GPIB-SCSI-A on WindowsNT machine

Highlighted
I've got a GPIB scanner, a GPIB-SCSI-A box and a WindowsNT (NT4 SP4)
machine with a SCSI card in it.

I basically want to get the scanner running via the NT machine.
Everything is connected up and running, but I'm shy of a driver for the
SCSI-A box.

Will the NI 488.2 driver work? And why don't NI appear to do a SCSI
driver for the Windows environment.

Cheers,

Dave

Dave,

NI does not support the SCSI-A under the windows environment, thus the
lack of SCSI drivers for NT. However, the NI-488.2 drivers will work under
Solaris and Mac environments for this hardware.

Check out http://www.ni.com/support/trouble/gpib/versions.htm for full
GPIB driver listings.

Regards,
Rich Yavorsky
