This scanner is supported by the microtek2 backend. This backend 
supports USB scanners using the microtek kernel module, which only 
exists on Linux. Until someone reimplements the functionality of that 
kernel module using libusb it won't work on any other platform 
including MacOS X. I have no idea if anyone is working on doing that...
