Some HP USB scanners do not work

HP Scanjet G4050 and 4070 Photosmart USB scanners seem not to work with VB (Windows XP SP2 guest and Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon host on a 1 GB RAM HP Compaq dc7700, Intel Core2). Both scanners work flawlessly in a XP host on the same computer.
HP control software could be installed on the guest with no problem except by a slowdown of the installation process (took ~1 hour vs. ~10 minutes on the native Windows).
Both scanners show USB activity and are detected by the guest but the HP scanner wizard works fine until the point where the prescan should start, getting freezed several minutes and showing a communication error after. The tests were done with either USB EHCI enabled/disabled to no avail.
