Tom, I have several devices on a scuzzi to USB adapter and they do work,
tho my old (it isn't really old, just old for nowadays) UMAX Powerlook
2100 XL is on the only (or one of only) SCSI ports in the G4. However, if
your UMax is older than mine, which it might be -- check that you can get
the new driver for system X before buying the adapter. I think, for
instance, there is none for the XL.
