OK, this means that either your scanner is not known to the SCSI
system, or that you don't have permissions to access its device
files. Please re-run this command as the superuser (root), if that
doesn't give any different output, then your scanner is most likely
not known to the SCSI system. Also, "cat /proc/scsi/scsi" lists the
known SCSI devices.

If you expect us to help, please do yourself a favour and type the
commands we give exactly as they are, including any "_" and " "
characters and a distinction between lowercase and uppercase.
