      We recently received a number of new Windows 7 computers at our center,
      and one is being used to replace the original (and now very slow and
      prone to crash) XP computer that came with the Canon digital microfilm
      scanner. That scanner uses a RATOC SCSI to USB converter cable, and
      although that converter is no longer sold I have found where to download
      a Windows 7 driver.

      Problem - the download requires one to enter the product key/code and we
      do not have the original packaging or any record of that number. If
      anyone else either has the driver file that you can email me directly,
      knows a valid product code, or can direct me to the appropriate person
      in SL to contact I would appreciate it. My experience with these kinds
      of unique problems is that it is difficult to get through the support
      system by phone to reach someone who has the authorization and knowledge
      to find something like an old product code.

        I just got it to work on our 64 bit machine!!!!!

        The scanner was listed under Other Devices but I was able to update the driver by unzipping the three updated files I found online and pointing to the new INF folder created. Then it showed up under Imaging Devices.

        If anyone needs the files I used, email me directly and I will forward them on. gtempleman1@...

        If so, you can try to manually update the driver and point directly to the folder with the 64-bit driver in it (again, the MS300 and MS300II use the same MS300II driver).

        I just tested with our scanners upstairs and I was able to get the three main microfilm/fiche scanners to work with the RATOC cable (Canon MS300, Canon MS300II, Minolta MS6000 MKII). I'm trying to hunt down a SCSI cable to test with that as well, I'll keep you all posted if I find one and am able to test.

        After I installed the RATOC driver I had to reboot the computer and then install the drivers. After this I had to reboot the computer again and it was able to pick the scanner (listed as "Imaging Devices").

        I then launched XnView (the FHC version available through Tivoli) and selected the TWAIN source as MS300 (it had two for: MS300 and MS350) and then click on the "Acquire from Scanner" and it launched the scanning menu and I was able to scan.
