My old epson 3170 used to do an ok job for quickscans of slides and negs.
It still does a great job on reflective targets but now slides and negs all come out way underexposed, the histogram just shows a very narrow spike in the center with nothing on either side. (very narrow range).
I think this started after the install of xp-sp2, but I can't be sure, I have had sp2 in for quite a while and everyting else seems to be working just fine. (my slide scanner sitll works normally but is quite slow).
I have the latest epson dirvers, and epson themselves seem to be quite usless in answering questions that don't have a canned answer.
Any ideas ?
