A couple of things:
(1) This scanner will enhance scratches due to film processing (which
generally can happen during the printing phase) which you may not have
noticed before trying to scan them. A scratch which runs the length
of the film sounds like such a scratch.
(2) If this scanner came with the "film strip holder", use it instead
... it will also hold the films flatter.
