    Does anyone have an old SCSI cable that would go from the CPU to a scanner that they want to part with?

    Under OS X, I'm not sure that it would do you any good....

    My recollection of SCSI support under OS X is that it effectively only supports external drives (HD's and CD burners, etc).

    OTOH, if anyone knows how I can get a SCSI-based Nikon coolscan LS-1000 working again, I'd be forever grateful. Got the hardware...SCSI card, cable & terminator...just can't get it talking.

    Scsi

    There are pci express scsi cards out there, but not sure if the will support old hardware. The problem is there are no drivers for os x 10.5 for these devices. The cable is not a problem, they are readily available (try monoprice). Email me with the pin config, I still have a bunch of old scsi cables around here.

    Peace,
    Noushy

    what ends are on your cable? There's a bazillion different scsi configurations. I probably have a cable tho :D
