48bit scanning

I'mnot sure if this is the right the right place for this question but I'll ask any way.
I recently tried to scan some images at 48 bit rgb. i'm using a epson2400 photo scanner . My problem is, if I scan the photos and save them directly to the hard drive (as a jpeg) then open them in photoshop cs, photoshop converts them to 24bit. if I use the import command in ps and save them as a psd. file then the 48 bit file is preserved. Is this a problem with my scanner software or a setting in ps?
thanks dennis

I don't think JPG supports high-bit, but regardless it's contradictory to use a format that discards color information to store high-bit information. That's one of the several reasons why JPG is a poor choice for scanning.
