I have an older Microtek X6 EL scanner that I want to connect to my MacBook via a USB port.  Right now all that is on the scanner is a SCSI port.  I need to find a cord with a SCSI connector (it would be the male piece 25 pin) on one end and a USB 2.0 port on the other end.  I tried Amazon and even ordered one that looked right.  But it wasn't large enough to connect.  Obviously I want one that is Mac compatible but I also run a virtual machine with Windows on my MacBook so I can live with a Windows version if I have to.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

MacBook (13-inch Aluminum Late 2008), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
