I see my self as a programmer, though it's been a while I've written in C.
So I'd like some guidence on how to communicate with a usb device in C, as
I've primariely done GUI, cryptographic and socket programming in C++.

Greetings and best wishes

I have a CanoScan 8400F. As far as I can see from the specification pages of
the 2 scanners on sane-project, they share exactly 1 chip and have a very
similar second chip. However USB chip seems to be differnt.
Also, from the specification on the canon homepage they seem similar.

As mentioned in an earlier post, I am not a programmer but willing to help
in the development of the genesys-backend (to which the 8400F is supposed to
be added). So perhaps, a very similar driver will drive both scanners, at
least in the basic functionality. Perhaps I could help you?
