Now, my MBoard: GA/8SIMLH

Hi, sounds more like a software problem. Are you using the software that came with the scanner? If you are, check the settings of the software or even update the software.
Most certainly I used the software that came with the scanner.
I also rechecked the setup, everything is OK.
But again: when I scan any film - negative or positive - the scanner working
fine, only the photo's create problems.
It seems to me: while I'm scanning films, the scaner working slowly,
but when I scan photo's, the scanner work like a racing car - very fast!
I also cheked any updates -I find none, so far.
Maybe the CanoScan is too good for my slow computer?
