In my experience, USB scanners bite the big one. We had a couple
Microteks in at work with the intention of creating a scanning
station. Well, the Zip drive wasn't a problem at all. The Jaz drive
through the SCSI->USB interface, that worked the first time. The
scanner? That little bastard was so sensitive to the topology of the
bus that I could never actually get it to work. I have since gathered
that this is not an uncommon scenario for USB scanners.
I think it takes a lot of work to make something less reliable than
Iomega products, but Microtek managed it somehow.
