I am going through the pro's and con's of possibly picking up a used Howtek 4500 scanner.
My principle concern is running the hardware from my Mac. I am running OSX ver. 10.5.6. via a unibody MacBook Pro.
One obstacle that I'm trying to tackle is the SCSI connection. What style of SCSI connector runs from the Howtek (male or female connector, Ultra SCSI, pin count, etc.)? It's funny, I have never heard the term "dongle" until I started to research drum scanners. Are there any considerations with a SCSI adaptor as it relates to this dongle piece of hardware? Is anybody using or can they recommend an adaptor and driver that will work with Leopard?
Lastly, if this hardware/connection issue can be tackled has anybody used the Aztek standard DPL software succesfully through Fusion ran from a BootCamp partition?
Thanks in Advance for any and all advice/suggestions.
