Can I Scan Colour Slides using a std scanner

  six-h 20:13 24 Nov 2004

I Have a Medion scanner (£29.99) which is admirable for photos, docs and ocr work.
a friend has the later model (£49.99) which has a slide adaptor, could I make such an adaptor, or is it all in the software??
Any kind enthusiast have any tips, I only want to scan the occaisional slide so investment limited to time and effort not £££ !

Thanks ton Your link seems to be the answer to a maiden's prayer, all those years watching Blue Peter are about to be tested to the extreem!!

A bit of trial and error and you should get a result as good as the one your friend has.
