My scanner died and I'm looking for a simple USB scanner. All the stuff I checked in the compatible hardware list is so old no one sells it. Could some body suggest a cheap, current, compatible scanner?

I have just bought a shiny new Canon MG6250 multifunction printer/scanner and connected it via LAN. Installing the printing side of things was a breeze, however, I cannot work out how to set up scanning.
I installed the MG6200 series ScanGear MP driver from Canon's site but when I open GIMP or Simple Scan, they say there is no scanner detected.
Using a scanner in Linux is somewhat different than using that same scanner hardware in Windows. This week's Linux Picks focuses on how the XSane scanner app handles that process. In the Windows world, scanner hardware is TWAIN-compatible through manufacturer-developed scanning software.
I have SANE and SANE-scanner installed in my Ubuntu 12.04 box. I have an Epson V500 flatbed scanner, tied by USB to my machine. On my network I also have an HP All-in-One that has scanner functionality. Both are detected by the computer as scanners. I want to always use the Epson scanner but can't find a way to tell SANE-scanner to use the (second listed) Epson scanner.
I am trying to read a file with a Scanner so I can use the input of the strings to construct other objects. However my scanner is always throwing a NullPointerException when trying to create it. I have a pig.txt text file in the res/raw folder but my scanner can not seem to access it. I do not know what I am doing wrong.
I recently installed Crunchbang on my desktop computer, which has been my scanning workhorse this far. I have an old Agfa Duoscan F40 flatbed scanner and on WinXP I used Vuescan, which also works on Linux, for all my scanning. After plugging in the scanner (USB) and turning it on, and launching Vuescan, the application doesn't detect the scanner.
I decided to try the 64 bit version of 12.04
I have gone through the driver install procedures that have worked for the 32 bit OS but can't seem to find the reason why Xsane and Simple scan don't see my scanner.
The scanner is a Brother MFC3220C.
sane-find-scanner seems to find the device:
