I recently bought a new Epson Perfection V330. I have several old Magic Lantern slides which I would like to scan. Scanning them as a document creates shadows. I think they might look a lot better if I tried to scan them as film, but when I do that, my computer complains:
Please remove the document mat and/or replace the document cover.
The document mat which came with the scanner is only for small, recent slides... not the big, irregularly shaped glass ones.
There has got to be a way to mcguyver this or hack it so that it doesn't complain at me when I put my slides in and scan as film. Could anyone explain how? Is it light detection that is causing this error, or something mechanical?
