are you doing this as root? does it show up when you run lsusb?

well, that means you have a newer firmware than i have seen, but if
the machine does not show up with lsusb, then you have bigger issues.

if we can get those resolved, then we can get a debug log:

SANE_DEBUG_EPJITSU=15 scanimage -L 2>s300.log

then email me that s300.log file, and I'll have a look.
