here at Mandriva we got two new scanners from HP for testing/hardware 
certification: ScanJet 3800 and ScanJet 4890. Both do not work with 
current SANE. I have run the following commands on them:

lsusb -vvv
sane-find-scanner -v -v

On the SANE has found a GL841 chipset and so I tried to run it with the 
"genesys" backend. I added "usb 0x03f0 0x1b05" to genesys.con and ran

SANE_DEBUG_GENESYS=255 scanimage -L

but also without success.

The output of all commands you find here:


I wanted to add the 4890 (the 3800 is already there) to the list of 
unsupported scanners via


but the data was not accepted. I got an error message that in one of the 
fields invalid data was entered. Therefore I post the info here on the list.
