Excellent to hear.
I can't make much of anything out of that either, but when you get the
actual data transfers pinpointed I can compare it against the 630P protocol
if you like. Hopefully there will be some parallels (I'm sick of this pun
Some things you could keep an eye out for that are part of the 630P
* Each command ends with an 8-bit checksum
* Most packets coming back from the scanner end with an 8-bit checksum, too
* The scanner is 5104 pixels wide (330P is 2552 pixels) and just about all
are calculated according to that value
* The scanner returns a 38 byte ID packet with a 30 byte ASCII string in it
(easy to find)
Hope you can make some good progress, support for USB scanners is far more
important than clumsy old parallel ones these days. Good luck.
