Review of Linux Compatibility
The Rollei DF-S 100 SE is a film and slide scanner, which can be connected via USB with the PC. The scanner is equipped with a small internal display, which allows to preview the positioning of the slides or film negative while scanning. The DF-S 100 SE is fully controlled by the buttons on the device and the menu that is shown on the internal display. Furthermore, the scanner has a SD card slot. The inserted SD card is used for storing the scanned images.
The scanner can also be used under Linux, since it can be controlled independently from any PC. It is not possible to see the current image (the one which is shown on the integrated screen) on the PC. But access to the scanned images which are stored on the SD card is possible under Linux, either by using a SD card reader or via USB (see below). The device is very picky, which kind of SD card is used, e.g. if micro SD cards (with adapter) are inserted, the device still starts, but the menu is scrambled and scanning of images takes 10 times as long as normal without storing the images on the SD card. It is therefore recommended to use an “old style” SD card for this device (i.e. low speed class and not micro SD card with adapter). Furthermore, it is a good idea to format the SD card inside the DF-S 100 SE by using the corresponding menu options. This ensures that the file system of the SD card is compatible.
Connecting the DF-S 100 SE
If the DF-S 100 SE is connected via USB without an inserted SD card, it is not recognized if powered on:
usb 1-6: new high-speed USB device number 6 using ehci-pci usb 1-6: device not accepting address 6, error -71
Instead, is is necessary to have an SD card inserted while starting the USB connected device, which has the USB ID 05e1:0b02:
usb 1-6: new high-speed USB device number 4 using ehci-pci usb 1-6: New USB device found, idVendor=05e1, idProduct=0b02 usb 1-6: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 usb 1-6: Product: DF-S100SE usb 1-6: Manufacturer: Rollei usb 1-6: SerialNumber: 0123456789AC usb-storage 1-6:1.0: USB Mass Storage device detected scsi8 : usb-storage 1-6:1.0 mtp-probe: checking bus 1, device 4: "/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:12.2/usb1/1-6" mtp-probe: bus: 1, device: 4 was not an MTP device usb 1-6: USB disconnect, device number 4
The DF-S 100 SE can now be used for scanning film negatives or slides. The corresponding images are stored on the interal SD card. To access these images without removing the SD card each time, the USB connection symbol has to be selected. The DF-S 100 SE then allows to access the SD card memory via USB. Under Ubuntu 14.10 the SD card is then automatically mounted and can be accessed to copy the images for further processing:

From then on, the DF-S 100 SE is visible via the lsusb command:
Bus 001 Device 011: ID 05e1:0b02 Syntek Semiconductor Co., Ltd
If the device is not in USB mode, it is not shown by USB. The USB connection is only used for power supply of the DF-S 100 SE.
