thank you for the quick response.
I downloaded the files you suggested and tried to follow the instructions in the cs3200f.txt file within. This instructed me to run configure after placing the relevant files in the backends folder which worked fine. Then I tried to make but ran into an issue again.
The file states:
"Now, in dir $SOMEDIR/sane-backends/backend you must add
to the Makefile the following lines
(e.g. before the line starting libsane-dc25.la: ...)
libsane-cs3200f.la: ../sanei/sanei_constrain_value.lo
... (shortened for brevity)"
which I did add those lines around line 2630 of the Makefile in question. See my gist here https://gist.github.com/dklenke/b02e6349dcce2b5b6f4b9c9d13d0efc2 again for a how I did that.
Then when running "make >make.log 2>&1" in the backends folder the log showed these errors:
pi at raspberrypi:~/sane-backend/backend $ cat make.log
make all-am
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/pi/sane-backend/backend'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'libsane-cs3200f.la', needed by 'all-am'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/pi/sane-backend/backend'
make: *** [Makefile:4265: all] Error 2

What did I do wrong here?
Again thank you for you help an Best regards,

The sane documentation lists the scanner as unsupported but says in the comments: "Actually this scanner is supported by the experimental cs3200f backend now".
