I don't appear to have such a group on my machine 

    bash # grep plugdev /etc/group
    bash #

and nothing relevant seems to be owned by the group

    bash # ls -ld /dev/usb/scanner0 /etc/sane.d/ /etc/sane.d/plustek.conf
    crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root     180,  48 Mar 14  2002 /dev/usb/scanner0
    drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root         3072 Jan 22 23:52 /etc/sane.d
    -rw-r--r--    1 root     root         2968 Jan 22 23:21 /etc/sane.d/plustek.conf

Even root doesn't seem to be able to find the scanner.

    bash # sane-find-scanner 

    found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8, product=0x010f) at /dev/usb/scanner0
    found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8, product=0x010f, chip=LM983x?) at libusb:001:002
      # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
      # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

    bash # scanimage -L

    No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
    check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
    sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
    which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

Thanks.  By the way, I'm subscribed, no need to Cc: me.
