Opal Ultra by Firewire

Postby mjf777 » Thu Jul 03, 2008 11:53 pm

The Opal Ultra Scanner is compatible with the Ratoc SCSI Converter FRISX. This is a very old scanner but I didn't want to throw it away. I bought Ratoc's FRISX SCSI to Firewire Converter, the AC-DC term power adapter, the Centronics 50 adapter, and an active SCSI terminator. I followed the installation guide and it works! It works both with Hamric Vue Scan as Ratoc suggested AND with my SilverFast 6.4.4r7a. I am very happy. I use a G5 iMac PowerPC and Mac OSX 10.4.11.
