Found out:

1) 0x055f 0x040b is recognized /etc/udev/rules.d/025_libsane.rules:

SYSFS{idVendor}=="055f", SYSFS{idProduct}=="040b", MODE="0664", GROUP="scanner", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"

(libsane 1.0.19~cvs20071213-1 Debian Lenny) - but scanner not recognized by scanimage -L

2) Sane supported scanners search engine:

BearPaw 6400 TA Pro USB
Not supported. May be supported by mustek_usb2 backend later. See link for some information.

Looks like mustek_usb2 backend is the right choice.

But, how I get this backend working? There is no /etc/sane.d/mustek_usb2.conf

Where I can find the "offical" addev formular?
