I'm a little surprised that nothing is detected, but regardless, the scanner is not supposed to be Windows 7 compatible: Windows 7 Compatibility for mustek bearpaw 1200cu: Drivers, Updates, Downloads
The latest drivers that Mustek lists for it are more than 10 years old: BearPaw 1200CU
I suppose that if you were running Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you could run XP Mode (Windows XP running in a VM), but it'd have to be a really great scanner for it to be worth the trouble.
