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.

Photography is a fad well nigh on its last legs, thanks largely to
the bicycle craze.
