cardscan 600cx business card scanner not read by xsane

I have a cardscan 600cx buisness card reader and i’d like to be able to use it in Suse. I have been trying the sane project for a couple of days because they seem to have support for cardscan 800.

i dont automatically get a /dev/usb/scanner0 in my machine when i plug in my scanner and i cant seem to be able to configure the backend to it. i have changed the product id in cardscan.conf to the device connected but i still get no positive responses after plugging in the scanner. I have talked to the manufacturer and they said that the 600cx and 800 are pretty much the same hardware.

My xsane output at debug level 3 is posted below
