SANE doesn't really deal with SCSI drivers, that's a job for the kernel.

At least with older Linux kernels, there were quite some problems with
the ACARDs. Some information is on
http://www.meier-geinitz.de/sane/docu.html#SCSI (search for Acard).
However, it's from Mustek users so it may not be the excat same problem.
