A projector does nothing except shine a light through a slide. It is all analog. There is no way to get that light to shine into a computer and create a digital file..

Quite right - it won't work any better than it did in the days before there were any digital cameras..
However the OP might try taking a digital photo of the projected image - perhaps using a matt white card or similar, rather than the textured surface that most projection screens use..
Several people here have reported good results - I recollect that one of the tricks is to get very close to the projection axis!.

You are correct. The scanner converts the light to an image through an array which puts out a digital signal. I am just wondering why such a device couldn't be inserted into the projector so that it could feed the digital signal into a pc...
I converted 500 slides a couple of years ago with a Canon P&S with amazing results by simply using a projector and basic screen. Some of the images looked so good that it was difficult to tell how I did it. I was working with 35 year old slides that had less than perfect quality to begin with, so image quality wasn't as much of a factor..
Just my $.02.
I have used a slide duplicator and comverted 1000s of slides to digital with myKodak P880 and they came beautiful. These slides were over 50 years old..
Here is a siite you can get a duplicator and a lens compability chart to fit thecamera that you have.edanthonyhttp://www.bugeyedigital.com/product_main/bow-sdd.html..
Somewhere on the Konica Minolta forum, there is a DIY project where a chap connected a slide projector to his camera directly and had an auto switch rigged to change the slide a take the next slide photo, untill the whole carousel was done..
It was a very impressive job..
You'll have to do a search for it though..
I think he was using a Minolta D7i, but almost any modern camera would do the job..
