Hi! I have a Polaroid SprintScan 120 tf scanner. It makes beautiful scans with excellent resolution, 35mm and 120 all varieties. I also have an Epson V750 that makes poor 35mm scans and okay but not great 120 scans, and a Nikon LS-50 which only does 35mm. The Polaroid seems to be dying. It worked perfectly on an FW 1394 connection. Then it had to have the cable unplugged and replugged before each session. Now it needs to be unplugged and replugged every time a holder is ejected. This is true with three different FW cards on three computers. Essentially, it is unusable at this point. I seem to have 2.5 choices. Replace the Polaroid, which is not really in the budget. Bring the Nikon out of mothballs for 35mm and use the Epson for 120--not optimal. The 2.5th choice is the one I need help with. The Polaroid has a SCSI-2 (HD50) connection in addition to FW. I can get a PCI SCSI card and cable for about $35. IF it is only the Firewire chip on the scanner board that is failing, then this could work? I'm not sure. I think it's above my geek pay grade. Anyone with a fact-based opinion?
