Looks like you've confimed that there's an issue with the scanner (which might be up to 17 years old) so it may be time to let go. I see from the specs that the scanner also supports Windows, so maybe before you send it to that great recycle bin in the sky, you give it one more shot at life, by connectiong it to a Windows machine.

Agfa SnapScan... • Answered on Aug 12, 2014

I have an Agfa SnapScan 1212u, and it has always done a great job for me. I was furious when I found out that Agfa quit updating the drivers several years back. It was actually some time after I'd updated to 10.6 before I needed to scan a large batch of images, and I realized Scanwise X no longer worked. However, there are SEVERAL solutions you can use!
You will need the SANE package (5 small files that will add SANE support to MacOS 10.6+). You can find all 5 files at Once you install the library, you will have several options. You can get VueScan, which runs $39 and is a high-end scanning software program. You can get Graphic Converter, which also runs $39 and supports SANE and TWAIN as image import methods (this is the method I use). Plus, the program is an extremely powerful tool for image conversion (it supports file formats back to the TRS-80, DOS, Amiga, Atari, etc. days) and editing. If you're going to pay, I think this is the way to go.
You can use Snac, which is free. I was going to use this, and it ran fine for me under OS 10.6.6, but it would never recognize my scanner... You can also try ScanAgain, which is also free, but it was not stable on my MacBook.
