I have the very same problem. I've tied shooting them on a Digi, but have always been disappointed with the results. Lately I have been printing to 10x8 so I can scan, but most of my archive is 14x11 or larger. I did scan my negs with a Canoscan 8800F, but it died prematurely, and I didn't want to waste any more money on a new one. Much prefer to use prints of course, and I suppose you could stitch them in two halves, not for me though.
