Failed to open device 'v41:/dev/video'

I run Fedora 10 and use HP MFC 7580 networked via a router. It prints well but will not scan - just states a failure notice and states invalid argument. Any ideas?

Thanks Arckane - I have xsane installed and which works with an Epson flatbed scanner (1650) via a USB port which I am using on a temporary basis - only OK for single documents.

My kit is a Dell Inspiron 530 with N-Series Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 (2.66 GHz, 1066 MHz, 3MB) Memory Dual Channel 3mb (800 Mhz) 500 HD, Radeon Vidoe card 128MB ATI HD 2400 Pro
