    (I hope this is appropriate for this ng; if there's another more
    suitable, would appreciate info)

    My Dimage Scan Dual IV is starting to have problems transporting the
    film; sounds as if a gear wheel is worne and is not always engaging.
    Means I have to be beside it when using it, and I have many hundred neg
    strips, also slides, still to scan.

    Any suggestions about repair?

    Can anyone tell me if any of the Konica Minolta scanners are likely to be
    continued under Sony? (I find the Dual IV gives much better results than
    a Dual II I borrowed some time ago).

    And finally, if I can't keep with KM, am I looking at Nikon Coolscan?
    ukp450 is somewhat above my budget. Any recommendations?

    Best wishes to all,
