Re: filmscanners: SS4000 SCSI question.
Go for an adapter. Buying them locally is best so nothing gets
confused (male/female, type of connector, etc) and you can return it if
things still don't come out right. Are you sure it's 60 pins? High
density 50 pin is common. I'd go from the SCSI card to the SS4000 then to
the HP. The SS4000 has a switch for termination. So if you unplugged the
HP it would be easy to keep the SCSI chain terminated.
Hope this helps,
