Ever since I bought my CanoScan 3200F I've noticed before every
scan the unit auto-flickers the platen/film lights repeatedly on/off.
That is even if I manually select platen scanning, not auto or film.
Whilst the scanner is superbly fast (and works well under XP Pro)
this flickering before ever scan adds up to a lot of time wasted when
scanning 40-100 items at a time.
Q: Has anyone found a workaround, or "do they all do that"?
I can't see any later drivers on the Canon website.
A case of lpi m/sec being only part of the story, since it adds quite
a lot to the actual scanning time when doing lots of small scans.
