Question about Canon CanoScan 8400F Film Scanner
I have a brand new iMac and a CanoScan 8400f. I have installed the latest drivers yet when I go to where I used to be able to 'Select Source' and choose Negative or Positive rather than the usual Color/Grayscale/Black & White etc..
This option is not appearing any more. Any ideas? This is kinda urgent!
If you're using Mac OS X 10.5.x, you definitely need a new driver. Download here.
For Mac or Windows, if film is not an option in the dropdown, then most likely the Film Adapter Unit (Scanner Lid) is not being detected. Check the connection on the back. Make sure the cable going from the lid to the base of the scanner is secure.

I wrestled with this same issue for a couple of days, but finally found the solution! The black cable that comes out of the lid actually gets plugged into the back of the scanner next to the USB input and the power input. Then make sure you open the lid and find the black tab that keeps the white foam sheet in place and pop it out, exposing the light source inside the scanner lid. Insert a tray and you should be in business!
