I have a Dimage, which I last used about 5 years ago.  I managed to
get through about 2/3 of my piles of old color negatives.  I recently
was thinking of doing some more, but it turned out that Minolta is no
more, and they never released drivers for Vista or Win7...

For reference, where is a scan of a 35mm slide (Velvia?) from my scanner:

(Warning: it is a huge 14 MB TIFF.)

I agree, it is tedious, and it may be worth paying somebody to do it.

BTW, I bet that any accessory that allows a regular flatbed scanner to
scan 35mm will do a terrible job.
