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.
