How do I connect my Umax Powerlook III to my max 10.6.8 os x?


This scanner is Fast SCSI . It was made in 2001. You will need a card in your Mac for a SCSI interface. The cost of the card and scsi cable, if your Mac will accept one, will probably exceed the cost of a newer, high performance scanner. Time to move on? (Umax were not the greatest scanners even when they were made. Umax was a cheaper brand with mediocre software. So how will you get the image into the Mac once you have a connection? Power PC (OS 9) Mac software will not run on OS X.)

SCSI to USB Cable or Converter for Astra 2400S Scanner?


You need a Firewire/ SCSI adapter. Mine is a Belkin F5U541. Then simply connect a SCSI cable from the scanner to the adapter & a Firewire cable from the adapter to your Mac. I'm using my old Umax Astra 2400S w/ a G5 iMac running OSX 10.6.7. I had to upgrade my old copy of VueScan, however, to run on Snow Leopard

Will a Linotype Hell Ultra 2 Saphir run on a pC?


Yes. Just got mine running on Windows ME. Problem is getting the SCSI set up. Once you get that done, I used Vuescan (http://www.hamrick.com/) and it works. Slow, but functional. I have yet to get scans of the full scanner screen (10 x 14 inches). But 8 x 10 is working fine.

Umax Mirage II Flatbed scanner,3 flashing lights


Could be a SCSI termination issue. Try changing the SCSI address number on the scanner to a different one and make sure the chain is terminated properly. If there are multiple SCSI devices in the chain, disconnect all the others until you are sure the scanner is working then slowly add the other devices to the chain making sure everything works as each device is added. SCSI voodoo!

Trying to connect Umax PL 2100XL (SCSI) to G4 - scanner not found


I just told someone else this solution...KILL the SCSI junk...I had nothing but trouble with it with my Mac....I got a Ratoc Firewire to UltraSCSI Converter...to solve the regular SCSI to ultra SCSI problem...I also bought an adapter....It works great...no need for a SCSI card...or a driver...you just plug directly into your firewire port! If anyone can help me with my TA adapter startup problem...I'll be thrilled! Carole

I need to connect a Nikon LS2000 Slide Scanner to a Power Mac G4


I originally had the same problem but with a G5. Since Nikon never updated the software for the LS2000 to work with Apple I ended up buying a FR1SX adapter from RATOC Systems: http://www.ratocsystems.com/english/products/FR1SX.htmlwhich connects the SCSI pins to a Firewire cable. Then I purchased the VueScan software from http://www.hamrick.com/vsm.html. The scanner worked for several years with this combination.

Interfase doesnt work, cable is damaged.


I should be a scsi 2 cable -- 50-pin mini-din male/male...

Double check the scanner and the card, if you don't know the difference between mini-din and regular, let me know and I'll try to find images to show you.

Can't recognize scsi device - Eversmart II Pro Scanner


UPDATE:


I've now managed to solve this initial problem by installing the relevant extension for the SCSI PCI card, however when I try to launch the scanner software the error message 'No communication with scanner" pops up

I've tried the obvious cables check etc. Any ideas?

Thanks
