Try Superia 800 with the SS4000 as a matter of some urgency :-)

IME film type preferences under discussion here are 90% interactions 
between scanner and film, and the nice thing about 4000ppi is that an 
awful lot of the problems seen at ~2700ppi suddenly cease to exist. Oddly 
enough, the 1800ppi Microtek 35t I once owned was also fairly insensitive 
to film type (tho GOK it had other problems). 2700ppi seems to present a 
pixel size right slap bang in the range of grain sizes which 
medium-to-fast speed films utilise, unfortunately.
