    Default Scsi

    Hi

    Just wondering why everyone seems to be getting Adaptec cards ? Can we use the other brands which cost only around 30-40 ?

    Be careful when using UW, U160, U320 SCSI adaptors with the Coolscan III. If your 68->50 pin cable is not terminated properly, it will NOT work. I spent a whole day troubleshooting this and ended up buying a simple Adaptec 2906 instead.

    You can try the Adaptec 2906 at around $92.

    If you go for the not-so-branded ones like TekRam, it should be around there. Not so sure about driver support, etc tho.

    I have unused Adaptec 2904. It come with my flatbed scanner but never used because I connect the flatbed daisy-chained to my film scanner which already connected to an Adaptec SCSI.
