I was hesitant when HP told me they didn't have software to support my 6100C scanner on Mac OS 10.4; I bought the product anyway figuring I could it use it for my old Zip drive if the scanner didn't work. To my surprise it worked flawlessly and with no modification. The key was using Ed Hamrick's Vuescan program at http://www.hamrick.com/ a scanning program that runs almost any scanner old and new (over 700), along with many cameras (over 200). Kudos to Ratoc and Ed Hamrick for putting this together.

power?

on 5/28/2007

I bought this product because I needed to access some old external scsi harddrives. Guess what, it didn't work. The light never came on. I looked in the manual and it said if the light doesn't come on then it's not getting power from the computer and you need to hook up a power cable to the device. Only thing is it didn't come with a power cable. So now I have to track down the cable and it may or may not work. So it could work fine but I won't know until/if I can find the power cable.
