Re: inability to copy film to pictures

When you were scanning, did you set the scan selection to scan negatives ?

The 35mm strips won,t fit in my holder how should I be inserting them in the holder

The holder that takes 35 mm negative strips on one side and 4, 35 mm slides on the other has a plastic frame that holds the 35 mm film in place. To load film you have to first remove that frame by putting your finger in the opening by the large "A" and popping that end up. The frame fits in only one direction and must be clipped back in by first engaging the two small fingers into openings at the end opposite to the "A" and the lowering the retainer down snapping the 3 sets of 3 clips as you work toward the "A".

I have a Coolscan IV with the coolscan 3 Software, and i have a mac book pro. The following message appears: Error "Could not send look up tables to scanner.", Please help me

Try upgrading to v4.02 driver. You may need to download 4.0 first as 4.02 may only upgrade from 4.0. The scanner runs with v4.02 on my Mackbook pro but I can only scan using the slide adapter and the film holder at present. The film adapter will not work but i'm not sure if this is a hardware or software problem.

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.

"muddy eyes"

I don't think the problem is the eyes. the problem comes because the focus of the scanner is not the same with film zone and films support, there is a one mm difference. You have to specify the good way in the driver.

Coolscan ed 4000

The scanner has a lock which locks the film adapter into the scanner when film is inserted. You probably still have film in the adapter from the last time you used it. If the adapter is pulled to remove it, the connector can become disconnected, which prevents the film from coming out, but the latch is still engaged. With the scanner off, push in the adapter to mate the internal connector. Turn the scanner on then off, the film should eject. Once the film is ejected, the adapter should be able to be removed. Refer to your manual for reference to this problem, I have experienced once before. Once you figure it out, you will not forget, I guarantee.
