some posts on the subject on this uk site dedicated to emu hardware samplers...
even here you have a difference of opinion on the topic!!
ranging from:

"The general concensus is that the USB to SCSI converters simply do not work with samplers. "
---to---
"connect the cable to your mac, open bias peak, go to the menu "sampler" and choose "emu". that's it. no drivers, no hustle.  just load your sample and have fun"

here im finding people suggesting + leaning hard towards using
a dual card reader approach...

is this why programs like recycle v2.0 were stopped dead in their tracks?
im trying to understand why its so hard to transmit data between a computer + a sampler
and why ive read so many people have technical problems doing so
and whats the best sampler / data xfer method / computer combo
so i dont get stuck with an incompatible combination!!!!
