[filmscanners] Re: Epson scanner drivers will not stay installed



Two thoughts:

25 pins on the computer and 50 pins on the device was the standard SCSI 
configuration for
years. 25-to-50 cables are probably more common than 50-to-50 cables. The extra 
25 lines
are just grounds (individually paired to each data line) and only really need 
to be
connected at one end. If, however, the scanner is really 68 pins, not 50, it 
may well not
work with this old SCSI card even with an adapter.

Totally different OS, totally different interface, but... on an OS 9 Mac my 
Sprintscan 120
installed it's own Firewire drivers that made Firewire access nearly impossible 
for
everything else, and made my USB slightly odd as well. My suggestion would be 
to use
Vuescan (which, unlike Polacolor, does NOT need the goofy Firewire driver)  and 
excise
every last bit of Polaroid software.
