I purchased a stratford labs digital image copier model GFP-001 to convert slides to digital pics. Have it installed on my computer (windows xp) but can not get it to scan a clear image. No website available to access help came with the device and can't find it online... any suggestions? Thank you.

    I bought the same one and the images are clear, but anything that is white is very over exposed. Can't seem to figure out how to fix it.

    I have the same problem with this same film and slide scanner. Everything white is extremely overexposed.

  • DeRev Nov 13, 2008

    Same problem. Normally exposed slides come out extremely overexposed. Post digital editing will not recover the lost information.

    Any help????

    Exactly the same problem as the others ....35 mm negatives come out very well, but the slides are unusable (overexposed).

  • Anonymous Dec 01, 2008

    all 35mm slide whites greatly over-exposed and unviewable. I do not know how to fix this. I think the design specs are screwed!!.

    We have the same problem. All the whites are over exposed.

    same problem, the indoor pictures are overexposed and the outdoor ones are underexposed. There is no obvious way to adjust the exposure before the image is scanned.

    I have the same problem as others: horribly overexposed slides with no way to fix this. There is a mention of overexposure in the troubleshooting section of the quick guide, but the system does not correct this. Also I have a problem with calibration--it does not turn on, even though I have pressed the button several times. It seems to turn on and then off. There is no website for help or support with this copier.

    I found that scans of negatives were not the correct color and there's no way to adjust it. I used Photoshop to enhance the color, but it still isn't vivid the way prints made from the negatives were. I redid the Calibration but that didn't help.

    I found the color to be better on scanned slides, but I found they were underexposed compared with prints made from the slides or with looking at the slide itself. I am wondering if there is a difference in moving from computer to computer?

Need Windows 7 Drivers for Stratford Labs GFP-001

You first have to delete the current drivers. Just right click on my computer, go to properties and driver details and delete.
Go to this link to get the x64 drivers:

kind of a strange link but you will find the drivers there.

Run the driver pack you just downloaded, then plug in your device.

Everything should work once you reboot

Where can I get the software for the Stratford Labs GFP-001 digital image copier for Windows 7?

The manufacturer's website advises that the GFP-001 Image Scanner is, Compatible with Vista and Windows XP systems Only. Requires USB version 2.0 Only.

Sorry, but I do not believe you will be able to find support for Windows 7, unless your scanner functions with one of the generic drivers inlcuded in Windows 7.

Can't calibrate new Stratford Labs GFP-001

Can't calibrate the new Stratford "Digital Image Copier" GFP-001.
Followed all instalation instructions till I got to the part where it said that the unit had to be calibrated for the first time used. It said to "Click" on the "calibrate" button to perform the calibration,
but there was no calibration button shown, or no on screen desplay pop-up. Would like to know what I can do to rectify this problem. I am using an Acer Laptop with "Vista Home Premium";
which has 2.0 USB Ports which is called for. Does this device need to be calibrated, or can it be used without the required calibration?
Thank you,
Gerry Hall

Lost installation CD

Well, I cannot help you with a disk, but I can offer this insight:

Seems this scanner only works with USB2 ports, and if you only have USB1 ports, you will not have any luck.

Additionally, while I cannot help you with drivers, I have found others who say that Windows XP (and it is assumed Vista) does not need drivers to operate this scanner.

Simply go to the Control Panel, (after it's plugged in to a USB2) and click on Scanners and Cameras. The operating system will guide you through a wizard which will allow you to scan images into your computer.

Once there, however, you are sort of on your own to choose the software you want to edit those images.

good luck

Just found the company that actually makes "Stratford Labs" scanners. Called them very helpful, still sending this one back. They actually answer the phone when you call, that's a plus.
