    Use Old Scanner & Printer on New imac?
    Hi,
    I have a brand new imac.

    Is there any way I can use these I used on my old powermac:

    PowerMacIntosh 7300/180. --- OS 8.6

    old Scanner - Umax - Astra 600S

    old Printer - LaserJet 6mp

    Is there an adapter? Is it possible?
    Is it fairly easy?

    Thanks.

    We can't tell you anything until you tell us what PowerMac you are using. I looked through your previous posts and found nothing.

    Software wise, I believe your PowerMac is running Mac OS 8. This will work with them, but we can't help you with cable adaptors etc. without knowing the above.
