Hi.
I want to connect my ScanJet 5P - which has a SCSI interface - to my DELL laptop via USB.  I am using the latest version of Ubuntu.

I know there are a number of SCSI to USB converters out there.

My question is:
Does anyone have a solution for this problem that they are 100% certain will work?
Thanks

The Scanjet 5P SCSI is currently full supported by SANE in ubunjtu:

Thanks, I read over the article you recommended.

There is no mention of how to physically convert from SCSI to USB.

Do you know of any SCSI/USB converter that is guaranteed to work?

That's hardware, I don't know. But I suppose that a converter is not much complicated and each one should work.  The very important thing is that SANE supports your scanner.
