    I have a few thousand mounted 35mm slides in Kodak Carousel slide trays. I
    no longer have a projector. I want to scan the slides and store them on
    CD's.

    The film scanners I read about seem to focus on unmounted film. I'd really
    appreciate some suggestions of what to look at to do this job.

    Thanks for you time... Joe

    Most of the better film scanners have a holder for strips of 6 frames
    unmounted, or also a holder for 4 mounted 2x2 slides. There is a motor
    that moves the holder so it can batch scan that group.

    Except some of the Nikon models only accept one mounted slide, and some do
    four. And some of the top end Nikons have an optional (very expensive)
    holder for 50 mounted slides.
