Everyone who gets timeouts/USB errors with these two scanners and
sane-backends 1.0.14 please use the following workaround:
Comment out the "epson" line in dll.conf (/etc/sane.d/ or

The epson backend seems to try to talk to these scanners because they
are Epson scanners. As they are supported by the plustek backend (not
epson) the scanners don't like the epson commands and USB errors occur.

See bug 300751 for details:

I guess that bug didn't show up before the 1.0.14 release because the
automatic detection for USB scanners in the epson backend wasn't
turned on.
