Do not need anything. Just take scanner, server computer and can to scan. On SP3000 can be used three software packages. If you want to have modern software ( server on W7 32 bit, or W10 64 bit ) you need other software and reinstall all.

Pay attention that to scan 120 films on  SP3000 you need manual carrier, other diffusion box and masks for each format ( 6x6, 6x9, 6x4.5 and other ) . Diffusion box and masks are very expensive. For example this one ( 6x4.5 ) sells at 800 GBP :
Using manual carrier need scan manually - frame by frame. It is not so comfortable as on Noritsu, where used automatic film carrier.

Fuji SP3000 is very big ( scanner with table ) and heavy. It takes big space and not so easy to change location. You need two computers - scan films on internal scanner computer and process orders on external computer ( server ) . If used the oldest system ( FDIA ) then can't scan pictures in .tif ( can scan .jpg, bmp ) .

Fuji SP3000 is the best Fuji scanner. All Fuji scanners are very complicated. It is difficult to repair them. Scanner has internal image box, where motherboard, two RAM modules ( not standard ) and three, or four interfaces. Each of them are expensive. For example here CTL23 sells at 2000 GBP :
CTL23 is board, which on SP3000 fails the most.
Scanner has special power supply and it is very big and expensive also :
Scanner itself has zoom, CCD unit, micro-movement board and scanner control board. Connection between computer and image box - using firewire. Internal connections - using RS422 and similar. Only high qualification technicians know how they work.

Inside scanner used old Toshiba computer with two firewire ports. Motherboard any time can fail. If to buy original computer they are expensive also. It is possible upgrade computer ( not so easy ) , but even then on computer should be only Windows 2000. On server can be Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 7 32 bit, or Windows 10 64 bit. All depends on used software ( on server and scanner ) .
