Is the unit under warranty?  See if you can send just the SA-20 back for
repair or replacement, and in the meantime use the filmstrip holder and the
MA-20.  The SA-20 must be faulty if it is scratching strips of 4 frames.
It's designed to handle strips of up to 6 frames.

I've never had the SA-20 scratch my negs.  All the scratches on the negs are
from mishandling by the lab technicians when they originally processed the
film. :(
