I have an Epson GT-7000 SCSi scanner and it has a cable to goes from the back (SCSI) and turns into a parallel cable. Does that mean that I can plug the scanner into the printer parallel port? Or is there a SCSI card that uses that type of connection? When ever I plug the cable into the back of the computer, the scanner ready light turns off until I disconnect it. Thanks in advance.
It's not parrallel, it's 25-pin SCSI, often used on scanners. Try to find a SCSI card and apropriate cable, or a 25-pin SCSI card (junk for anything but scanners), or get a REAL SCSI to Parrallel adapter (cost more than your scanner).
