I'm not sure if this was the case for sane-backends 1.0.7 but
nowerdays the HP multi-function devices are supported by the "hpoj"
backend which is not part of the SANE distribution. Have a look at
http://hpoj.sourceforge.net/suplist.shtml , there is also a mailing

You can find out which backend you use by running "scanimage -L". The
part before the first ":" is the name of the backend.
