In Russian (The English page may be more current)
I'm no longer active in developing SANE drivers. Please send any comments or support requests to the sane-devel mailing list.
The idea of this page is to provide information about which Mustek scanner is supported by which SANE backend. Every Mustek scanner should be listed here, at least in a category like "all parport scanners". For Mustek scanners that are not supported currently all available information is listed. Please contact me when there are new scanners or when a scanner is supported by a backend.
You can also get a list of all Mustek scanners we know about by using the Scanner Search Engine.

ScanExpress CCD series: ScanExpress 600 USB, ScanExpress 1200 USB, ScanExpress 1200 USB Plus. The 600 USB, and 1200 USB and 1200 USB Plus seem to be similar to the 1200UB. I have the Windows source code for some of these scanners. If anyone is interested to write code, I can provide what I have. But it's quite a lot of work. Some people tried to get the scanners working but I haven't got a success report until now. Be careful when doing experiments. The slider may bump at the end of the scan area!

ScanMagic 4830S: Looks like it's a Relisys (Teco) scanner in reality. It's an Avec VM3575. It's completely different from the Mustek scanners. I haven't yet a report if it really works with the teco2 backend. SCSI-vendor: [empty]; SCSI-model: Flatbed Scanner; scanner-id: TECO VM3575
Paragon Power Pro: Very similar to the other Pro models. The commands seem to be the same, but scanning doesn't work nevertheless. Be careful when testing, I have one report that after testing only black images could be scanned even after powering down and booting to Windows. SCSI-vendor: SCANNER; SCSI-model: [EMPTY]; scanner-id: MFS-4800SPPRO.
Paragon 1200 FS, ScanExpress 1200 FS: Nobody has ever sent a detailed report about those. I don't even know the SCSI ids.
Most Mustek parport scanners: See mustek_pp page for details.
600 II N: Uses its own parport-like card
600 II EP: SCSI-over-parport scanner. Supported in the development version of SANE
600 II ED: unknown, but maybe supported by the development version of SANE
600 II N: uses its own adapter card.

Paragon Page Color MSF1200C: This sheetfed scanner comes with its own ISA card that is similar to the one supplied together with the Paragon 600 II N (same chip Mustek GA 1601). It is not supported by the Mustek backend. If someone has this device and wants to write driver ... The FCC-ID is "HWF96PAGECOLOR".
