Your scanner needs its firmware to be loaded before you can scan. If you 
had a Windows session before your Linux session this had be done 
already, but if you start with Linux, Linux must do it. See the comments 
in the file /etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf or enter the command

    man sane-snapscan

for more information.
