Sorry to ask such a basic question, but I'm hoping someone can assist. I just received a Coolscan 5000 and I'm not a whiz with computers. I have read the instruction manual, but it leaves a lot to be desired.

What are the steps recommended when scanning in film negatives? It seems to be taking quite a bit longer than it should. What confuses me is that you must press the "scan" button in order to scan the negatives and display on the preview screen. Do you have to press "scan" again in order to save the photos? That's what I do now and it seems there must be a better way. I will appreciate any help...
