Bryan,
No, but I hear rumblings it may be able to be done. The issue is the
firewire kernel supplied by Microsoft does not support scanners. A scanner
manufacturer can write their own kernel but is takes more resources in time
and money than we have at this time with the scheduled new products and
general upgrades.
Nikon has documented a procedure that essentially uses components from ME.
Microsoft usually frowns on crossing OS components but I am told in this
case they have recommended this for firewire. I have looked briefly several
times for the procedure on the Microsoft knowledge base with no luck. I have
it on good authority it is there just do not know where.
If any Nikon users have successfully used this procedure I would be
interested to hear.

I have posted this response to the two scanner lists to see if anyone has
any info.
Regards
David

David,

To the best of your knowledge, has Polaroid ever managed to make firewire
work on Win 98SE (with any adapter)?

Many thanks.

Bryan

Larry,
Polaroid does "officially" support ANY USB/SCSI or Firewire/SCSI adapters.
That being said the only ones that success has been reported with are
Adaptec and OrangeMicro. Adaptec seems to have the most success. MicroTech
particularly have failed.

I just purchased the Belkin SCSI to USB adapter to scan through my laptop
when I go to Florida for six weeks.

I had no trouble using Vuescan but with Insight only half the image scans
properly.

I'll set it up later today and do a screen capture.
