Unfortunately, the 3970c is listed (by sane) as an Unsupported device.

The comments on th sane mailingl ist:

Chris,

Do you like writing drivers?

You may find if you scour the Internet someone has actually done that for you.

I'm trying some google searches but have little Internet time, so I recommend you do a little poking around yourself.

Some interesting backup to Stuart's post, validing his statement.

You can find SANE backends for this scanner here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/hp3900-series

or here:

http://jkdsoftware.dyndns.org/english.php

It contains packages for debian (deb) and SuSE (rpm) and source code is available.
