Not Much Luck With This Scanner

Summary: After my old scanner died I read some reviews on scanners, and read that the previous Epson model was good. I went to CompUSA to pick it up, but was told that model was discontinued and here were the new models. Hoping that the current model would be just as good I bought the V100 scanner. My first V100 worked up until I did a few negative strips, and then I got this jack hammer sound and the scans were leaving some parts of the photo off, or stretching the photos.
Summary: First off I've been in the graphic design industry for about 7 years now. I'm also a painter and have slides that I want to digitize for various projects. I've used various brand name scanners over the years and haven't any problems with too many except for an old UMAX back in '98 (but that's another story) Also, I use a G4 powerbook. For the past 4 years I've been using a Canon Lide 30 with no problems - it is an awesome simple scanner.
