The scanner delivers poor results
I bought this scanner around 2001. It worked well until I bought a DSLR. I rarely used it for the next five years. In the past month I began using it again to scan photos of friends who had since died too soon. :-(
It does sound painfully ironic that my scanner appears to have died when my three friends did.
I have searched on the web for a few days. I am starting to believe that I should just send me slides to a pro service, pay $1/slide, and forget about the time to scan. I also want to scan 2.25x2.25 negatives, too.
