Scanners always work better with glossy photos, also, check the colour output to Best Colour Photo, If you enlarge it, the program should automatically increase the dpi level. Otherwise, you could try getting a new scanner!!

Also, make sure your monitor is using 32 bit colour.

I have seen myself trying to get a good scan but cannot, only to realise that my monitor is still in 16bit, which I use for FS98!!

I just got the 3200C and have already played about with the settings.

Use 300dpi and select 'Take extra time to rescan with higher values'.

That should get you going on the 'good landing gear'.  

Then use an image editing program such as Paint Shop Pro or the program that comes with your scanner, to sharpen and adjust contrast brightness saturation etc.
