You need a scanner with a 'transparency unit' (TPU) to scan
film. I assume the films are larger than what cheap TPUs
can handle (they usually max out with mid format slides or
negatives). I have an EPSON Expression 1680 which has a=20
TPU that allows full size scanns (Letter or A4). See if
you can get something similar for you HP scanner.
