Sure is I tried to do this once before. Got myself a Polaroid Sprintscan, complete with SCSI card and cable, and a copy of Silverfast, but the noise from the scanner when it was running was horrific, and the results didn't justify the suffering. It was literally one of the worst sounds I've ever experienced. I considered building a sound-deadening box for it, but ended up just putting it on the shelf, instead. It sat there for years. I finally recycled it a few weeks ago. I hated to do it, because it was in "like new" condition, but people can't give them away on eBay, so I didn't bother trying. I'm assuming the noise was from the stepper motor. My new-ish Epson V370 Photo scanner makes the same kind of noise, but at 1/4 the volume and a less bone-piercing pitch. I don't know why the Polaroid was so loud. It was an expensive machine in its day.
