SCSI to USB cable/adaptor

  Gibcol 10:43 20 May 2003

I have a scanner with SCSI connection but my new computer only offers USB. Before instlling a SCSI card can anyone update me on this subject? Postings in 2001 on this seem to indicate that such a connection is possible but in Feb 2003 the advice is that such a connection isn't possible.
Anyone more recent information?

they do exist but at arond £70 plus VAt you would be better off geeting a cheap PCI SCSI Card on eBay for around £20.00 or a really good LVD SCSI card for around £40.00 (such as Adaptec 2940U2W). Then you can add SCSI zip drives, hard drives cd, cdrw, dvd etc.

As you may have gathered I'm a SCSI fan.

SCSI is much more flexible the IDE and much is now very cheap, and much faster than IDE or usb 1

Many thansk mrdsgs.
I do still have an Adaptec card on the old machine which I can remove and re-install I just thought it simpler if I could do it via one of the 6 USB prots I have now but at the prices you suggest I think I will be sqwapping the card over.
many thanks again.
