Simon, See my earlier post to this forum dated 1/3/02. I have similar problems and I'm apparently stuck with my defective scanner. If you can return it, my advice would be to do so ASAP! Get the NIKON!!!!
: I recently got a FS4000 and have done a few scans and at the moment they all seem to be coming up with a lot of noise. Using FilmGet or VueScan with mutiple or long exposure passes does not help.
: I am now comparing one film which I had transfered to Photo-CD and the FS4000 scans have a lot more noise than the Photo-CD scans.
: I notice one use how has to turn off his stereo and not use his PC but for £600 worth of scanner I think it should work properly.
: Has anyone else had these problems? Should I send the unit back. I did have a Nikon Coolscan IV but that arrived broken so I sent that back and replaced it with this!
