    Well, it's not 100% certain that it would be a module (it's not on my
    system for instance) but when SCSI is running, sg will appear in the
    list consulted by find-scanner -- /proc/drivers

    On all the systems I've ever looked at it was called just 'sg' so probably
    whoever said 'sg_mod' was taking about a newer (older?) kernel. Try

    modprobe sg

    In the case that you just don't seem to have a SCSI generic module at all
    you're no longer looking at a SANE problem - get someone to help you
    make SCSI generic work and everything else should fall into place. If
    you have vendor support that would be a good time to invoke it.
