I am trying to scan some 6cm X 6cm black & white negatives on an Epson Perfection V500 scanner. It tells me it canít do this in auto mode and on other modes it sometimes canít recognise where the negative starts or ends and freezes during a scan. Does anyone have one on these machines, who could advise me the best way to scan 6 X 6?
This is off topic for APUG, so you might try asking over at DPUG.
I don't have that scanner, but it may be a problem in the software. My scanner has b/w negative film as an option in the software, and I use "professional mode." Wish I could be more help.
Suzanne, sorry about this, as I do realise this is a bit off topic for APUG. But the reason I posted it here as opposed to DPUG is that the V500 is a film scanner and thought not many people on DPUG would be scanning film, but perhaps more on APUG may.

Of course DPUG is also open to 100% digital processes and traditional printing from original digital files.
