Recently I bought an Artec Viewstation AS6E flatbed scanner to
work (I hoped) on my circa-1993 486DX/66MhZ. After a fair
amount of upgrading (CD ROM, Win 95, ESS Sound Card to drive CD)
I am disappointed that the scanner still takes 10 minutes
to prescan/scan. The scanner is epp/ecp, and after a while I found the bi-dir switch on the IO card. FAster but now 10 mins instead of 20. Video card: 1MB Cirrus; IO card has 8250 UART. CAN I make a cheap upgrade and see things improve?
