Re: cant scan 4cm x 4xm slides
The mounted slide scanning option is set for scanning 35mm mounted slides (24mm x 36mm). As far as I know there is no way to change this setting. You may want to try using the film scan option, do a preview scan, and then crop each individual slide for the final scan.

The MP600 cannot scan film or slides. Film/slide scanners need a light source to shine through the film to the scanner sensor. You can use a flat bed scanner with a light source such as the CanoScan 5600F, or a multifunction unit equipped with a backlight source such as the Canon PIXMA MP810, MP970 or MP980.
One workaround is this: use the holder for the negatives as a guide but not as a holder as such.
To do this, place the film negative directly on the glass plate, then put the negative holder (completely assembled) on top of it; align the film and the holder so that the frames on the filmstrip line up with the marks on the holder correctly.
Now, close the lid and follow the normal procedure for scanning negatives. They're noticeably sharper this way, suggesting that the scanner's focus is set for items placed directly on the glass plate. I have no idea why focus isn't adjusted correctly for negatives, which site a millimetre or two above the glass.
Delete the printer from your system. Reboot. Reattach your printer and let it plug and play install. Make sure the printer is defined as your default printer. Make sure the application you are using it set up to use the MP970.
