I've found very similar problems to you both with Photodesk 3.09 on a RPC running 4.02. Most of them have been solved by disabled TwainPDIF as Bernard suggested. I then scan using DPIngscan and transferring the files over to PD for processing. The tools within PD certainly seem much faster now than in earlier versions.
