Make my Arcus 2 go!

Postby diditnow » Wed Aug 04, 2004 6:26 pm

I have an Arcus 2 that I'm trying to hook up to a G5 running OS 10.3. I got a device from Belkin, a SCSI to Firewire adapter. I installed Fotolook and tried to make it go but it didn't. So I downloaded the Demo of Silverfast AI and amazingly it worked!!! Here is my problem: At $299 for Silverfast plus $85 for the adapter I'm spending too much to keep this thing alive- it does not make sense. So is Silverfast SE good enough? Does it allow you to scan Hi-rez? Is it appropriate for a professional graphic artist? Do you have control over the settings? What are you giving up compared to AI? Remember I'm used to Fotolook.

Also if I have an old copy of Silverfast A! 5 for Microtek X12USL Scanner can I upgrade from that for a lower price.

Just trying to keep the Arcus going without spending a lot of $$$
