HI, Sarah!

Perhaps you just got a bad one.  I've had mine for a couple of years, now,
and like it very much (yes, I'd rather have more resolution like the
Polaroid SS120, but I can't afford it right now!

I suggest you try it with nothing else on the SCSI chain.  be sure that the
termination switch on the back is set to ternination on, with a scsi ID of
6.  That works for me (but mine also works on a chain with a UMAX flatbed
and an external hard drive and DAT backup).

Good luck!  You won't find anything better for medium format for the price

I asked a question about the Minolta MultiScan II a couple of days ago (and
never saw the answers actually since my computer went kaput a little bit
'cause of the Scan MultiII) but.... I've just returned it.  It simply will
not work on my SCSI chain and doesn't seem to want to scan with the 120
holder alone.  So, my problem:

Although I work and love the Minolta Scan Elite for 35mm, since I have just
started to go medium format, I need to find a scanner to work with but... i
cannot spend over $1,000., if that.   The MultiScan II was take out of
catalog by Minolta and offered at approx $700 at Samy's Camera in LA.

But.... I need to be able to scan medium format for at least 400 + output as
I am starting to do some photo-illustration for the children's books I write
and I need a scanner that can do this.  Is there any flatbed that can?  Or a
medium format scanner I don't know about that might be at least near price

If it were only photos only I wouldn't care as much since a publisher would
simply scan the film with a professional drum scanner, but for manipulated
and changed work, some of it not photo, I have to have it right within the

Any suggestions as the way to go to at least start to get what I need with
120 (645) tranparencies?

BTW, I work on a Apple powerbook G3, with SCSI and USB and I have added a
firewire card.  I am trying to stay away from any further SCSI units however
based upon this experience and rumors that Apple will not support it much
