Exchanging the Universal Magazine - What to do if the scanner moves in and out several times after changing the magazine
If you'd like to perform a magazine change on a slide scanner (such as the DigitDia 6000 or DigitDia 7000), and the transport arm of the scanner moves in and out multiple times there's a quick fix to that.
Option 1: instruction video
If you have rented the slide scanner from Scanexperte, you'll get access to our instruction video. Please take a look at the instructional video, which includes also an explanation of the magazine change. (in German language only)
Go to the page https://www.scanexperte.de/diascanner-video.html
Enter the password for the video, which you will find in the letter sent with the slide scanner.
If you only want to view the magazine change section, you can fast-forward to 18:38 min. The explanation of the magazine change then takes about 2 minutes.
Option 2: Without instruction video
Go into the software and click on the slide icon, which has a hash-key (#) in the upper left-hand corner:

Enter the number "1" in the window that opens (see Fig. 2) to inform the scanner that it is now at the beginning of the magazine after changing the magazine. Important: The first slide in the new magazine must now also be inserted in the device.
