Do you scan directly on the scanner glass or does the scanner have a 
negative attachment or cover? I use UMAX Powerlook III's and get poor 
results when using the normal cover. But, with the negative 
attachment (which is a different cover) works fine. The light is 
transmitted through the negative and the CCD sensor is in the cover 
which picks up the image.
