Scanning slides with the Epson Perfection 1250

My slide scanner works fine with regular 35 mm slides but I have a number of slides that were made 50 years ago with a Kodak camera that produced slides that are mounted in the 2"x2" size frames that work fine in all slide projectors. The problem is that the transparency area is 1.875"x1.875" and my scanner insists on scanning the standard 35mm area. There is a way to fix this because I obtained the fix from Epson a couple of years ago and did scan about 50 of these slides successfully. I now have a new computer and have installed the scanner using windows 2000 XP. I have lost the fix that I received from Epson and would like to know if anyone can help me. My email addres is Thanks for any assistance you can give.

Re: Scanning slides with the Epson Perfection 1250

To be honest, I have no idea of how you were able to scan larger transparencies in the past. The scanner and its software were never designed to do this and there is no workaround.

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.
