    I have a Digitech XC4881 scanner that I am trying to use to convert my wedding photos on (in hindsight, should have had digital photos taken!).

    The scanner seems to have installed correctly and the appropriate windows are coming up. However, when I put the negatives in, the scanner doesn't seem to read them. Where I should be able to see a 'Live view' of the negative image, nothing comes up. If I try to take a 'snapshot' all I get is white.

    Any suggestions?

    Are talking about using negatives like the older cameras used & converting the negative into a digital photo? You will need a light box, a scanner will not work properly. This conversion box takes the old 35mm negatives and slides and converts them into .jpgs.

    Thanks for the suggestion Ann_2013 but the product in the link you posted looks exactly like the one I have only a different brand/model. The one I have is supposed to work for negative film and slides and has both a slide and negative holder hence my confusion about it not working :(
