Epson V500 Scanner

Can anyone help with this please. I am running windows 7, with my Epson v500 scanner I an scann medium format negatives, but when I scan 35mm I get an error message document type not found!

Do the scanning preferences give you the option to show which medium you want to scan? Perhaps you need to change a setting somewhere.

Only guessing, I don't have that particular scanner - but my own scanner Epson 3490 Photo, does give me that option.

Hi Technotiger Yes it does give the option and I have changed it all I now get is black squares that is what is so annoying.

Do you still get the error message?

OOPPS I feel very stupid now, I put it down to my 88 shift pattern at work this week and being very tired, I was putting the negative holder in the wrong way round - please don't laugh :-)

It's easily done. I did it once with my Epson 1660.
