    Marek,

     

    Some SCSI-to-USB adapters can be found via an Internet search. However, difficulties with compatibility and speed cannot be ruled out. If you wish to read data from existing tapes, a better idea may be to buy a suitable older Macintosh computer with a SCSI port, compatible with any software used for the tape drive. If the older computer has built-in Ethernet it would be easier to transfer files to a modern machine.
