I purchased one of these from maplins in November 08 and still have not figured out how to use it, all that come up on my screen after following the ibstructions are copies of the negatives themselves - NO photographs. can anyone advise me as to what I am (if at all) doing wrong
Have you installed the software and running the scanner through the software?
Please see the FAQ below
Alan(20/08/2009)This works well scanning negatives when I eventually got it working on my Windows XP computer, the problem is the drivers, so did a search and found them here External link removed. The link can be requested via our technical department directly you need the one for XP only (FS-C1-VP). I also used an earlier version of Photo Impression6. I hope this is of help to many who have failed to get it running properly
So contact Maplin Tech support and they should be able to point you in the right direction of downloadable drivers or the correct procedure for installation and use.

a photo is made by a radiant energy on a sensitive surface to be technical. but it regular term it is light(radiant energy) on film, photopaper, or a digital sensor(sensitive surface). after one interacts with the other it is either processed with chemicals for the paper and film or 1's and 0's for the sensor... at this point the paper is a photograph and the film can be printed as well as the digital image my be viewed on a device or printed as well.
Old film projectors had a spinning disk with cut-outs in the light path (looks like a fan, but flat). This blocked the light when the film was moving between frames, then let it shine through when the film was stationary. It sounds like this disk has become stuck or is not being driven (another belt?).
Your question is unclear, but if you're asking how to take photographs on a non-digital film camera in order to edit them digitally then you'll need a film scanner (avoid cheap ones) or a flatbed scanner with film scanning abilities.
I've reverted to film from unreliable and over complicated digital cameras and scan all my negatives and transparencies using an Epson Perfection 4870 Photo scanner. They're nearly as good as the latest model but only cost around £100 for a used example in perfect condition with all original accessories.
