Sorry for your struggles. However, you can get SCSI cards for your Mac
for much less that $300.
for several options under $100, as low as $50. I personally use the
Initio BlueNote PCI ($80 on this site) on my PowerMac G4 450DP (originally
on my G3/300) and it works fine with my Canon FS2710 film scanner, UMAX
1200S flatbed, and an old SCSI CD-R drive. No drivers or extensions
needed. It also worked with the Acer ScanWit 2720 and VueScan back on the
G3, though I have not tried that combo on my G4 (I borrowed the ScanWit).
