I expect Ed is right & these are Instamatic format. If they are 22mm 
square then they should fit your scanner fine as 35mm is larger at 24 
mm x 36 mm but I have a vague memory that Instamatic was 40mm x 40mm 
which would explain your difficulty.

You should be aware that much Instamatic film was made with a very 
thick emulsion to ensure unsharp results (yes really!) and give good 
exposure latitude. This could lead to all sorts of difficulties.
