Problem scanning odd-sized negs with Epson V750Pro

    I'm hoping someone has experience with this.

    I have to scan tons of 110 negatives on the V750 Pro. There is no film
    holder for that size and putting them on the glass created too many
    Norton rings to deal with.

    Epson suggested I make my own cardboard holders for all of the odd
    negatives. I've done that, but cannot marquis the individual frames
    properly.

    I do a preview scan (in professional mode) of the whole bed. I then
    marquis each negative frame. The scanner moves the marquis over and
    catches only half the frame when scanning.

    The only way that has worked is to marquis one frame, hit "zoom" which
    previews again and enlarges, and shows the marquis in the wrong place. I
    then move the marquis to the frame edges again in the zoom window and scan.

    I can't do this for every frame, I have hundreds to scan. I also have to
    scan the old Kodak wheel film, where every frame will be at an angle.
    The scanner is moving the marquis and missing the frames on those too.

    Can anyone help? Is there some setting I'm missing?

    Thanks,

    Rhonda

    Not knowing the V750 myself, but this suggests there is still some
    'auto-position' function active.
    Are you certain that you de-activated all the aut-exposure, auto-size,
    auto-position, etc.... options?

    HTH,

    Hi, thanks for answering.

    It does seem like an auto-postion thing, but I haven't found what
    controls that. It's not a setting in professional mode that I can find,
    maybe it was pre-set. I will have to look more into it tomorrow.

    Thanks,

    Rhonda
