conecting Umax 1220S to adaptec 2940UW
I am using SuSe 10.1 and have a Umax 1220S scanner, that seems to work every other release. I purchased an older Adaptec 2940UW card which I am told will work better than the cheap scsi card included with the UMAX Asto 1220S
I am having problems finding the correct cable, according to the Umax and Adaptec sites I need to use a special adapter ACK-68P-50P-E but that still doesn't get me to the Umax DB25 (Mac?). None of the local dealers have what I am looking for so I guess I need to order online, does anyone here know exactly what I need to get this working? I have seen many posts on line where guys are using the Adaptec controllers so I know it can be done.
thanks in advance
On edit: I read the Umax scanners will not work with this scsi controller becasue it will not slow down to 5MB/sec transfer rate - I checked the settings and the lowest is 10MB/sec -anyone get this to work?
