SCSI replace or work around

By jimmywren ·
I still use a HP ScanJet 3c scanner with a SCSI connect to the computer. I have changed motherboards several times over the years and I always made sure to get a MB with at lest 1 one SCSI expansion slot. This time I forgot and bought a MB with PCI slots only. Is there a PCI card the can replace the SCSI card? If not does anyone have any suggestions on how to work around?

Thanks,

Jimmy

Yes, you can get PCI SCSI cards from a number of vendors.

Adaptec would be my first choice.

Just make sure that the card supports the correct SCSI version for your scanner. (SCSI 2?)

From the HP specification page:

it looks like you need to make sure a SCSI card that supports ASPI integration.
