You are at the right place. However, I don't know your scanner.

Yes, but it's not detected by the scanner driver: Driver=(none)!
Example for a Mustek USB scanner:
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 3 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=usbscanner

Usually these are links. Do NOT create /dev/scanner. If you like, you
can create /dev/usbscanner (or /dev/usb/scanner) by just linking it to
Probably you need to tell the scanner module which scanner it should
modprobe scanner vendor=0x04a5 product=0x207e
Check the syntax, I didn't look at the docs for that.
