I'm guessing that it's your software and/or settings. I use vuescan with two Epson scanners; 4180 and a 4490. Here are four examples of 6x6 negatives that I've scanned. Taken by my father with either a Rolleicord or 'Flex, two are over 50 years old and two are more than 60 years old.

It's been extremely helpful and I owe Mr. Poirier thanks for posting it. I hope it is as helpful to you and others here.
