    Hi – I am thinking about buying some type of scanner for negatives and slides. I had bought a little scanner recently and it didn’t work at all. The tray would not shut with a slide in it – and if not shut it wouldn’t go into the scanner. Is this a problem with the above scanner? Also, the negatives that I am interested in copying are some my mother had from many, many years ago – would it also copy those? Don’t know what kind of camera it was from but definitely before 35 mm or anything like that. Maybe an old Kodak or something older. Thanks for the information .

      1. “Is this a problem with the above scanner?” – During my testing I never had any trouble getting the slides or negatives into the holder.
      2. “the negatives that I am interested in copying are some my mother had from many, many years ago – would it also copy those?” – The software that comes with the scanner has a lot of features for touching up old slides.
      3. “Don’t know what kind of camera it was from but definitely before 35 mm or anything like that” – I only tested it with 35mm negatives so I don’t know how well it will work with other formats. Check the Plustek website for compatibility.

    From the review, it wasn’t clear that formats other than 35mm
    could be handled by this scanner. I have 2 & 1/4 sq black and white negs to scan with some surface damage.

    I read of one scanner that could compensate for this by not taking surface marks into account but can’t recall what it was called.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks
