Question about Canon CanoScan LiDE 600F Flatbed Scanner

How can I scan slides in plastic mounts?

Re CanoSlide 600F:
I can scan film and negative strips very well, but most of my slides are mounted (hundreds of them).
I can find no instructions for scanning mounted slides.
Thank you, Steffi

    I need to hear from someone who has actually scanned mounted slides.
    After the film adaptor is snapped into place where does one place the mounted slide(s)?
    Are the three pairs of rubber (?) holders on the underside meant to serve this purpose?

Mounted slides you just place on scanner surface by face side or back side, depening how you did put the film in it.
If you have rubber holder you do insert your slides inside them and scan. They are desigh=nned for that. You can also put a piece of paper on top in order to improve quality. But slides suppose to be placed either all fron side or all back side. You need to try it ones to figure out. It is really easy to do. If you dont want to use holder you can just arrrange slides the way you want on a surface of scanner.
Just for the case I am sending you this link, maybe you will get some better ideas.
Good Luck and Merry Christmas

    you need to buy a mask for mounted dia, or crop a mask using carboard, and scissors.
    nted slides
    Place the mask on the scanner, and the mounted slides on the space you left on the mask.
    Then select the scanning space on the computer in correspondence with the slide, and start scanning the slides.

Scanner doesn't recognise their is a slide loaded in the slide holder


The first thing I'd try is to run the scanner with the Nikon software. When you power on the scanner it goes through a variety of checks, and finally you should have a silent scanner with a solid green light at the front. Start the Nikon software and wait until it finds the scanner, if it doesn't you have a hardware problem with the scanner.

If it goes well to this point insert a card or plastic mounted slide and hit Preview. The scanner should then create and image you see on screen. Next step would be to make a scan. If the slide you're trying to scan isn't card or plastic mounted you'll need the Nikon made carrier.

Hope this helps.

Can I scan slides with Canoscan LiDE600F


Yep, The Canoscan LiDE600F is capable of scanning slides, however it is not possible to scan them in their mounts. If you dismount the slide, you can scan them using the film strip holder. This is not an elegant solution and you would have to remount your slides to use them as originally intended.

Scanning 110 negative film


I just finished scanning many 110 film strips. You need to lay the strip along the inside edge of slot A and scan in normal preview mode. On the preview strip, put a marquee around each individual photo and scan each one separately. Worked fine for me.

No option to scan Film Negatives


In order to see these options, you must have the Film Adapter Unit (FAU) attached to the scanner. The FAU is designed to scan in 35mm film, either positive or negative. The scanner has no options to scan in mounted 35mm slides.

Does the scanner work for scanning at all? If not, you may have a communication problem between the computer and the scanner, i.e., the computer doesn't know how the scanner is configured so it doesn't show the options. If it's a communication problem, check for any other USB devices that might interfere with communication. Especially, some printers seem to take over communications. Try disconnecting all other USB devices (except keyboard, mouse, etc.), reboot, and see if the situation corrects itself.

Also, try the online troubleshooting database for this model at this link.

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?

The Canon CanoScan 8800F is an excellent scanner and will do what you want. The scanner driver includes a descreen feature which is to reduce the Moiré patterns that are common when scanning items such as magazines or other printed materials. This scanner is capable of scanning 35mm film negatives and positives including mounted slides. It is also capable of scanning 22cm x 6 Film Strip (120 roll film). There is zero warm-up time on the lamp. This means that the scanner is ready when you are. Other scanners may require 30 seconds to a minute or so to warm up.

Here is a link to the product page for this scanner.

Narrow straight line runs across all scanned images


by shutterup

I solved my problem.
It's pretty personal, but I hope it can help others.
First: I might have created the problem myself because I slightly adapted the slide-mount.
Why?: Some time ago I had some unwilling films the automatic! film-mount wouldn't swallow, so I had to use the manually operated slide mount.
I adapted a slide housing a bit, so it could take and transport film.
To be short: In the end, there was transparent, (but also reflective) material inside the Coolscan V housing, close to the slide.
I removed it.

Second, I turned the scanner 45 degrees, and gave it a calculated whack on the side. (like you did with your tele in the 6ties, but a bit more carefull )

Don't know which one did the trick, or both. I can send a sample.

Well not a complete solution but. . . It will help. 1st Digital Ice will screw up when trying to use it's infrared on Kodakrome so either don't use it or better yet don't use Nikons scanner utils. I use both Silverfast and Vuescan and will never look back yes they both solved this but the real issue is inside but do download a trial of vuescan before you go any further.
Your problem might be a cleaning of the mirror since mounted slides might "curve" in the frame differently and accentuate this issue. Look at this site I clean mine once every 6000 scans which works out to about once or twice a month.

I also recommend (a must do) is run your scanner on its side if you own a sf-210 feeder you already are so look at how this unit attaches on nikon's site or in your manual and do it. This way the guts are on their side (mirror not lying almost flat for all the dust to fall onto it).
