I have an Epson V500 scanner. I can use it in linux, but the Epson Scan software it came with does very cool batch processing. It works in Virtualbox, but since the Epson Scan software is windows software, is there any chance it would run with Wine? I'm not sure if this kind of software is wineable.

If it is just a software package that uses the scanner, it might work. However, if it needs a specific Epson driver to do its thing, forget about it. Either way, give it a shot, its not like you can really break anything by trying.

If i am not wrong wine does not support USB, so you can't use it

Wine supports my USB joystick and gamepad... for most games.
