This is what I had suspected all along, but I wanted everyone's advice nonetheless. The next roll I develop I will not put in a sleeve and scan it first. I'll let you guys and gals know what happens.

By the way, I've never heard of fold lock sleeves and envelopes. Where can I buy them. Incidentally, I've been using PrintFile pages up until now. Since I don't contact print anymore, I don't see the point in using them.

Thanks for all the replies so far!
