driver and sane seemed to be using
different ones. You might want to run

find /usr/include -name "sg.h" -exec ls -l {} \;

on your system and see what it turns up. Maybe something similar is
going on here. It's a long shot, but worth trying.

BTW what versions of the kernel and SANE are you using? (Sorry if I asked
this before)
