[filmscanners] RE: Help with Minolta Scan Multi II and Mac Powerbook G3



I know nothing about Macs so I cannot tell you if the scanner is or is not
compatibl;e with Mac OS 9.1; however,I suspect it is since you have another
Minolta scanner on the chain which works.  I would suggest you try placing
the new scanner in a different position in the daisy chain as well as in
relation to the other devices including the other scannerscanner, assign it
a different ID number, and/or check to make sure that it does not have any
sort if internal terminations set in addition to an external termination.
Sometimes film scanners get peculiar about their position in the daisy chain
as well as their position vis-a-vis another scanner.

Subject: [filmscanners] Help with Minolta Scan Multi II and Mac
Powerbook G3


Ok, I just purchased a new Minolta Scan Multi II since I am just going over
to medium format photography.  I know it's discontinued but I purchased it
new 'cause I could afford it right now (down to $700 at Samy's Camera in Los
Angeles), having just spent all my money on the camera system!

BUT.... the scanner seems not to want to work with my Mac powerbook.  It is
a SCSI which is ok since my G3 is the bronze keyboard with a SCSI connection
(I have every connection possibly now (with a firewire card as well) but...
it is part of a daisy chain (in the middle) that previously had only the
Minolta Dimage Scan Elite that I have been using (and do love) for 35mm and
an old Umax flatbed scanner.   The numbers and termination codes are
correctly set.

The scanner software occasionally shows up when I work through Photoshop but
it is causing major freezing problems on my computer (I am working in Mac OS
9.1).  I have yet to get a full scan out of it because of these issues.

Does anyone know what might be the problem?  I looked on VueScan and it does
not seem to be made for the Multi II.  My computer person thought there may
be a conflict with the two Minolta scanners, but we really do not know.  I
would prefer not to have to always disconnect one to use the other, the
connections are not that durable over time.


Thank so much!  I am frantically trying to get up and running here.
