I believe that thoughts were expressed in attempts to help you figure out why your system does not work as intended.

Scanning works! So yes there are many who can successfully scan.

I believe scanning works, but I think it either "just works" or "never works," because no one seems to even have a suggestion of anything to try. People either say "it just worked for me" or "I never got it working either," and a lack of process for debugging indicates a lack of understanding of process.

But after 3-4 scanners on many machines I'm willing to believe it's just luck when it does work, and if it doesn't you replace the scanner, computer, distribution, and USB cable and try again. ;-)

As noted, I need it working, there are no paths to get it working other than buying more scanners in hope that a miracle will occur, so I moved on.
