Question about Alps MD 5000 Thermal Printer
Also need to find an adapter to connect the 50-pin SCSI port on my Alps MD5000 to my Mac which only has USB and Ethernet ports.
There are no OS X drivers for the 5000.
If your version of OS X is old enough, you can run the )S 9 driver under classic.

Here's an alternative: Adaptec makes a scsi card that you can put in your mac...If it's a tower. It's got a 50-pin high density exterior connector... you should be able to connect your unit to this...
it's the Adaptec 29160N...there are a few different varieties...look for the high density 50-pin...my research is showing you may have to spend a little to get one.

Tips for a great answer:
Sorry, there are no Windows 7 Drivers. There are a couple of work arounds. I use an older laptop with Windows XP. The XP drivers are easy to find on line. There is another way, but I have not tried it. It's using XP compatibility mode in Win 7.
