I am trying to connect a ScanMate 5000 (with a 50pin SCSI connector--I believe this is called an HD-50) to an Apple iMac Flatpanel (G4). I have USB ports and Firewire ports available but alas no SCSI ports on this machine.
I just read this thread (http://www.applefritter.com/node/6924) and see that some have been able to get a USB to SCII adapter to work under OS X. This requires that you set the SCSI port to 0. Alas my scanner only goes from 1 - 6. No zero. So...
Anyone know if there is a workable Firewire to SCSI solution for OS X? I found this part (http://sewelldirect.com/firewire-to-scsi-adapter.asp) and the reseller claims that it will work under OS X. Any experience/help would be appreciated.
Specifically I note that this is an Ultra SCSI adapter. The description says that it comes with a "High-Density 50 pin Male connector". I presume this means that it is compatible with my connector. Can anyone confirm? Also, does anyone know if I will have any Ultra SCSI to plain old SCSI compatibility problems?
