For your Samsung ML-1640, go here and get the samsung_printer-3.00.65.pet.

I believe that your Benq 5000 scanner should be detected by SANE, but it may require a firmware download. Run the following commands. What do they detect? Report back.
Code:
sane-find-scanner
scanimage -L

In the post above, I provided a link to a Samsung driver PET. Have you installed it yet? Did you get the printer installed in CUPS?

You have not answered my questions about your Benq scanner.
