Acer ScanPrimo ST 1220ST to work with Windows 7 and a PCI host adapter works just fine I use it every day. The key is to use a third party scanner software called Vue Scan 9.0.57 and using the following start-up procedure so Windows 7 can find the scanner on the SCSI controller. First open windows device manager, then turn on scanner, immediately right mouse click in device manager and select scan for new devices. Windows 7 will immediately find the scanner. It seems that windows will only see the scanner through the SCSI interface during the scanners startup sequence. It has been a while but I believe this works with Mira Scan V4.03 as well.
were you using it under windows xp? if you have 32 bit windows 7 I would try those same drivers. Unfortunately the filmscan 200 came out under windows 95/98 and so Epson never released XP drivers and some people were able to make it work. I would consider connecting it to an older computer running windows 98 and then transfer the files as you scan them (this would definitely be the least painful) If you have 64 bit windows 7 I would not even waste the effort, 32 bit is a long shot maybe. Do you have scsi drivers on the the windows 7? because the filmscan 200 is a scsi 2 device Good luck
SCSI to USB converters are available, but I doubt they will be of much help for you, you'd still need a special driver for your scanner. Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate support "XP Mode", essentially a Windows XP environment running in a virtual machine. I'd try to get the SCSI interface card and scanner to run inside the VM as a workaround.
If your macbook doesn't have the correct SCSI card (SCSI II - d-sub mini 50 pin x2 connector) installed, you aren't going to be able to do this. You will need to find this SCSI card and install it in a computer that will accept it.
You should be able to download the proper drivers for your Operating System directly from Microtek:
Since you didn't tell us which country you're located in, or which OS you're using, I can't provide any more specific information for you...
The Download page is located here, for users in the US:
From what I could determine, the X6 model was discontinued some time ago, and there were at least THREE versions of it; you'll have to find it listed under the Product Category in the Discontinued Products section, then choose the version (parallel port / EPP, SCSI, or USB), in order to download the driver you need. Seems that the SCSI version has drivers ONLY for Apple computers; if you're using Windows, you'll need to choose one of the other options...
