I tried to find a sane driver for my Reflecta ProScan 7200.
There seems to be none, at least according to most of the websites

Try to use 'lsusb' that will tell you among other stuff ID and then
with that go to the and try searching again.

Reflecta does not appear as a company that is manufacturing scanners, so
it could be that model is supported under original manufacturer
drivers, but not yet in a SANE project database.

Do I really have to switch on my Windows machine for that?

If that is the only solution, then yes.

Linux is operating system with the best hardware support out of the
box, but it is not a magic box that just works with anything that one
can throw at it.

One of the problems that I have seen before (mentioned above) is that
some brand name device is not recognized because no one reported that
hardware ID and driver is not automatically installed.
