    How can I upgrade that?

    The SCSI tells me:
    Vendor: <<nothing>>
    Model: Scanner 636A4
    Rev: 1.40
    Type: Scanner
    ANSI SCSI revision: 02

    Does that mean that this is the firmware version 1.40?

    I use the one that comes with Debian Potato. (sane 1.0.1, xsane 0.5)

    Anyway my system load goes up very high while scanning. This may be because
    of the Adaptec1505AE (ISA) that came with the scanner. Does anybody know an
    PCI-SCSI-Controller that works with this scanner and is fairly cheap? My much
    more expensive Adaptec AHA2940AU did not accept the scanner, the system would
    not boot with the scanner on the bus...
