If you only have a software compatability problem, I highly recommend that you purchase Vuescan Pro software. It supports over 4000 scanners, and for 90 bucks will let you work with just about any scanner that you have. I use it for my slide scanner as well as a flatbed HP.

If you are looking for new hardware, I've been using a Plustek 8100i. It comes in two versions - buy the cheaper SE package. The AI package just includes extra software that I found to be useless - just buy Vuescan at the same time.

BTW, if you want to look at what's available in new slide scanners, B&H Photo is a good place to start.
