[teknoids] MS-300 Microform Scanner

My target of "attack" would be the SCSI interface.  It may not be the scanner (and/or its driver) itself that's not cooperating.  My brief googlings indicate that people are successfully using the scanner on Win7.  For example: https://tech.lds.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=144&t=19814

I would also try using both a 32 and 64 bit version of Windows to see if there is a difference.

We have an MS-300 and we've been keeping one last Windows XP machine to keep it going. If anyone knows how to make it work with Windows 7 let me know too.

I've asked the vendor we bought it from and they say it won't work with Windows 7 but I know they want to sell us a new machine.
