Question about Canon DR-9080C Path-Through Scanner
I have a 9080C canon scanner, it is about 2 years old. It recently started having problems during scanning. It stops for periods of 3 to 5 minutes before it continues scanning. This happens sometimes after it scans a few pages and sometimes after scanning more than 20 or 30 pages. I use a s SCSI connection but I have tested it with USB, and the results are the same. I have tested it with XP and Vista, both computers have more than 2 gigs of memory. Manual page count (without scanning) has no problems. I think there may be a problem with the image processor on the mother board, but I don't know where to buy the motherboard to replace it.
Check the scanner settings in your software to see if a prescan cache ( sometimes called "scan ahead") is checked (turned on). In some cases, if the prescan cache is turned off, the scanner will slow down or stop after several scans, having to wait for the images to be processed and clear the scan cache. When the prescan cache is turned on, it allow the scanned images to be processed in the background without affecting the scan throughput.

Is the one computer that runs the scanner properly been fully-updated? I ask because I realise that my scanner started having problems when I hooked mine upto a machine with XP sp2 and the computer before with which it worked fine was possibly only updated to SP1 ....so Im wondering if its an issue with Service Pack 2 as the newest driver is dated 2006?
