Just FYI: I have a very old Epson Perfection 1660 that is recognized by
Xsane in Debian. I do think I had to modify a config file (epson2.conf) in
the directory /etc/sane.d/, adding "usb" and "net autodiscovery" (with no
quotes.) but this is unique to my setup. You might have a look to see if
there is a config file for your manufacturer.
