john_b: I did, however, spend an hour or so this morning making a kind of frame from bits of plastic and stuff which sits on the glass platen and does a reasonable job of holding the film flat.
Glad that you've found a reasonable workaround...

I wonder if you could have a framing place do a custom cut mat--2 pieces for top and bottom--and have them cut the mat opening in the mat board sheets the same size as your scanner bed with the hole in the middle of the mat board. Depending on the size of the negative, you might be able to have multiple openings so that you could scan more than one negative at a time.

You could use hinging tape to hinge the "top" and "bottom" mat board together so that it would be easier to place the negative.
