The software (and the scanner, frankly) that came with the 3400C was
okay for normal mundane stuff, but not for book scanning. Plus, it
was slow.

Got a 7450C (with sheet feeder and transparency adapter). Woah, proof
that you get what you pay for ($99 versus $699). MUCH MUCH nicer.
PrecisionScan Pro, etc.
