[filmscanners] Re: SCSI support on a Mac Pro



I've been using a Belkin F5U541 SCSI  <-> Firewire converter with a
Polaroid SS4000 on a Mac G5 (10.4.11) using VueScan. Works pretty
well but does hang up sometimes requiring a restart. Don't know about
using it under Leopard, though.

Regards,
Roger Smith
