the source of these rumours is me.
I do not know if this works. I see a small chance and it would
be interesting if someone would test it.
The reason why I think it could work is the following:
USB scanners do not have a processor, the use a simple ASIC.
Because of this they are not able to use the SCSI protocol
wich needs much more "intelligence" than the ASIC has.
The Astra 2200S has a processor and so it is possible that
the SCSI protocol also is used for the USB connection.
As far as I know nobody every tried this or succeddes with it.
If you find out anything about that, let me/us know.
