SCSI to USB conversion for Film Scanner

I have a ACER Scanwit 2720S film scanner which connects to my PC via a SCSI card installed in my PC. The drivers are only maintained up to Windows XP so probably excludes any option to change my PC to Windows 7 machine.
Can I get a convertor to connect the SCSI 25 pin output from the scanner to USB. And will I need some alternative S/Ware?

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.

OVT scanner does not calibrate nor allow "acquire picture"


I had a similar problem. Driver of scanner was ok.
Went to configuration->device manager-> in list checked the USB controllers and updated the Enhanced usb2 controller. Reboot and re-install de scanner driver. Most likely this will solve your problem

Scanning Size


Do not try to change the scan size, change the resolution. The window that appears when you want to scan should have a resolution (DPI) area that can be changed. IE: 300 DPI to 800 DPI. This changes the picture size.
