    Hi all,

    I need a bit of info on a device I found in a box of surplus stock... it's an Orange Micro SCSI to Firewire (IEEE1394) model 70HTL00010 - Standard 25-pin SCSI female connector to standard Firewire 6-pin female connector.

    I discovered that Orange Micro went belly up a few years ago, and I don't have the instruction manual for the device. There seems to be very little concrete info on the web about that device. What I specifically need to know is the voltage of the power adapter (missing) of this device. From what I gathered, it can run without the adapter, but some SCSI devices will require it...

    Any link to a PDF file or just the voltage of the adapter would be very helpful! I was thinking of trying to run a nice SCSI slide scanner through the Firewire port of my G5 with that converter...:eek:

    - Thanks

    Hi ,
    I have a exact model, new in the box. The power adaptor has the following specs: Input: 120VAC 60 Hz 0.1A MAX
    Output: VDC 500mA

    I also have original CD with installer software and User's manual.
    I can send a copy of them to you if you wish.
    I hope this helps.

    interested in buying the SCSI Firewire converter

    Hey there,

    I just found your thread - I'm about to get an old UMAX scanner and I'm trying to figure a way to connect the scsi port to OSX.

    Any chance that you would be interested in selling one of your Orange Converter cables to me? My email is stambler (at) - just change the (at) to @ and have no spaces.

    Sorry, but I need the software too

    Hi, I have the Orange Micro SCSI-Firewire converter, but my cd got snapped in 2 while moving house. Could someone send me the software please?

    The software is really only for OS9. The hardware is supported under OSX.

    Now for the power supply

    Thanks for the answer to the previous question.

    I think I also need the power supply and want to confirm its specs.

    I can see from the internet that it is an AC to 9V DC 500mA positive tip, but what size is the tip? The hole seems to be a similar size to the one for my Ratoc FR1SX power supply which has a 4.0 x 1.7 mm Tip. Is the orange one the same?

    This is infuriating! My FR1SX worked perfectly for a whole day with my Imacon 848 scanner on my new iMac & now won't work at all. I've read posts on the net from people with the same problem but no solution. I'm on the correct firmware & Hasselblad scanning software, but now have to try my old Orange converter.

    Thanks for helping keep me sane :)

    Hello, I realize this is two years after-the-fact, but if you happen to still have the Orange Converter Installer v1.2, I would really appreciate a copy, as my disc was discovered cracked, much to my disappointment and frustration.

    Oh, and I would appreciate both the Mac and Windows installers, please. Thank you.
