Scanning Ektachrome slides

I have a bunch of slides that the cardboard measures 2.75" square and the film is a little over 50 mm. I can not find a company that can convert these to a CD. I should say that I did find one company but the charge was $ 2.75 each. If I buy a scanner to do these, what do I buy and will it scan 35mm reels also? Scott

Nikon Coolscan IV ED Jam Solution

Do you find your older slides, cardboard slides, or irregular slides jam in the Nikon SF-210 Slide Feeder for your Nikon CoolScan IV ED?

Try this solution:

Take a AAA battery and place it in rear, left side of the slide feeding tray as pictured below:

The slides will fan out nicely, and your Nikon CoolScan IV ED will no longer try to load more than one at a time. Instead it will load them one at a time, 50 per tray, and you can actually walk away from it and let it do its job, just the way you intended to when you bought the SF-210 slide feeder attachment!

I hope that helps.

I have a Canon 8400F film printer/scanner


'Tain't necessary. And not getting the part can be an improvement.
I cut out a cardboard template that allows me to scan 10 slides rather than the 4 of Canon's official slide adapter.

All the Canon part does is position them precisely so cropping and rotation are automatic. With Photoshop skills (File ' Automate), you can do the same yourself for whatever size. I ended up doing Brownie, 35, and 126 (gasp!) also.

For extra credit, make your adapter(s) out of genuine plastic rather than whatever cereal box you have lying around.

After scanning one photo slide and storing it on my computer, I can't delete this first scan to scan another


It's not necessary to delete the previous scanned photo. To scan another slide, place it in the scanner and press the PREVIEW button.

Nikon scan was unsable to find any active device


I may have a solution for the unrecognized film holder/clunking problem.  The fix is not for the faint of heart, but you can do it yourself and save a bunch of money.  The problem lies in the two rails inside the scanner that the film carrier rides on.  After unplugging you scanner, remove the 8 screws from the rear of the unit and slide the cover rearward about 3/4" and then lift it straight off.  Inside you will see two shiny machined rods running from front to back.  The problem is those two rods have dried up lubricant on them and the film carrier drags a bit during film carrier insertion and/or scans.  The easiest way I found to clean the rods is to remove the front cover (look for screws inside on each side), and then carefully slide those rods out (but NOT all the way) and wipe off what is exposed and then apply a little silicone lubricant to the rods (be very careful to not get any down into the lens area).  Then slide the rods back in and repeat for the portion that is exposed in the rear.  Carefully re-assemble everything and you should be all set.  This fix worked for me on an 8000ED that I purchased used on eBay.  Hope this helps someone.  Brian

Scanned 35mm slide comes out as rectangle with dark edges


I've not ever seen "square" 35mm slides. By definition they are a rectangular positive film in an outer square "mount".

If you have a truly square piece of film then it is not a 35mm slide. You may have to use settings other than those for a 35mm film but these would be I don't know.

When were they taken (approximately)? What brand of film? Are they in a cardboard "mount?

"muddy eyes"


I don't think the problem is the eyes. the problem comes because the focus of the scanner is not the same with film zone and films support, there is a one mm difference. You have to specify the good way in the driver.
