Epson Perfn1650 Photo scanner -colour neg problem

Trying to scan to file colour negs with Epson Perfection 1650 Photo scanner. On Auto it recognises the negs and (eventually - very slowly)scans the strip of 4. As I only want one of the strip I've tried to use the manual mode, hoping to select the single neg from the preview.

However, it insists the document is a colour photo and I can't see any way to persuade it otherwise.

Is there a way or does it not support colour negs in manual mode?

I'm using XP with SP1.

More problems. I'm laboriously using auto mode and now that is playing up. It recognise some neg strips as colour negatives but every third one it see as a colour positive. If I switch off, disconnect the power then remove and replace the TPU connector when switching back on it correctly sees the strip as a clour negative.

Frustrating is the politest word that comes to mind.
