Which version of sane backends are you using? The latest version, 
sane-backends-1.0.17, should automatically distinguish between 2480 
and 2580 and adjust the preview range accordingly. 

The code, however, is not very well tested and relies on a few data 
logs from 2480 / 2580 users that I've received. If it doesn't work 
for your scanner please send me the output of 
SANE_DEBUG_SNAPSCAN=255 xsane 2>debug.log
(No need to do any scans, just close xsane after it has started).
