I thought the author was Adaptec, sort of. Wasn't that the reason
to phase out the old driver?

It's not really an adapter, it's rather a lamp built into the
cover, using its own power supply :( and connecting to the
scanner through a short cable. There is also a set of
masks/templates to put the slides in. I'm sure there is also
additional firmware functionality involved, to control the lamp,
move the scan head to a slit in the mask for colour calibration,
etc. But maybe all Prisa scanners have that firmware, and some
are just lacking the lamp.
Anyway, it works well with sane. If your are offered a
lamp-fitted cover for 25 bucks and your scanner has a socket to
plug the cable in, then I'd say go for it.
