These two new HP Scanjets seem to be HP’s first official products in the workgroup scanning/business scanning market, available since around March 2006. Here’s an HP product page, it doesn’t look like anything else I’m aware of:
Does anybody have one of these, who would be willing to run some tests on it for me? Or maybe you worked on the TWAIN driver? I’m happy to share results with anybody – posting here or on my website.
If you have access to a ScanJet 8390 or 8350, my first request would be that you run Twister on it, and send me the report. Twister is a free download from my website:
And it is easy to run, and has a thorough uninstall.March 13, 2007 at 12:44 pm #23325

I have an scanjet 8350, and I have been trying to make it work in my SUSE 10 and have been imposible for me.
Can you give me a hand?March 13, 2007 at 11:56 pm #23326
Hi geomantis – This isn’t the place to ask, TWAIN isn’t used on Linux: Try the SANE website: http://www.sane-project.org/
People there may want to know what software (application) you want to use.March 14, 2007 at 12:19 am #23327
Hi geomantis, sorry for the terse reply above, I hadn’t seen your other post when I wrote that.
TWAIN really doesn’t exist on Linux, and unless I’m mistaken, when TWAIN eventually *is* supported on Linux, it will sit on top of SANE drivers – so you’d still need a SANE driver for the 8350.
I checked the SANE website, and there is, as you say, nary a word about the 8350 or 8390 (It looks like the Scanjet 8350 and 8390 are basically the same beast.)
However, I see that this guy claims to support the 8390 with a SANE backend:
The implication is that these scanners are actually made by Avision, which would not be at all surprising.
Ah – yes, here’s his original announcement:
Talk to him, maybe he can help.
My software (Dosadi) is all Windows-only.
ps Vista sucks.
