Hi Dave,

unfortunately I have no experiences with OS X and SANE. But I will cc this 
mail to the SANE mailing list, hopefully someone can tell you some more 
But I'm not sure if you can get your scanner to work out of the box because 
there needs to be a piece of software that translates the USB signals to SCSI 
commands that are used in the scanner software (backend). In Linux there is a 
kernel module (microtek.c); I don't know if there is something similar under 
OS X.  ( SANE experts, please comment on this...)
