Yes this shows that the scan commands must be send very fast to have no
stops - because the firmare of the scanners have the same quality as the
system this hardware is designed to work with ->GatesWare.
On my old UW driver I use maximum 16K data blocks and no stops with Scanmaker II
on a 60 Mz Pentium up to 300 dpi 24 bit A4 scans.
BTW it seems to make problems in DMA transfer if the buffer goes over DMA
depending on the ugly PC hardware design. So what do the low level drivers with a
