When I looked into this for us, unless you were going to have a continuing 
need the answer was to just pay someone to scan the slides for you. was who we used, with very good results.

The reason is that good scanning equipment was costly and good scanning 
equipment that was also fast enough to deal with a number of slides was 
extra special costly.  For us, it was a one time deal to get old photos 
digital and there'd be no need once we'd done it once, so was 
cheaper, easier, and took a lot less time.
