Copying transparencies

  Rusty 16:38 24 Feb 2008

I have an HP All-in-one and I would like to copy old transparencies to a CD or DVD without the expence of a dedicated copier. What do I need and how do I do it? I am used to electronic and electrical work

You need to use a scanner with a transparency facility built into it. These have a light in the lid. An example is the Epson Perfection V350 click here. I have an older model, the Epson Perfection 3490 Photo, which while not as good as a dedicated transparency scanner, gives very good results. Enthusiasts have produced home-made gadgets to use on scanners, but the results aren't very good.

Be very careful which scanner you get.

HP All in Ones, or at least the software, are very particular about which other scanners they will work alongside.

I have a Primefilm slide/negative scanner using Cyberview software, and to use it I have to "uninstall" the HP in "Printers & Faxes"
