usb scanning in vm with canon mp780 gives small blank pages

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

I run Ubuntu 7.04 with an XP VM. The virtualbox tools are installed and I have a Canon MP780 multifunction printer/scanner/copier connected via usb. Printing works perfectly but when I try to scan in either the canon supplied program or Adobe Acrobat, I am unsuccessful.

If I try using the adf, pages feed through the machine but seem to go much slower and pause about 4 times per page. The result is small (about 4 per real page) blank pages. So if I try scanning a document of 6 pages, I end up with about 24 small blank pages in Adobe Acrobat even though the page size is set to A4. Running XP natively delivers the correct result.

If I use flatbed, it hangs with 0% scanning. Also running XP natively with the same driver works flawlessly.
