Inverness, United Kingdom

The scenery of Scotland, especially the Highlands where I have lived, in Inverness, for the past 39 years, is my passion but I love...

Help needed please!

Can anyone recommend a scanner that is good for scanning mounted slides?
I bought a Hewlett Packard G4050 and it was awful – software wouldn’t install then kept freezing; when I did manage to scan a couple of slides they were very poor and trying a higher setting quite literally took about 20 minutes per slide and then wouldn’t convert into Jpegs and my pc crashed. My language has been more than colourful!!
Their support is awful – so called chat line where you hang on for 10 minutes waiting for each response and none of it helpful.
I’m sending it back tomorrow.
Before I get another, any recommendations would be lots of help and I would be really grateful.
