Fujitsu ScanSnap sv600 - How to get working under linux
I have the Fujitsu ScanSnap sv600 overhead scanner. It is a great scanner with real quality hardware. It is great for scanning books up to A3 size. The scanner works great under windows but I have been unable to get this working under Linux.
Does anyone know if it is possible to get this working under linux
With that, we can see how similar it is to other Fujitsu machines. I
would expect that most of the features listed on Fujitsu's site for
this machine are actually implemented in software, and would be hard
to replicate. Hopefully, basic scanning functionality will be somewhat

I have have used USBsnoop on windows XP to get a log and have uploaded the log files. The first link is around 1.6 mb and just involves me powering up the scanner and initiating communication between the scanner and computer. The second link involves me doing a scan, but the file in the second link is very large - around 128MB Zipped.
It appears that this scanner does use a modified version of the
standard Fujitsu protocol. In theory, it is possible to support this
scanner with the sane fujitsu backend. However, there are a few
unknown commands, which we would have to parrot, since we don't know
the meaning. I'll ask Fujitsu for protocol docs, they might have
something that would help.
