APS film to PC

I'm looking for cost-effective ways to convert an unprocessed APS film to jpeg files. I use my little take-anywhere Canon IXUS for snap shots, like country walks or at a recent company function, so I'm not expecting any great quality.

The cost of processing is usually quite high, so to add transfer to CD will surely cost even more. I do not have a flatbed scanner, else I would probably just scan the prints. I do have a film scanner (Minolta DualscanIV), but I'm not sure I can justify buying the APS adaptor (79 from epz shop).

Can anyone recommend a processing lab that can provide CDs with prints, or even CD-only?

Thanks for any advice,
Tony

I've found a CD-only service (4.99/40exp) at Photo Shop Online Has anyone used their services before? Looks like it is linked to Fuji, so should be ok?

I have my APS films developed only, not printed. I bought a used APS film scanner on eBay. So I put the developed film in the scanner, walk away, and check the result when the scans are ready. I can then throw away any scans I don't like, and next I upload all the scans I do like to an on line processing service, or I do some post processing first.

In the meantime I have put my dedicated APS film scanner (Kodak) up for sale (since I'm getting ready to purchase a DSLR). It costs less than the APS adaptor, so maybe that's a solution...
