That's the "Minolta DiMAGE Scan Elite 5400"?
I don't think so. That scanner is not even mentioned in our lists. Can
you provide more details about the scanner? E.g. the output of
"cat /proc/bus/usb/devices" and "sane-find-scanner -v -v" when the
scanner is plugged in.

Usually the reason is simple: None of the users of this scanner has
started the development effort :-)
If the scanner uses the same chipset as one of the already supported
devices, a SANE developer may be able to adjust the code easily. On
the other hand if it's a completely new or unsupported chipset, it's
up to you or another owner of such a device to write a backend.
