I have a Umax Astra 1220S Scanner.
The scanner came with an incompatible to Linux SCSI card.
Oliver Rauch says the below.
I like the ncr/symbios_logic 53c8xx cards, especally the 53c810 cards (fast
are good for external scsi devices!
Before I order the card suggested above I have a few questions.
I know next to nothing about SCSI cards although I am reading about them.
I originally brought an AHA-2940/U2w ULTRA2-LVD/SE as it was listed as Linux
compatible in the How to Hardware.
When I got it home I found the connector on the SCSI card was not compatible
with the 25 pin connector on the scanner.
I then thought about how stupid I was for rushing out and buying this card
and that I would have to keep it for some other purpose.
Then I read in the UMAX Scanners & Adaptec Compatible Cards list that the
Adaptec AHA-2940/U2W HD68 is compatible but requires a converter with high
byte termination from HD68 - HD25.
Can some fill me in. What is high byte termination.
If I buy this converter will I be able to get the card working on Linux
(with out having to do to much programming)?
Or should I go out and buy the suggested ncr/symbios_logic 53c8xx card and
does it need a converter. I can not see it listed in the list of supported
SCSI cards in the linux Hardware Howto
