Hi all, my USB scanner gave up the ghost. My question is I have an old HP Scanjet scanner which is SCSI, if I were to but a PCI SCSI card and install it in my DP867 (OSX) am I going to be able to use it? I have VuescanX which says it supports all HP SCSI scanners, but this is an oldie.

Thanks

I have a really old Relisys Avec Colour SCSI Scanner and it is the only SCSI device I have not successfully used on my SCSI card.

Relisys disappeared in 1992 or 93 and I have not found a general scanning utilites that lists support, so I have fixed up an old 7100 to run as a scanning station as well entertain my daughter

Good luck

It costs only slight less to get a current 1260 USB scanner that IS supported in X than to get a scsi card for an old slow scanner that MIGHT be supported. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Chances are that your SCSI-based scanner isn't supported in Mac OS X. Most SCSI external devices lost their Mac support in Mac OS X, and OS X doesn't officially support SCSI, either.

FWIW, I have an old (and cheap) Microtek E3 scanner and it works beautifuly in OS X via VueScan ($40 USD) and Adaptec 2906 PCI SCSI card.

There's a very good chance it'll work for you. I'd check with the developer of VueScan...but USB scanners are pretty cheap these days, so consider the cost of the SCSI card, etc. before you make the final decision.

Update.

Got hold of a used 2930 SCSI card, and using Vuescan my old HP Scanjet IIcx is online.
