Sometimes Linux drivers are more critical conecrning termination and
cable issues. So maybe you want to check this also (Termination at
both ends, cable is how long?)

At least the SCSI driver seems to work in principle.
Some drivers need options to get them working with scanners, e.g.
disable disconnect/reconnect. I don't know this driver so you may want
to look ath the documentation of the scsi driver.

It looks like something in the SCSI mlayer went wrong. The error

sgcheck just looks for SCSI devices and prints out the coresponding
device file. As SANE finds your scanner, you don't need sgcheck.
