HI, has anyone had any success with digital film scanners. They are on sale everywhere these days, I bought one from a company on E-bay, it didn't work, managed to send it back asking for a replacement, it duly arrived and guess what -it didn't work.
The scanner is VUPOINT Digital Film Scanner
FS-C1-VP, downloaded software, driver and Photoimpressions. When I try and scan a slide all I see is a screen of flashing lines, occasionally parts of the pic is just visible but then gets swallowed up by the lines.
To me it would appear that the scanner driver is not working correctly, I have had numerous attempts at uninstalling and re-installing but nothing works.
After doing a search on Google on this scanner people all the world are having similar problems, some have managed to get it to work on Windows Vista, but is only supposed to work on XP and USB 2 which I have. Most people are saying it's a piece of junk which at the moment I believe.
If anyone as one and has got it working can they tell me how they managed it please.
