I use a similar approach with my HP 9180B because it has troubles in
detecting the media. It was working OK at the beginning (correct detection,
no feeding problems) then started to refuse the sheet (was giving me "no
paper" error), probably because the photocell sensor has lost some
sensitivity due dust/dirt accumulation... Anyway, I now use a same sized
sheet of 200micron (~ 8mil) Yupo under the transparency media and it works
flawlessly. I don't tape the transparency to Yupo since the static (and
friction) is enough to keep them together.

In the past I've found that placing a thin sheet of cardboard (the same
thickness that is packaged in new dress shirts) effective in getting media
to feed into the printer. Try that and see if it helps.
