This usually means that the scanner module doesn't know your scanner.
You should be able to find out about the vendor and device ids with
"cat /proc/bus/usb/devices". Then unload the scanner module with
"rmmod scanner" (if it was loaded). Load it again with 
"modprobe scanner vendor=0x1000 product=0x400". Use the vndor and
product ids you got from the above output. Now "cat
/proc/bus/usb/devices" should list youz scanner with

However this doesn't mean that there is any SANE backend that provides
support for the scanner. Can you provide more details about which
chipset is used in the scanner? What are the vvvendor and product ids?
