The output for "model" and for "type" look quite wrong. While a few
scanners indeed do not provide proper vendor/model information, at least
the "type" field should show "Scanner" or "Processor". I suspect that
your hardware is broken. Check the cables and the termination of the
SCSI bus. If these thigs look ok, you should try to connect the scanner
to another adapter and/or to connect another SCSI device to the adapter.
