Can anyone advise me if a scanner card only works with the scanner that came with it or are they universal?
If they are interchangeable, can a scanner with a PCI scsi card work with an ISA scsi card?

Scsi cards are universal and most are backwards compatable, providibg the same cable pin configuration is the same.

I had an HP Scanjet and the card died, I bought one from a carboot sale for a quid and it worked fine.....so probably yes.
