This scanner is not currently supported by sane. However, in March
there was a discussion about this scanner, which implied that it uses
a Genesys Logic GL847 chipset. Stef has recently added support for
this chipset to the sane-genesys backend. So, it may be possible to
make the modifications required to support this machine, if you use a
current git snapshot of sane-backends. Perhaps you and Catalin David
can work together, with some advice from stef?
