    Hello all,

      Please help before I reduce my scanner to a pile of plastic.

      I've followed all the instructions and the mini howto to get the HP
    5300C working under Linux. I've patched both the kernel and the sane
    avision backend. I can see the &%$!! scanner on /proc/bus/usb/devices.
    I've set the buffer size to 32k. It doesn't work!

      xsane thinks for a while and then says 'no devices available'. I'm
    beginning to think that it might be because I have SCSI emulation
    running in order to use my IDE CD writer under Linux, because when I try
    and find the scanner, sg0 is reported as a CD-drive (so is sga). Am I
    going to have to turn SCSI emulation off?? I tried searching on
    /dev/usbscanner but that didn't get anywhere.

      Help help please help!
