    Boy you guys are good

    OK- so I DO have the SCSI+Raid contollers installed. I should run the driver disc next I suppose..... I just thought that's what Vuescan does. Am I wrong in assuming this?

    Yes, you need drivers for the card itself. Then you need drivers for the scanner itself and then, finally, Vuescan. Vuescan will talk to the scanner drivers and the scanner drivers will talk to the SCSI drivers (or is it the other way around.... getting confused already... see what SCSI does to an easily affected mind!)..

    Cheers, Bob.

    [edit] Hang on... RAID??? Are you running RAID and using a two-channel RAID card to plug the scanner in to as well? If so, the drivers for the card will already be installed.

    So far behind the curve

    Thanks everyone-satinsnow,Bob,Horst,David-you guys are really nice to try and help this misguided person (Me) I have an epson and yes I'm starting to understand what the pleasures of firewire are all about. It does good scans but only up to 2and 1/4 inch negatives. I only paid $5 plus shipping for the Agfa so if I can get it to work fine. Otherwise there are good places in NYC where I can go and do scans and one is using imacons. I'll just have to pay.
    That's the end of my SCSI day for now......you are all so generous and I mean that.
    Thanks, Peter Schrager

    I agree with Bob F. USB and Firewire is far less complicated and easier to use

    And please don't forget the always nice faces to see when we discover two devices on the channel have accupied the same SCSI-ID;-)

    Ho.

    One thing that hasn't been mentioned yet, Peter. The scanner must be turned on (powered up) BEFORE you turn on your computer or the computer won't recognize it.
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!

    Oops, so you did, Dave, but it deserves to be mentioned again. I've used a SCSI scanner for over 2 years now and STILL make this mistake

    No biggie, I just happen to be from the old school on computers where we had to turn everything on before turning the computer on, hence I still do it that way, things are really different now, then they were when I was starting out!
