If you have problems scanning transparency film then the reason is on your side (either lack of knowledge and / or a scanner / scanning software problem).
In general transparencies are easier to scan because
- you always have the original: you just look at the slide and know how the colors really are and have to look after scanning; this check is impossible with negative film
- transparency films are finer grained, and as all scanners beside real drum scanners enhance film grain by scanner noise you benefit from the finer grain of reversal film.
