Im trying for some time already to make an Eversmart (Jazz+) work under Mac OS X (have 10.3 now) over SCSI interface with no success. I have two adaptec boards 2903B (2906)- came with the scanner and 2930CU - came with PowerMac G4.
Both boards work well with the scanner under mac OS 9.2.2. None works with Mac OS X.
The 2903B is not recognizable at all. While the 2930CU is recognized by the OS X. Twicking the Extensions set i can make my jazz appear as attached to the SCSI board under all 7 SCSI IDs at once, so there are 7 jazzes at once . Or as a single instance, but the SCSI id would be wrong anyway. Needless to say that the install utils would crash each time i start them.
The Creo Release Notes say that the scanner is supported under Mac OS 10.2 with SCSI connection and supported under 10.3 with SCSI to FireWire adapter.
I do not have a SCSI to Firewire adapter and would prefer to use what i have at the moment - pure SCSI.
My plan is to downgarde to a Mac OS 10.2 but i would hate to spend my money and time on something that might not work.
Are there any Eversmart owners (i do not think this is just Jazz specific) who successfully run the scanners under mac os x with SCSI and not a FireWire connection? What Mac OS X, SCSI board and EvermartScan versions allow to achieve that?
Or do I have to get a SCSI to Firewire adapter? If yes, which one and what OS and EversmartScan i have to use with it?
Im sure i wont be able to get anything from Kodak, so that does not count
