    The reason I am scanning is for my website. If I have to I will make a real print and scan it for these pyro negs but I would rather not at this point in time. I usually scan in RGB mode and have the neg emulsion side down.

    So far I don't have a workable solution this this problem except printing them.

    Thanks for all your help, but if anyone has any further suggestions I would appreciate it.

    It looks like the dark point hasn't been set correctly ie on a point which is not sufficiently black. Suggest positioning neg in holder so that you can see some rebate. Perform a preview scan. Then select the dark point from the rebate using dropper tool, make other adjustments, highlights, curves etc, reposition neg in holder and then make the scan.

    Should this not work, it may well be that the neg is beyond normal dynamic range of scanner, which is unlikely. Vuescan allows multi-pass scans, I used to use 3 with my Epson (rather less than) Perfection 1200, then they average out noise which enables much better shadow detail. Maybe Silverfast would enable you to do the same.

    Concur scanning in 16 or 48 bit to remove posterisation.You can open out the shadows using curves.

    How do you set the black and white set points in Silverfast SE?

    I don't know, suggest using the help facility. It is a fundamental control, so it will bbe there. It prevents highlights getting burnt out and, as in your case, the shadows blocking up.
