john: I have a Minolta DiMage Scan Multi Pro. With the right carriers, it can scan film up to 6 x 9 cm, which gets a lot of the older roll film sizes.
I knew Minolta made a scanner that scanned other sizes in addition to 35mm but I couldn't remember which model so thanks for mentioning yours...'-}}

>>I second the kudos for Photoshop's spot healing brush. But, again, you can wind up spending an hour or two or even more on just one scan if you want to get it looking really good. If you just need to be able to recognize faces and places, you may not want to invest the time to clean things up that much.

That's certaining something that can be done well after the fact rather than immediately after scanning and it could be that I just have particularly dirty slides but even using a slide/neg cleaning brush, I still find lots of crud in my scans...'-}}

I know there some sort of solution one can buy--PEC?--and I've considered it but then I'd have to dismount and remount my slides which seems more trouble than using the Healing brush however, for negatives it might be worth getting...
