I'd have a serious question which requires your generous attention.
Ok, here'z the deal: A good friend of mine has several slides (glass slides with plastic frames) which he would like to convert to computerised images - such as JPG, BMP, or anything else I can think of. He is also positive about the existence of such device, which can be connected to a personal computer, and is able to convert the content of these slides into image files.
The problem is, we were unsuccessful about identifying this machine, this device. We know it exists, moreover, we also know that most likely the EPSON corporation is manufacturing this machine, but we had no luck finding out what is this device exactly, what is it called, and where can we grab one of them.
To help your assistance, I made a photo about those slides what it's all about.
As you can clearly see on the picture, these slides are quite old-fashioned, and may be viewed only wit' a proper device - as a slideshow. My very good friend decided that this should be ceased to exist, as he desires to see the content of these slides as images, and since I had the honor of helping him, I decided to drop in and submit this question.
To summarize it, I need the name and the whereabouts of a device, which can be connected to the computer to convert the slide images into image files to the computer, and a few ideas where may I acquire such a device. All is known that EPSON made this device. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
