I don't know about Mac, but the cheapo Adaptec 2904CD SCSI card (sold for 
interfacing CDR's for ~29GBP, so probably $30US) works absolutely fine 
with filmscanners on a PC. The 'CD' bit is marketing nonsense, to try and 
persuade you to spend more. It's a bog standard PCI PnP SCSI2 card with no 
boot ROM. No prosumer filmscanner needs anything faster, nor will they 
scan any quicker.
