I have over 25 years worth of slides, some of them I would like to convert to digital. I own a super coolscan 4000 that I use with a Mac and Silverfast software. All the tools seem to be very good, unfortunately my results haven't been. I have been unable to find consistancy in my results. So I have two questions: should I replace some of my hardware/software? Are there any good educational resources available like books, podcasts, classes? I feel like I'm trying to learn how to do maintainance on a Roman chariot. Any advice would be appreciated.

P.S. I've seen some other closely related posts. To be clear, I'd like to find procedural education to make the most of what I have.
