This is probably going to involve a little hand mucking about with Sane, the scanner utility itself, where's the link in the HCL, also, which is it on the sane list:

I have the drivers installed but still am having I/O communication problems.

It says:

"Failed to open device 'hpaio:/usb/PSC_2100_Series?serial=My279C604TOF'
Error during decive I/O"

I know that the product version is wrong but how do I change it?

My distro at this time is Mandriva. The configuration tools in mandriva say that the model is a 2100 at one point but looking deeper it reads as a 2110 which it is.

The scanner part as you can see reads it as a 2100 as well. Any ideas?
