** 18 minutes in stand-alone driver

*** in OS 9, occasionally crashes Photoshop, looses communication over firewire and gives Type 1 errors on attempting to restart Photoshop. Restarting and rebuilding the desktop always fixes this defect. It runs OK if instead you run the scanner from its stand-alone driver, however this driver is slower and takes one to THREE HOURS for this 6x7 scan at 3,200 DPI at 16x with ICE.

*** about 50 minutes in OS 10.2.6 August 2003 from Minolta's PhotoShop plug-in.

Adding USM adds two minutes at the end of the scan while it calculates.
