You really cannot scan a neg without a special holder. I recommend paying $90 to Costco and buying their special USB Scanner which scans one neg at atime! They are great!

Thanks,

Mark

Scanning 35mm negs on my Epson Stylus PHOTO RX620


Try using a slightly off-white background sheet behind the negative (glass-negative-sheet-scanner lid) first, or a "frame" around the negative that is anything but white... some scanners have an auto-detect feature that may be skewed for one reason or another.

Another trick, from a photographer friend, is to take saran wrap or another transparent but non-reflective material and place as a filter between the negative and glass, thus reducing glare. The sharpness may be lessened, but the glare is also lessened...

Hope this helps!

Epson V300 Photo Scanner Streak When Scanning Negative


I also own a v300, and I have noticed that I occasionally get rainbow streaks if I bump the scanner at all while it is scanning negatives, so this might have something to do with vibrations in the machine. Is it sitting on a stable surface?

Unable to scan b/w neg's correctly using Digital ICE


Unfortunately, you cannot use Digital ICE on B&W films due to silver particles contained within the film. The Digital ICE future only works with C-41 (negatives) and E-6 (slides) processed films, but not B&W films.

Scanned negatives are not sharp.


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.

Not to sound rude, but are you inserting it with the arrows pointing into the scanner?  That is the first step. Afterwards makesure you have the scanner on and the green light is not blinking.

Epson 3490 Scanner not communicating properly with PC


The new PC was Vista and the CD that came with the scanner completed loading a driver without complaint. However, a new driver was needed for Vista. After downloading the new driver from Epson, uninstalling the old driver and installing the new driver, it worked.
