And i am also surprised at the cost of the SCSI cards. You are quite right, most of them have a heavy orange tint, so i suppose i will be searching for an appropriate program to adjust the colouring accordingly, i have tried adjusting this myself using ‘Paint Shop Pro 4’ but my results are far from good!!

Now I have another computer using Win There were some pages online where people made their own slide adapters, but they had to remove the lamp in the main scanner. Please assign your manual to a product: Speed-wise i think the parallel port is still the fastest standard fitting Serial port is a slower interface, if you fit an SCSI card you can get very fast vlstascan rates, i am quite happy vistaecan ethernet cards myself, they are quite fast enough for me.
