Question help with scanner in FC3

When I boot with my UMAX 4000U USB scanner I can't get the computer to detect it. Can someone please provide info for how (if it is even possible) I can get this to work?

I admit I'm ignorant on scanners interfacing with the Linux system and appreciate any help you can provide.

Thanks,
linuxted

Here is some info on my system:

OK. First we have to find out if this is a SANE (scanner) problem or a USB problem.
Code:
/sbin/lsusb
Any sign of your scanner there? If not, it's a USB problem. Check by tailing the system messages log while you unplug and replug the scanner.
Code:
su -
(enter root password)
tail -f /var/log/messages &
There should be some sign of activity.
If you do see your scanner here, go back to the root CLI and type
Code:
sane-find-scanner
Does the script find your scanner as root? If so, try
Code:
scanimage -L
If this works, then try the previous two steps as a non-root user. If they don't work here then it's likely a permissions problem. Let us know how you go.

$/sbin/lsusb
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 1606:1030 Umax [hex]
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 03f0:3a02 Hewlett-Packard
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 045e:0053 Microsoft Corp.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

Thus it does see the scanner

[root]$sane-find-scanner

# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
# Also you need support for SCSI Generic (sg) in your operating system.
# If using Linux, try "modprobe sg".

found USB scanner (vendor=0x1606, product=0x1030) at libusb:003:002
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

# Not checking for parallel port scanners.

# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# can't be detected by this program.

So I'm not sure what is going on...

OK - so sane-find-scanner found your scanner. So keep going...
Code:
scanimage -L

Ok, well with the scanner plugged and powered I get the following:

$scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).



I double checked that the sane-find-scanner is still seeing it.

I went online to the sane site and found that this scanner (UMAX 4000U) is unsupported, so I filled out one of their forms to see if someone there can help as well. Is this a case of no driver? If so, am I out of luck???

I have the same problem with my HP PSC 2410 (all-in-one) scanner. It´s connected to the USB-port.
The commando: ¨sane-find-scanner¨ detects a printer on my USB-port, but with: ¨scanimage -L¨ nothing is being recognized.

However, in FC3 it worked fine.
