Sorry I had posted this on the other forum.
I have a SCSI scanner , its on a ISA card =o( . I noticed on the scanner it has a cable connection for other devices, I was wondering if its a good idea to add extra devices on this expansion slot or get another scsi card/pci and use that instead?.
Whats the bad on the ISA slot anyway?
Also just been reading about problems with changing from the dedicated scanner card to a universal SCSI card on PCI slot. Also interesting about USB being so slow, my ol' scanner is An Acer Prisa 610S and still think it does a great job.Dont want to part with it, cost me a pretty penny.
Thanx in advance....

I have the same scanner, complete with dedicated isa scsi card, I have another scsi card in my system for my cd drives, but it just wont work with the scanner, I only have the 1 isa card - the scsi card but when I upgrade my board next (hopefully not for a while (kt7a raid)) I may find it difficult go find one with an isa slot, if you find a pci card that works with the scanner I'd be grateful if youi would let me know.
Subject: Help with Acer
I have recently upgraded my computer motherboard to one that doesn't support the ISA slot expansion card to SCSI adapter for my Acer Prisa 610s scanner.
There are a number of PCI slot expansion SCSI adapters on the market and I would like to be sure I get the right one, this scanner is to good to upgrade.
What I need to know is there a preferred PCI expansion slot card for SCSI adaption best suiting the scanner?
Your recommendation will be much appreciated,
