You would be better off buying one from your local cable guy or eBay once you decide which connecters you have.More for reliability purposes than cheapness.
I have used idc cable for an external application once,did not look pretty but it did the job for a while,buying a centronics 50 pin idc and a scsi 68 idc female.
Does your scanner have selectable termination,if not you will have to provide it,that is if it is last in line.

Hope this helps
