I have the same scanner and it works flawlessly. Also many others use

How can altsetting[0] be 0? This means that an interface exists but no
altsetting. I'm not that used to the USB spec but I would be surprised
if this is allowed. Anyway, if your scanner does this, it can't scan
because it's broken. I rather assume that it happens with some other
device connected to your USB. Could you try to find out which device
behaves this way? And please send a log with USB debugging enabled:
SANE_DEBUG_SANEI_USB=255 scanimage -L

As an alernative to a strangely acting device, there could be a
problem with libusb. However, this is the first time I hear about such
I'll add some checks for altsetting !=0 to sanei_usb as they don't
harm. But I think the problem is somewhere else.

Could you send the output of "sane-find-scanner -v -v", please?

Which status exactly? Which line of the code? Please send a log file
of a scan where it blocks (without your change).
