    You will need either a dedicated slide scanner (about 250 and up) or a flatbed with a slide attachment (from 80 and up). The PlusTek are a good value option for dedicated scanners with Epson probably the best flatbeds.

    How much you spend will depend on how many you have, the condition of the slides and their quality (were they taken with Leicas or box Brownie for example).

    Why can't he use the scanner in his Deskjet f380? Seems you need to use a manual mode

    Depending on how many slides you have (and how many of them you want to scan), you may also want to consider using a reputable lab to scan them for you. If you dont shoot on neg and/or slide these days and are just archiving what you have in boxes, you may find that a new-bought dedicated scanner could end up gathering dust after a while

    You can photograph them if you own a macro lens or any lens with a decent close-focus capability.

    Dedicated 35mm scanners can be picked up quite cheaply these days, I find the Plusteks just fine.

    Even better if you have access to a spare flat screen, stick a white screen on it, lay it flat, an instant light box.
