I had the same issue with the Coolscan IV, a negative strip with a hard end, and you need to open the scanner and on the adapter, ca. 5 cm from the end, there is a spring loaded metal tab, which you need to push in so you can remove the adapter....very simple if you know where it is but took me all together 4 hours to figure out....
