Have you tried to use YAST2 to set up the scanner?? I had similar
problems with an HP SCSI scanner. There are some entries that are
needed in /etc/sane.d and YAST2 will make them.

Also try sane-find-scanner (a command) and see if it finds your
scanner. Even if it does, the entries above are still needed.
