i have not gotten into pleasure of 64 bit yet, so i can not comment
on how and why of work/not work.

check: to search for backend drivers.

i copied all my scanner files that i still had and will check back thru
them to see where i found what i need for xsane and gimp.

can not help with iscan, do not believe it was released when i set up
scanner. which i have not done again as it was on loan and now returned.

your i386 drivers may not work due to a changes in code from time of
i386 and now x86_64.

in some cases, cpu may be needed, but in most all, device model is best
