Does anyone know what kind of scsi connector is on the back of a scanjet 6300c?  I am assuming it is a 50HD female connector, but I just wanted to make sure.  I have an Adaptec 1505 SCSI card with a DB25 connector, so I need to know what kind of cable to get to hook the scanner up to my PC.  I think the one I need is the DB25 male - 50HD male cable (model number ACK-D2H-2M from Adaptec).

Well, in perusing thru the HP site, it would seem that they really don't give a hoot about anything other than selling the scanner.

I went to the Advansys site, and they say that the HP 6xxx uses a 50 pin High Density connector.

if you drill down, there is a picture of the connector.

Hi, it is indeed a 50 pin High-Density connector. Adaptec call the cable needed a "Standard 50-pin Ultra-SCSI Cable". Yes, it is a female connector, just as on the Adaptec cards (I have the 2940U2W and am using the extra 50-pin connector for my 6300C scanner). The oldgreyguy is right, HP don't give much information concerning the SCSI possibilities on their website. It's a shame.
