For this reason we suggest to use a 'FireWire to SCSI' adapter.
You will find an overview of which adapters you can use for connecting your scanner in the following. We have successfully tested these adapters:
- For Macintosh G3 and G4 as well as for PC systems with PCI slot:
- Adaptec 2930 PCI
- Adaptec 2906 PCI
- Adaptec AIC 7850 PCI
- For Macintosh G5:
- Acard AEC 67160
For newer Macintosh and PC systems without PCI slot:
- Ratoc 'FireWire to SCSI' adapter
(Please NEVER install or use the Ratoc utility CD!)
A standard FireWire 6pin to 4pin adapter can be used to connect the Ratoc adapter to a FireWire 800 port.
There are many other adapters that might also work. If you have successfully connected your scanner using an adapter not listed above, we kindly ask you to send us a short note so that other scanner owners may also benefit.
