Sounds like they could have bought a USB scanner for alot less than the 
high end VHDCI scsi card, and cables :-)

Yea, I've been collecting bits and pieces I've been finding around in case 
I need to go that route.

I actually found on eBay, a 68 to 25 adaptor... With a gender bender, it 
might work. The one issue is the gender bender dbhd68 might not fit the 
thing on the converter board.

The worst part is there is a single ended card for the tape drive, but the 
only one I could find offered for sale was $420.
