I've bought a scanner that claims to be compatible with the built in Windows Imaging components.
When plugging the scanner into a USB2 or 3 port (directly in the computer, not via a hub) the lights light up on the scanner and it appears in device manager as a "USB Scanner 5MP". However I'm then unable to acquire an image from it in Windows Fax & Scan, Paint.NET, any Office app or the built in Windows 8 Scanning 'Modern' app.
The scanner doesn't have any buttons on it that I can press. It's a Veho VFS-002m and doesn't have any drivers on the CD that was bundled with it or the files that are downloadable from the website (as it claims it doesn't need drivers).
I've also tried using the scanner in Ubuntu 13.10. It appeared in dmesg when I connected it but the scanning software wouldn't pick it up there either.
Any suggestions on what else to try?
