[filmscanners] RE: SCSI support on a Mac Pro



Evidently, this adapter/converter still is on the market; but it works only
with SCSI-2 from what I have been able to determine.  If one has a SCSI-1
device, one might have to get a converter to convert from SCSI-1 to SCSI-2
in or4der to use the Ratoc FR1SX.  The Ratoc FR1SX, at $109 USD, is
expensive and the addition of a SCSI-1 to SCSI-2 adapter will make the
conversion even more expensive.
