Does anyone know how to convert a 25-pin(?) D-shape external SCSI
plug to the more common flat-line socket? I'm not sure of the
technical description : it's the external plug featured on the
Adaptec 2940UW board.
I have a Mustek flatbed scanner which comes with a cheap SCSI
card (DTC380 or something similar). I'm currently trying to get
Linux to recognise it, without any success so far. My current
2.2.9 kernel has drivers for a later DTC card, but not this one,
and the module cannot find the card when started, so presume
that they're not compatible.
So, I need to find a way to get the scanner to talk to the
external bus on the 2940 instead of the DTC card, and to do that
I need to switch between the D-plug and the flat SCSI cable. Are
they compatible standards, and is there a simple adapter to
bridge from one to the other?
Alternatively, if anyone knows of a patch for any other DTC SCSI
cards, that would help too.
