To get a black background on mine (not the same scanner) I just leave the top open.

And if leaving the top open doesn't work, find a couple of blackie sharpies....and just color in the entire scanner glass around the card!

Hey Rob, when you leave the scanner lid open, try to keep the light in the room you're scanning in as low as you possibly can.

I think I still have the settings I sent to you previously if that will help you any. I have a different scanner but your scanner software should be pretty close to the same as mine. After you get the scan, the rest is on-line with photo-editing.

Let me know if you want the step-by-step sent again, or if it would be easier I'll pm you my phone # and I can go over it with you on the phone. Once you get the hang of three or four scans it's cake after that.
