I scanned an ancient (50 year old) mono negative in my Epson DX5000 into Paintshop and it worked ;).

 

So long as the negative has a white background behind it, there's usually no problam (if the scanner lid is black, put a blank piece of paper over the nagative)

What scan dpi did you use? Slide/negative scanners usually have a top light to get a good output. Have you tried color? (Just for informational purposes; I have a scanner that does slides and negatives.)

Can't recollect now - I may have increased the dpi from standard (and never tried it with a colour negative - but if I find one I will)

 

The point is it did work for me in a standard scanner with a white lid. Paintshop will auto-compensate for brightness, contrast and chroma levels
