It seems the CX-3700 is currently supported by both the epkowa backend
and the epson backend. It's definitely not supported by the snapscan
backend, so anything mentioned on snapscan.sourceforge.net doesn't

I'm not an expert on the epson backend, but it should be able to
recognize your scanner if you just put the IDs into epson.conf, e.g.
usb 0x04b8 0x0818
After that your sanner should be recognized by scanimage -L.
The epkowa backend is not part of the SANE distribution, you have to
install it separately. You can get it from
http://www.avasys.jp/english/linux_e/dl_scan.html . It also provides
it's own documentation.
