Scan slides (positives) or negatives with Officejet 5746 All-in-One?

HP Recommended
Officejet 5746
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Is there a way to scan 35mm negatives and/or slides (positives)?

 

The glass has two sections on it, one of which looks like it's negative/slide(positive)-sized... but the manual doesn't say anything about that part and the diagram with the parts labeled doesn't identify that part. The panel and Windows software doesn't indicate it does this either.

 

If it doesn't, what is that section of the glass there for?

 

I'll be dissapointed if it doesn't scan these things, but also super-curious... am thinking if it's not for 35mm scans, then perhaps it's to help decide when the paper from the feeder is coming through to the glass and/or how fast it's going?

Hi,

 

Your ptinter does NOT support scan fron negatives or slides therefore it doea NOT have a TMA (Transparent Material Adaptor) to support this. You can't scan from glass area.

 

There is an option but I have not tried it because I know for sure I won't get good results.
