These are hexadecimal (base 16) numbers so you probably need to prefix them
with "0x", ie:
modprobe scanner vendor=0x3f0 product=0x605

Prefixing something with just '0' denotes it as an octal (base 8) number if
I remember correctly, so it would balk on the f.

Of course, I'm open to corrections - modprobe may work differently, but I
can't think of any reason why it would.
