I don't own such a device. I got a report via the "add unsupported
device" form. I've asked for USB vendor/product ids but haven't gotten
an answer yet. I'll cite the mail so you can ask the author if you are
interested in details:

| 2. Manufacturer (e.g. "Mustek"):
|    'Hewlett Packard'

| 3. Model name (e.g. ScanExpress 1200UB):
|    'Scanjet 8200'
| --
| 4. Bus type:
|    'USB'

| 5. Vendor- and product id:

| 7. Comments (e.g. similar to Mustek 1234):
|    'I'm impressed with this HP scanner.  It's a true 4800 x 4800 dpi
