HI. I have just purchased a negative scanner and have lots of old photo cassettes that have already been developed and negatives/photos made years ago. The photos and negatives have been lost. Can i get the photos off the old cassettes at home?

Could not recall this format........nor to be frank your saying about getting photos off of the cassette but saying "photos and negatives have been lost"

So, you might find this guide usefull especially the picture of the base of the cassette that has special mechanism to the 'status' of the cassette....mainly I would say to be sure the film contents have been processed/developed

Lastly, how to extract the roll of negatives using DIY

I have an old APS Ixus and found it hard to both get film and anyone who could develop it.

It was a bit like a MiniDisc player. Great idea at the time but was soon super-seeded and forgotten!
