Re: filmscanners: Fast, decent, low res scans

Not being a "Mac" person, I'm a bit out of my league, but Acer indicates 
the SCSI card they provide is "proprietary", and will not work with 
other devices.  I don't know if this is just a software driver matter, 
or if they really have some unique SCSI protocols.

Maybe Ed Hamrick can shed some light, since I think he's analyzed the 
SCSI command set with the Acer products.
