Mailbag: The stuttering scanner
This was originally a forum post, but I’ve found the discussion to be useful to a broader audience, so I’m duplicating it in this space and adding some more information.
Q.: When I use my scanner, I am finding it takes an annoyingly long time for one scan, and it does this “stepping” when it scans. Instead of smoothly and quickly doing a scan pass like the old scanner, it scans, stops, scans, stops etc until it gets to the end of the glass. I am currently using Vuescan for the software, is that possibly the problem, or is there some setting I am missing that will make this thing scan faster?
