Just come across this:-

To the rest of the list:
There is a bug in feisty with handling of some USB scanners, where scan
tools (xscanimage, etc) can't scan successfully. At least 3 bugs have
been filed in launchpad:
* 85488 some usb_devices fault if usb_suspend enabled
* 93515 Regression from edgy: Unable to scan properly
* 86022 Canon scanner doesn't work

Something in feisty breaks access to some USB scanners (both native in
feisty, and also for VMware virtual machines that are hosted by feisty)
