How to Convert SCSI to USB?
SCSI stands for Small Computers Systems Interface and is considered in many ways the father of
modern day USB (Universal Serial Bus) technology. About a decade ago, SCSI ports were the

USB port has significantly enhanced the plug and
play capabilities of devices as there is no need to
restart the computer after you plug in and plug out
the device. This was one of the main attraction point

there was no need to connect the device to an external power supply. This feature has been fully
exploited by various companies and now IPods, phones and various other devices can be charged
through a USB cable. Another benefit of using USB connector over SCSI port is that you do not
need to install drivers for many devices when they are connected through USB thus making them a
lot easier to work with.
