The Memorex MEM48u has been reported to work with the artec_eplu48u backend, 
but IIRC no one told me, that it has a different product ID. 
Unfortunately, the backend isn't included in sane-1.0.9, therefore you 
should download the latest version from http://www.mostang.com/sane 
(sane-backends-1.0.11.tar.gz). Compile and install it. Afterwards, take a 
look at the file artec_eplus48u.conf.
Change e.g. the line
 usb 0x05d8 0x4003
 usb 0x05d8 0x4005
and add the path to the firmware in line
 option artecFirmwareFile <path>/Artec48.usb

Please let me know, whether it works.
