THANK YOU, Dr. Kasten!
See folks .. I was NOT crazy! It DOES exist!
As for the old scanners, themselves .. ten yr.s ago I could have gotten any of you, any one - or ALL - of them when I worked at E.R.S. ("E" Recycling). I remember those names on them in a stack collecting dust - LOTS of dust.
I haven't seen one of them at my friend's Unitec Recycling, in the years I've visited there. Maybe, I've seen ONE ScanJet Plus (gray scale capable vn. of The ScanJet) but not the others.
At this point, who cares? We HAVE the software, at last!
Using the 'Scanjet' driver, set your (SCSI) based scanner to black-white, "extremely high" (say, 120 dpi ;-) ; in all cases < < 360dpi) resolution (NO interpolation, what your settings are, is what you scan at!), and save as *.img. You say THAT doesn't work? [Gulp. What do you MEAN by, "your software doesn't ALLOW saving as *.img" ??!! :-( ]
I 'browsed' the manual (pdf) and saw NO notice of memory requirements (that I could recognize). Dr. Kasten, does it request Extended Memory?
