Re: scanning

Sometimes the software works strangely, with no indication why. Usually it has to do with the many settings which seem to change periodically or when you try to modify settings and something unintended happens. Try resetting the "settings" to factory defaults, see if it makes any difference. If this does not work, try removing the software and re-installing.

After scanning one photo slide and storing it on my computer, I can't delete this first scan to scan another

It's not necessary to delete the previous scanned photo. To scan another slide, place it in the scanner and press the PREVIEW button.

Problem saving scanned negatives to laptop. Epson 2400 scanner.

If you are scanning in Color and in high resolution, then the file size will be very big. Try and close other programmes in your Laptop and try. If in color try 150 or 200 dpi option and also select JPG format. Alternatively you can increase your RAM in the laptop. S. Mohan

Negative Scanning Problem Using Epson Scan Software

Make sure the rectangular slots at either end of the film frame are not obstructed or covered in any way. When I attempted to scan color negatives I had the same darkness problem in the scanned image. When I cleared those rectangular slots, everything was fine. I hope this helps.

Mine was doing the same thing. When I get on the program, before I click "acquire" to preview and scan, I click OFF the toolbox and then everything seems to be okay and I can go ahead and scan.
