I just got a Minolta Dimage Scan Dual II, which is a usb film scanner by
Minolta (http://www.minolta.com/dp/dual2/index.html), which was rumoured to
be manufactured by Avision.
The usb ID (0638/026a) confirms the rumours about the manufacturer.
Using a module (usb-scsi) that has been posted to usb-devel (still very
incomplete and no further news from the author) I have managed to access the
scanner as a scsi device and use sane with the avision driver to make it move
(perhaps dumping an image, but certainly crashing the system...).
The point is that the avision driver seems to be concerned only with flatbed
scanners, thus I don't have any control on film movement, slides/film strip,
Before any further movement I would like to ask the list:
a) avision or minolta specs anyone?
b) anyone with a similar scanner is interested in trying to develop/adapt a
driver for this scanner?
If I get the information I will anyway try to go at it, but "my experience in
device programming is limited (TM)".
