 Apologies for the delay in replying.

I should probably have mentioned this before but I'm compiling and running
SANE on Windows with Cygwin, I don't know how much that changes things. I
have successfully used SANE with this setup with an Epson printer so I know
it can work.

They were reported by sane-find-scanner as:

found USB scanner (vendor=0x05e3, product=0x0144) at libusb:001:009

The vendor code matches the other Reflecta scanners that pieusb supports
which is why I thought to use that backend. I'll have a go at catching the
traffic though with scanners default driver, what sort of things would you
be looking out for?
