Found some 35 MM slides that I had thought were lost but are not.
Want to convert these 35MM slides to digital format, but my limited
research produces nothing but a can of worms trying to make any sense
about the hardware.
Does anybody have any experience with one of these gadgets and
if so, any suggestions?
The HP scanner I had used a holder with a light in it to flood light
towards the scanner. It worked nicely. Half a dozen in a sitting.
The option plugs into the back of the printer using a DIN connector.
I was helping a friend to rip cassette tapes to CD. That used an
import 'walkman' like box with a USB and killer software.
Might be small one at a time boxes now for this. Check Amazon they use
a wide net. Then Egg and .....

I have a USB turntable for ripping vinyl to mp3 via Audacity. With a little
editing I can fix the major skips and pops.
The problem is there's this one Elton John lyric that I keep getting wrong
when singing along with the mp3. One word has been missing (a skip) from th
e vinyl copy since I was a teenager. I fixed it on the mp3 but now I keep s
inging it like my brain was trained to a few decades ago. :-O

If the memor-ease plus works that well, probably worth the $110+. I didn't
search for prices of the other brands.
My cheap Epson scanner came equipped to scan slides and negatives. It
has a light in the lid and holders to hold a row of slides. Works
well. I scanned all my photos and slides several years ago and they
no longer fade and change colors.
I use a Wolverine. Available from Amazon, does both slides and
negatives; converts the negatives to a positive image in the process.
Around $100. depending on the model. New models even do a wide variety
of formats, not just 35mm. Stand alone; uses an SD card which you can
then connect to your machine. Works very well.
Based on Matt's comment above and some other research, I also
purchased a Wolverine unit with an added SD card.

Glad I could help, Lew. And I'm with you about 6-pt type. Since I'm
into model railroading, I keep an Optivisor handy when first reading
printed manuals. Too, a lot of product manuals are online now, and
finding the ones you need and saving copies of them is well worth the
time and effort.
