Plustek 7200iSE scanner

I'm in the process of scanning our family slides using this scanner and for the most part am getting good results. However, occasionally I encounter a slide that looks great on the prescan but, when I press scann the facial features of the person become quite scrambled. Any idea what I can do to correct this?

I have a Plustek OpticFilm 7600i SE film scanner. Every time I try and load-up the setup disc, the set up install starts and then comes up with this error message: An error (-500 : 0x8004ace8) has...

It is quite possible that there is another piece of software that is clashing with your Plustek OpticFilm scanner. It is hard to tell which software is having a clash. If you remove that software from your system you will obtain the desired results. I suspect the SP3 of Windows XP may be responsible for this because Microsoft has indicated that Windows XP SP3 is not for everyone. If you install Windows XP SP2 uninstalling XP SP3 your problem can definitely be rectified.
Good Luck!

My scanner sometimes crops a particular slide but not others. Some scan ok. What is going on?

Be sure to put the slide in the holder in the proper direction. The opening in the slide holder is rectangular, not square like the slide. If you place the slide in the holder horizontally and the holder window is vertical, it will crop off the sides of your picture.

No drivers for Plustek Film Scanner

You may have to uninstall the old software and then go ahead and download the software again. It has the windows 7 drivers in there then install it by running the setup file. You can also go into the device manager and right click on the device in there and manually update the drivers in there by telling it the folder that the drivers are located in.

Getting true color on slide scans

Make sure you have the emulsion (image) side of the slide towards the scanner sensor. Some scanners have a special setting for film still in slide holders to correct for focus. You may need a photo edit program to help with color and density. I find no difference from 35mm to split 5x7s altho bigger is always better.

Negatives scan as negatives and not as pictures with the plustek 7300

In the Twain driver for your intellscan, there should be a selection for the type of scan. It should be set to "black & White Negative" or "Color Negative". The program you use to edit the scanned file should be able to change it to a positive if the scanned result is still negative. Programs such as Photoshop, Paint shop Pro etc can use Twain to have the scanner scan directly into them. There the phot (negative) can be edited and saved.

Convert scanned slides to dvd

Has the scanned slides each been given a File name and saved on the Hard Drive? If yes , burn the files onto a disk from the hard driver using the file names to burn.
