Is the SCSI-generic driver really loaded (lsmod, check for "sg")?
Check that the SCSI generic devices are available (ls -l /dev/sg*).
Run sane-find-scanner with the "-v" to see what's happening. Also try
SANE_DEBUG_COOLSCAN=255 scanimage -L 
for more details about why the Coolscan backend doesn't detect your scanner.
