It looks good but the only problem is it specifically says "This model is not recommended for SCSI scanners which are trickier to connect."
This may be the problem I run into. I called Microtek and they were no help whatsoever. They told me they don't have or support any type of SCSI to USB cord. It is an older scanner so I get why. But it is also a really good quality scanner and I would hate to have to throw it out.
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks deggie for your help.

Apple dropped the SCSI port for USB and FireWire in 1999.
did find this one on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Cables-To-Go-22429-Adapter/dp/B000067RWK/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_ 1 It's a 25 pin SCSI to USB, Windows only.
Here's a 25 pin female to 50 pin male SCSI adapter. http://www.amazon.com/QVS-HPCen50-MicroCen50-Female-Adapter/dp/B0044B6XJS/ref=sr _1_6?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1335833278&sr=1-6

Thanks frederic1943. I actually already bought that exact cord from Amazon. But it must be made in China or something because it's too small and although it looks male it doesn't have the right screws on the ends either. It doesn't fit. I feel I may be consigned to buy a new scanner. Oh well such is life. I guess I'm in the market for a high quality scanner. Maybe something multi function that acts as a printer and a fax as well.
