I've got a Power Mac 7500, which has a SCSI port. Many of the new peripherals for Macs are coming out in USB-only versions, and there are some I might like to use without having to buy a new computer.

There are several products around that allow someone to connect a piece of SCSI equipment to a USB port, but I've been unable to find any that work the other way. Does such a thing exist? If not, is there any reason why? I would think that someone would want to tap into the market of installed SCSI-machine users.

For $45 you can purchase a card that will give you two USB ports on your Mac. Here's the manufacturer's URL:

This is the simplest and most straightforward way to add USB, I would think.
