I also have an HP3300C which I have been trying to get working with SANE.
So far I have determined that (similar to the HP5300) the 3300 is a
rebranded Avision scanner, the engine of which is supported by the SANE
Avision driver (haven't been able to verify this). In order to make the
3300 work with SANE, you have to go through the same process as for the
5300; upgrade to the 2.4 kernel which is patched with the new USB scanner
driver mentioned in the 5300 mini-howto, and patch the Avision backend to
recognise the vendor string output by the 3300.
I have been unable to attempt this process yet, as I can not upgrade to
the 2.4 kernel. I am running my system on a Tekram 395U SCSI controller,
the driver for which I had to patch into the 2.2 kernel. This driver (for
the Tekram card) does not support the 2.4 kernel. So, I am unable to move
to 2.4 until someone (possibly me) spends the time to port the driver to
2.4. If you succeed in getting your 3300 working with SANE I would
greatly like to hear about it. Good luck.
